Saint Mark's School is exactly what my children need. I have three children in the building and they are being academically challenged,...they are growing in their faith,...and they are practicing being caring, kind humans. The teachers and staff are dedicated and put the children first. The principal, Zach Zeckser, is creative, dedicated, and working tirelessly to ensure the best culture of learning and safety possible.
Both of my "Markers" love their school, friends and teachers. Happy children equals happy family...sometimes it's just that simple!
I am a preschool teacher at Saint Mark's Catholic School and I love the school! I particularly love the faith-filled Catholic Community which is committed to both CHRIST and His Church!
We discovered after choosing St. Mark's because of it's proximity to our home that it was much more than just the neighborhood school - it's an amazingly welcoming community of parents, teachers, and staff that provide all the support you could want in educating thoughtful, well-rounded children. I love seeing other parents and kids in the neighborhood stores and shops around the school too. We're excited about the future for this little gem of a school.
Saint Mark's Catholic School is a wonderful community school where the kids are safe, encouraged, and challenged. The teachers care so much for each child. We are moving forward in some exciting ways. The best way to get a sense of our community is to come see it for yourself! Call, email or stop by any time!
St Mark's provides my children a safe, nurturing, and welcoming environment. It is a neighborhood school that provides us as parents wonderful opportunities to be involved in our children's education.
It is great working in an environment of cooperation with parents, teachers and staff as we strive to form our students in the Catholic faith and provide an excellent education.
My child thrived at St. Mark's and is a successful, A honor role student in high school now. The foundation she built at St. Mark's prepared her well for the academic rigor of a challenging high school. And the community continues to be warm, welcoming, and an integral part of my family's life. Thank you St. Marks!
St. Mark's is a hidden jewel in the heart of Merriam Park. The teachers are wonderful, the Principal is outstanding, and the community of parents is welcoming and committed. We have three children in the school and feel lucky that we are here.
iI love this school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All of the kids love it there and all of the teachers r great
This is our third year at St. Mark's. I echo the comment below about the committed parents and opportunities outside the classroom. In addition, it is a great environment for working parents as the before and after care is excellent.
We chose this school because of the good test scores (95%s) and the variety of the curriculum. They have spanish, computer, art, music, library and PE teachers for K-8th grade in addition to 4 science classrooms and two gyms. The teachers we've had (K-4th grade) have all been very enthusiastic and creative. We have liked the teaching material so far. There are also several after school programs such as reading club and Mad Science. They often have field trips. They are very concerned about safety and teaching kids fairness and responsibility. The parents are very involved and do a lot of volunteer work. They have several fund raising activities such as fairs. Although they get religious education, the school does not restrict enrollment by non-Catholics. I would highly recommend this school for anyone who cares about their kids education and well being.
