    My children went through this school from K-8 and we LOVE St. Mark. Such a dedicated and loving faculty great parents and beautiful facility. Best part is the small class sizes - they typically have 19-22 children per class so everyone gets a lot of attention - this was a real help to us when our kids hit learning bumps. Can't say enough good things about St. Mark - check it out!

    I have three children at St. Mark and we are incredibly happy with our experience. It has strong academics and a wonderful and supportive community of parents. My absolute favorite thing about the school though is the quality of the staff and teachers. These people love our kids and it shows in everything they do. My oldest went to kindergarten in a public school where I felt like the teacher didn't know much about her and she was falling through the cracks a bit because she was quiet and well-behaved. At St. Mark it has been a totally different experience. We couldn't ask for anything more in a school.

    Love St. Mark school. My daughter was at OES for a few years but it seems they only concentrate on AAP classes and the other classes suffer. Entering St. Mark from OES my daughter had some catching up to do as she was somewhat behind in Math. She is now up to speed thanks to the wonderful teachers at St. Mark. Keep up the good work. Kudos to the principal.

    Was contemplating taking my son out of public school but it was well worth it. The academics at St. Marks are so much more challenging than public school. The teachers make it fun and interesting for him. Believe me there are many awesome teachers at St. Marks but also a couple who should be thinking of retirement but overall the teachers are A+. They are supportive and are willing to stay after school if a student needs extra assistance.

    I highly recommend this school if you are looking for a religious based academic focused education. There is also a tremendous sense of community. We transferred from the public school system and have not looked back once (even when we're writing the tuition checks). The administration and teachers are very focused on the students and teaching them not only academic but life skills. Your child will learn how to make good decisions. The other parents are so supportive. The best thing about St. Mark is that it's not "high competitive" -- everyone (administration parents teachers other children) wants every individual child to reach their full potential. It's a wonderful environment for children. I can't recommend it highly enough. It's also a great school if you're a working there's a before and after school program.

    Its goal to develop character. The friendly character of everyone you meet there.

    We've been there since the school began 7 years ago and have nothing but good things to say about it. The teachers are the most dedicated group imaginable. Teachers focus on setting high standards and making sure each child reaches his/her potential. My children have blossomed academically and spiritually in this relatively small school environment (around 20 in their classes). They have learned more than academics; they have also learned to respect others and concern for the world around them.

    Fantastic loving school environment. Teachers are involved and your child will never be forgotten. Everyone knows everyone. Lots of social opportunites for both parents and children. Class is good and between 20-24 (max) per class. Both K and 1st grade have full time aids in the classroom.

    My daughter has attended school there since it opened. It offers a structured solid caring Catholic-based education in a nurturing environment. The school is like a small village and every teacher and student knows and takes care of each other. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone particularly if your child needs fully engaged teachers and administrators. The only downside is the few opportunities for enrichment for gifted children and the snotty elitist attitude of most of the parents. If you are merely middle-classed or are single-parenting you will feel left out.
