I love love love St. Marcus school! They have become family to us. You won't get lost in this school. Meaning they will help your family in anyway that help! I have a special needs child that does not have a IEP. From first to fourth grades each teacher has pulled him in closer. When orthes schools have send him home. Love is a action here! Teachers are here 6:30am to 6:00pm. The St. Marcus staff can be reached any 24 hours by cell,email or texts. This school year I have heard and seen many new students. Didn't know Jesus before coming to St. Marcus school. I love to hear my children sing tha latest Jesus song they learned. Jesus needs to be in our home and everywhere you are. The work really hard here but, when time to have fun they go for it. My children just enjoy comic to here. St. Marcus is a blessing to our family and we now are a stronger family! No Excuses at M-house! We call it a Great school because it's life changing! Please I welcome you to come plan a visit.

My school is St. Marcus. My child started in k4. He is now in 5th grade. He is reading on a 9th grade reading level by state standards. He had a 3.6 on his last report card because of that he gets to wear a tie that distinguishes his gpa. He wants to attend Princeton University, in Trenton New Jersey. He asked us to help him get there. Wow..he has a plan in 5th grade. I know he may change his mind on which college to attend but the fact he has a plan makes him strive not to be a statistic. I love the drive of leadership in the school. When I'm not sure about an assignment he is given I go straight to the teacher for help. His teacher Mr. Steilow is available before I start working at 6:30a.m. I love that! My best advice for a parent considering this school is get in line early to fill out the application on Feb. 1st.

St Marcus goes above and beyond. My girls started attending this school in the Fall 2013, they came to this school with exceptional grades. You may wonder why I selected this school , its because I believed they needed more both spiritually and educationally. The St Marcus staff, pastor's and teachers have not let me down. I am so thankful that God placed us with like minds. It is a caring, school that is not willing to let students fail.

My 5 children went to St. Marcus Lutheran for 4 years and it was such a blessing! We moved to Mississippi this year around Christmas and when they were enrolled into the new school they tested and they could hardly believe how prepared they really were. I am so grateful for Christian values, the compassion, the communication, the home visits, the check-ins, and character building that the teachers and staff imparted into my children. It will never be forgotten. I continue to refer children there even to this day.

My daughter has been at St. Marcus for 8 years and she will be graduating soon. She placed very well on her high school placement tests and also on her standardized tests. She has been well prepared for high school. I also love that she feels morally accountable for her actions and she's not just living for the moment like the media and music is telling our children nowadays. I feel like St Marcus played a huge roll in this along with her up bringing. I love the staff. They have great attitudes and bug hearts. The communication is awesome! Home visits are done every school year to meet/greet your new teachers. They prayed with us. I am very sad to leave St Marcus! I wish they had a high school.

St Marcus is beyond amazing! My son is in his second year at St Marcus and already they have exceeded my expectations. The staff creates a wonderful atmosphere not only for the students but us parents as well. This was by far one of the best decisions I could have ever made for my son and his further! I highly recommend this school to any and everyone that takes they're child(ren) education and future seriously! They instill the importance of an education while incorporating the word of GOD what more could you ask for!

This school went far beyond what I expected it to be. The teachers are so awesome and loving. My kids love their school! I never worry about my kids when I take them to school because St. Marcus takes good care of them. My kids have been there 5 years and not one time have I consider taking them out of there school due to conflict or anything. The students are required to work hard and it truly pays off. My son is in the third gird and he does some of the same work I work on in my college math. My 5 year old left k4 knowing how to read really well. The one thing they believe is there's no excuse! The world doesn't take excuses and neither do they... I love that they don't just teach the kids but they also bring Jesus into their lives and show them his love through their love. I don't think any school could top this one!

AMAZING! Christ centered and college prep geared, St. Marcus works wonders for children! They offer Power Hour so students can get homework done. Tirelessly the staff works together with each other and with parents to meet the needs of students. Their Reading and Math programs keep parents posted with e-mail updates on how the student did on that weeks objective. That is beyond the daily planner which a parent needs to sign nightly after homework is done. St. Marcus is dedicated to serving Milwaukee!

This school is a beacon of light within an otherwise darkened community. I am sure it is the best school not only in the city, but in the entire state. I wish that I had gone to a school like this as a child because I am certain that I would have had a much better education and positive outlook on life.

This is my children's first year at St. Marcus. My second grader was reading at an early kindergarten level when she first started. Now she is reading at an early second grade level. She receives extra tutoring during the school day and after school. My 7th grader was reading at a late first grade level when he started St. marcus in the middle of the school year. Now he is reading at a third grade level. He too receives extra tutoring services. st. marcus has been a Godsend for my family and I would have left Wisconsin already if it had not been for St. Marcus.

I love St. Marcus. This school has made a major diffrence in my childrens lives. My oldest daughter often comments on the diffrence that Mr. Hoff her 8th grade teacher made with her success in her learning Algerbra and how much eaiser it is for her in high school. Big Ups. [to] the St. Marcus Staff. St. Marcus is also helping my son become a strong person, able to accept correction and move on with thanks to Mr. Tyson, Mr. Festerling and Mrs. Young who has work very hard with him these past two years. Thank you so much and I love you.

Disciplined, College Prep, and Very Loving. St Marcus offers parents a wonderful choice in education. When you enter the school, you can hear a pin drop; parents are always welcome to observe. Reading starts in K4; my little boy gets attention and a daily commitment from his teacher and her assistants. My son's love for his Lord has grown immensely as well as his appreciation for all cultures. My daughter is in 2nd grade and is excelling in a structured classroom that challenges her daily! All students are welcomed in to school and are given their good-bye greetings as well. Simply the best there is to offer!!! I feel safe for my children and proud to be a parent of St Marcus.

This is an excellent school. You know this the second that you walk into the doors. When you have students that want go to school on a daily and ready to learn you get great love for that type of enviorment. I am so grateful that I was given a choice. I feel that having a chance to choose a school for my daughter has made a tremendous difference in her life, and mine! This school also has teachers that are the most dedicated than anyone on any job that I've ever seen. Go and check it out. You can go during school, or beleive me when I say this on any school day, you will catch a teacher or 2 there around 9-10pm. For-sure. They even have school on Sat. which is optional! Don't take my word on this go and see for yourself! St. Marcus is MY CHOICE! You can make it yours TOO!

Mature, complete and genuine love has built this school into a model of what America should be. The adults (faculty, staff and volunteers) require respect and give it to the students as well. Proper English is the required language. Effort and strength of character are praised and rewarded at every opportunity. The academics at St. Marcus are more challenging than anywhere else in the city, and our children are not only succeeding: they are asking for more. Jesus Christ is King at St. Marcus. Family is all-important. Children are cherished. We are embracing the future and preparing our children for it.
