St. Mark’s offers small class sizes, interactive classroom environments, diverse service opportunities, a nurturing spiritual component and an active Parent Association.


Q: What is your favorite thing about St. Mark’s?

We love the community neighborhood feel at St. Mark’s and the caring teachers who go the extra distance in meeting the needs of St. Mark’s students.


Q: What type of impact has the school had on your son?

Grant’s journey from PK-4 to 8th grade has presented him with many opportunities to learn and excel in the classroom, on the playing field and within the church. A great example of this is the amount of public speaking he has taken part in while enrolled at St. Mark’s. It began in Kindergarten and by 3rd grade, he was very comfortable speaking in front of not only his peers, but adults as well.


Q: Why do you donate to (and actively lead) the Annual Fund?

We want to continue to see the school grow, flourish and provide amazing educational and extracurricular opportunities for all the students.


Q: What would you want prospective families to know about the school?

St. Mark’s provides many diverse and impactful educational opportunities that encourage children to succeed and thrive both at school and in the real world. We’re happy our children spent their formative years in the caring community of St. Mark’s and feel confident they’ll continue to succeed as they move onto High School.
