Parent Testimonials

We are extremely grateful to have online school at this time and are so impressed by everyone’s efforts. We are blessed to have you at the helm and a staff that is second to none. But moreover people who truly care about the students and parents.

We certainly appreciate all of the preparation and work all of the teachers have put into the online learning. I can definitively say that our kids are more supported and better prepared than their peers in other schools.  When so much is going on in our lives with balancing work, school, and home life, it’s great to have a road map giving us direction with our children’s learning. Once again, St. Mark’s rocks!

I have to say I have been so impressed with the transition from school to home and the in-home schooling efforts by our teachers. It is certainly uncharted waters by all and outside of everyone’s comfort zones, and yours and the teachers’ bravery and preparation have been so reassuring to me and my children.

We chose ST. MARK for a number of reasons, including academic excellence and parental involvement, but the primary factor in our decision really came down to the quality of the staff and teachers. From the principal to the teachers to the custodians, every employee is a kind, loving person who wants only the best for our children in every facet of their lives. In addition to ensuring that our kids are academically prepared, ST. MARK ensures that our kids are taught daily to be caring and generous people. We could not ask for anything more in a school.

ST. MARK School gave our children a very strong academic foundation. They were so well-prepared for high school. But more importantly, our children learned strong values and morals that have sustained them well during the challenging teenage years.

When we ask them what they like most about ST. MARK, our children always talk about their teachers and how much they truly care about their students. This warm environment helps our children love learning. This is very important to our family, and we are happy that such a school exists!

We absolutely love the Extended Day Care program (EDC). I credit the program with making it so easy for our daughter to settle in last year. It truly is like a family—the director’s love for the children is inspiring. Watching the older children watch over the younger ones, helping them with homework and playing with them, truly made me happy that my daughter has such good role models to emulate. We also loved her teachers who made us feel so welcome. The computer teacher turned Wednesdays into our daughter’s favorite day of the week!

I looked carefully at the many school options available in this area, but the main reason I chose ST. MARK was because, while my husband was deployed at the time, I felt that my children needed extra “TLC”. The ST. MARK community provided this for all of us, even sending care packages to my husband while he was overseas.

When we toured the school, it was obvious that the children were learning and happy and that the teachers were happy to be there. This made quite an impression on us. Our dinner-table discussions always center around what happened at school, and we hear such great details about how creative and fun the teachers are. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to send our sons to ST. MARK School.
