We are honored that you are considering St. Mark's for your child's education. At St. Mark's you'll find a welcoming community that cherishes and reveres each child. We are focused on meeting the needs of each student from the very first day. Attracting a culturally diverse body of exceptional learners is at the very core of our Episcopal Identity. We look for the unique potential in each child and look forward to providing the opportunities for students to discover their callings.
The St. Mark's Mission
The community of St. Mark's Episcopal School celebrates the uniqueness of each child. We are stewards of our students' intellectual curiosity, faith, and passion for discovery. We cultivate joy, playfulness, and growth in a child-centered environment.
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 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!
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.
