St Mark Catholic School5

We love the school and feel blessed to have stumbled across it years ago. Academics are really important to our family and feel this has been strong from the very beginning for all three of our kids. We also love the emphasis on personal accountability and Christian values. The last thing I will say is that you will hear a lot about the St. Mark Community. It is true - it is a great group of people! No place is perfect but all and all, we are very happy with the school.
Two of my children are currently students at St. Mark, and one graduated last year and attends a local Catholic high school. All have attended since preschool, and we couldn't be happier with our experience there! As with anything, if you put more into it, you will get more out of it. My husband and I have always been very active in the school serving as volunteers in many capacities. We have met many other families through our involvement. It has also allowed us to see what goes on during the day, to see our children in their learning environment and how the teachers interact with the students. I am always reassured after I leave the school that my children are in capable and loving hands. My children are happy, well-adjusted and thriving in their education and spiritual lives. My oldest child is excelling in high school while taking pre-AP classes and is very active in several school clubs/activities. I give credit to St. Mark Catholic School for everything she received there to mold her mind, body, and spirit.
I am a parent and I could not be more happy with this school. The administration here is so helpful and positive. I know that the teachers and admin are truly doing what is best for my child. I have a child that requires more attention than some, and she couldn't be in better hands. She is getting the guidance that she needs with the nurturing atmosphere that all of us want for our children. I am blessed to have found this school.
I attended St Mark Catholic School when it first opened. Thirty years later, now my children go there. I can't say enough about this school. I am living proof that the education I received through St Mark helped me sail through my upper education. The faculty is very caring and truly love their job. There is no other school that I would trust when it comes to my kids future.
I have two children at Saint Mark and one that graduated from Saint Mark. The Administration and Teachers do a great job of promoting learning, respect and charity. I know that my children are well prepared for whatever high school they choose when they leave Saint Mark
I have two children currently at Saint Mark and one that graduated from Saint Mark. While it has been true in the past that the sports at Saint Marks have taken a back seat to the school, all of my kids have participated in multiple sports at Saint Mark over multiple grades and have enjoyed the experience. Over the last couple of years the attention to sports has gotten markedly better, but lets be honest, I pay the tuition to send my kids to Saint Mark for the education and faith based atmosphere and that is top notch! My kids are prepared for any high school they choose coming out of Saint Mark and that is what is really important!
Our three children attended St. Mark from preschool to 8th grade. They received an excellent education and were well prepared for high school and beyond. They are now college educated and gainfully employed in a very competitive job market. I attribute much of their success to the basic academic foundation they received at St. Mark. They grew in their faith and made life long friends. If you are looking for a strong faith based education, St. Mark is the school!
We currently have two children enrolled at St. Mark and we have been part of the school for nine years. Our children have received an excellent education that is rigorous and faith-based. The teachers have provided guidance and support in each grade level. The community of St. Mark is our family and has provided us with a home away from home. St. Mark Catholic School is an exceptional school and we are pleased to be a part of such a first-rate community.
