We started at Saint Mark’s in 2010, our oldest was then four and we were looking at local preschools. On our tour, we saw first-hand how supportive, safe, and comfortable the students felt. Our son was very shy and anxious, and we were looking for the perfect balance between a nurturing and challenging environment. We found that here at Saint Mark’s. We were told by many parents and staff how the students here go from quiet shy kids to confident leaders by junior high. Fast forward to the present, he is different, he is better — more confident, cheerful, independent, and relaxed. He now speaks in front of the entire student body in Chapel, is a reading buddy to younger students, and is friends with everyone. All the things we were told many years ago are happening before our eyes. We could not be happier at their development academically and socially. We see progress in their minds, manners and knowledge. They are not just test scores, character is what counts. Saint Mark’s is the total package with its competitive core curriculum, small class sizes, team sports, a wide selection of extra-curricular activities and a nurturing faculty.
We would like to especially thank the staff for encouraging, supporting and inspiring the boys. They have given them guidance and challenged them within a motivating environment. Thank you, Saint Mark’s, for being more than just a school, you are family.
