The St. Mark's Difference

Emphasis on Creativity

Our family has been at St. Mark’s Episcopal School for 4 years and we continue to be thrilled with our experience as members of the St. Mark's community. We are confident that our daughter is receiving a high quality education with emphasis on independent work and creativity. The school incorporates technology into practical projects even for the youngest ages. When our daughter is at school she feels comfortable and at ease. Children spend so much time at school that it should feel like a second home. We whole-heartedly recommend St. Mark's Episcopal School to our friends and we encourage everyone to take a closer look.

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 Great Size School

Our family was used to smaller towns, and we were a bit intimidated moving into Houston. St. Mark's is a high class, inner city school with the family, caring feel of a small town. Only two classes per grade, compared to what the even local great public schools can offer (I believe 250 kindergarteners as an example), makes it a great choice for parents who want to make sure a school knows each child and their individual strengths and needs. We didn't know many people moving here, but now we have an amazing school family in St. Mark's.
