We feel pride in the fact that St. Marks Parish School is committed to educating the “whole” child. Our children are continually challenged to push themselves to their highest academic potential. Their spiritual needs are met not solely through classroom learning, but through daily prayer and opportunities to actively participate in class led masses. The required community service expectations open up our children’s minds and hearts at an early age to the benefits of stewardship toward the Church and world community. We can’t imagine receiving a more well rounded education for our children anywhere else.

I think what makes St. Mark’s school special is we get to talk about Jesus. I am very happy my parents sent me to this school. The teachers are very nice. There is also a reason why this school is special, we get to do religion and learn about God every day. You should try St. Mark’s School.

Thanks to my experience at St. Mark’s, my freshman year at Bishop Kelly was a breeze. Additionally, St. Mark’s had me prepared for my time at Gonzaga to get my Special Education Degree and at University of Portland for my Masters in Education.

My main goal for my children as a parent: I want them to live the life God intended them to lead. I want them to reach out to others, to treat each other with kindness, and to keep God present in their lives throughout the day. Our faith begins at home, but what better place to send them during the day to continue to learn and to practice their Catholic faith with fellow peers and staff of St. Mark’s School. It’s important to me that they have a religious education and to also have academic success and I feel they receive this by being a part of St. Mark’s School.
