elementary school is pretty good but middle school is not great. some teachers are very quick tempered and can easily be seen to not appreciate their students work. although academics and discipline are OK.
We switched our son to St Mark to get a real middle school experience. He has grown academically and socially in the friendly environs of St Mark. The teachers are excellent and inspire children to achieve beyond what is considered normal. The children learn discipline and social graces from the teachers' example and coaching. We're very glad that our son is a part of this great school.
My children were placed in St. Mark Middle School because at public school they were adrift in a vast sea of students and peer pressure. At St. Mark Middle School, the students wear uniforms which drastically inhibits peer pressure. The staff is very in tune with each students academic needs, as well as knows each students personality. There are high expectations on personal responsibility, and no innappropriate behavior is tolerated. The highly educated staff keeps the learning exciting and current. Students grow academically and have a sense of belonging. It is worth every penny!
