"When I first came to St. Mark's halfway through 6th grade, I knew no one, and I didn’t know what to expect. Before St. Mark's, I hadn’t been very involved in my school community, and I wasn’t particularly close to my teachers and peers. Almost immediately, I found a second family at St. Mark’s. I found a caring community that encouraged me to grow, not only as a student, but also as a person. Slowly, I found that I was putting myself out there more. Looking back on my experience now, I realize that having such a loving and caring school community created a desire for involvement. Being in this community made me want to give back, to help other kids experience the joy of St. Mark's. St. Mark’s is such a special place to wake up and go to every day."
A Solid Foundation for Higher Education
After graduating from St. Mark’s, I went onto Bellaire High School, the University of Southern California, and finally the Yale Law School. I really feel my education at St. Mark’s—particularly Middle School—prepared me for my future education, at every level! One of St. Mark’s greatest strength is its emphasis on research and writing. Very few schools provide the level of training and feedback that the students at St. Mark’s receive.
A Welcoming Place
St. Mark's has such a welcoming environment ! The children and their families as well as the wonderful staff create a community. A community that works together to achieve a happy, nurturing, academically stimulating environment where a student can grow and gain confidence while discovering their talents and strengths. I am so proud to be part of this community!
"Our daughter began school at St. Mark’s in Fall 2020 as a two year old. She went from being a quiet observer in the classroom to now being a vocal and active participant. Her confidence and communication skills have grown tremendously in the past two years. We believe that her amazing teachers played a vital role in her development. In addition to providing her with a strong academic foundation, St. Mark’s has done a wonderful job at teaching her techniques to communicate her feelings and help manage her emotions. Our daughter wakes up every morning excited to go to school and see her teachers and friends."
