A School Expert’s Review of St. Mark’s School

via St. Mark's School

St. Mark’s School students graduate well prepared for college.

Global citizenship is a part of each student’s St. Mark’s experience; the program teaches students the values of leadership and service as well as creative, analytic, and cooperative work, and exploring the larger world.

The program includes domestic and international service learning and students are encouraged to reflect on ‘what it means to be a global citizen?’

The classical curriculum includes diverse offerings, collaborative learning, and a spiritual center. St. Mark’s has a 2-semester religion requirement all of which pushes student to explore the world beyond their campus in Southborough, MA. St. Mark’s is also a member school of School Year Abroad (SYA) giving St. Mark’s students study aboraod options.

St. Mark’s is building a new STEM Center for innovation in teaching and learning that will open in 2015. The school has an outstanding Robotics program that I would think every student would want to be a part of. In the arts, the visual and performing arts (especially music and voice) are strong.

The greater St. Mark’s community sits down for two lunches weekly and one dinner each month.

The campus and physical plant are absolutely beautiful.
