  • Great school, great staff, strong sense of community! This school has become a strong academic environment that fosters inclusive and catholic values. Great programs for the kids, no complaints. I'm confused about the earliest review. My guess? One of the disgruntled teachers from the clean-up of bad staff a few years ago by the former principal. This is really a wonderful school.

  • I am not sure what the individual listed below was thinking when the review was written. Saint Mark School offers a secure learning environment. The children receive a strong, balanced , traditional education. In addition, the children are exposed to arts, music, sports, and community outreach. The high school placement of Saint Mark School graduates is excellent. Children are accepted into established private , religious, and advanced programs in the local public high schools. The sports program offers children who are sports oriented a competitive venue. It also offers children who have never been exposed to team sports to safely participate and learn to succeed without fear of failure. Saint Mark School is the best kept secret on the west side of Los Angeles.

  • St. Mark is such a wonderful and safe environment for my kids. After receiving a handful of our alimni, one high school principal actually came to visit our school saying how the St. Mark graduates are some of the most truly Christian students he had ever met.
    Thank you St. Mark for being our family and our school home.

  • What can be said about this school other than "the road to hell is paved with good intentions."? I am an ex-pupil of this school... I have no fond memory of this school. The school itself is run by a group of cliquish parents and teachers that go out of their way to punish individualism. The school itself puts on a nice front and is pretty to look at but is in fact rotten to the core. Do not send your child here. There are many other better schools ... Be warned. After years of not only myself but my sister having her share of St. Mark torment, my parents were able to realize what this school was about and are actually still apologizing to me to this very day.
