St Mark's School Of Texas Ratings & Reviews

May 10, 2017 Submitted by a parent
While there no such thing as the perfect school, St Marks is definitely the best we have seen and have had children attend Good Shepherd (also a solid lower school), Parish(terrible) and Greenhill. Its steeped in traditions, which are really cool (like the Pecos camping trip where they go out for a week in the wilderness). We could see the difference in our son almost immediately when he transferred to St Marks. He is highly engaged and well-prepared for college. Students: This is a diverse school so if you want your child exposed to many different cultures, its a great place for you. Our son has friends from India, China, Europe and Latin America, which has helped him understand we live in a connected world. The children are from all income levels with one thing in common, intelligence. Teachers: There are many changes happening right now with the new Head of School, he is upgrading the teacher base, which takes time. Generally, the teachers are very good with a few a) older ones who need to retire b) young ones who are not quite ready and make some mistakes and c) ones that only care about the students that are in the club...i.e. math. Overall, we have been pleased with the moves that David has made.Campus: Its probably the most beautiful campus in Dallas. Greenhill and Cistercian are also nice. The classrooms are pretty good, but need some uprades. The food is absolutely awful and you have to pay for it even if you child doesn't eat it. Technology: The Achilles Heel of St Marks, the school is woefully behind in terms of adopting new technology. No ipads or ebooks yet. They don't even offer coding classes until 10th grade and have few options. The computer lab is behind the times badly. They are building a new science wing, which will be amazing. Sports: Both broad offering and good opportunities for the boys to try many different sports. Our son did fencing and water polo as examples. Good facilities as well. There is a good reason why its ranked the #8 private school in the country.

A stunningly beautiful campus and excellent arts and language programs. The PE department is wonderful and there are some amazing teachers in the school. However, the STEM curriculum in the Lower School is frankly disappointing, the focus just is not on math and science which is very surprising. No possibilities to accelerate or differentiate for the young hungry high ability students, a cookie cutter approach. The school has wonderful traditions, but at the same time too little willingness to change some outdated practices, and to continue to be the best, a school needs to evolve and welcome change. No parental feedback channels available. A great school, but could be even better.

Pretention and elitism are not synonymous with intelligence and success. While the school has great potential they need to be less concerned with a who's who roster and more concerned with the type of boys they admit.

St. Mark's is, without a doubt, not only the best college preparatory school in the Dallas metro area, but also one of the best in the country, as indicated by a number of sources. We switched our son from one of the star public elementary schools in the Dallas area to St. Mark's, so that he can be fully challenged in all areas, and the results exceeded our expectations. We saw a significant increase in challenge and performance levels in all academic and sports areas at St. Mark's. We definitely recommend this school to anybody who has a gifted, high-achieving son and is looking to fully challenge him.

The best education available in our area for boys. I fully expect that the reviews on here talking about arrogance, etc are written by people whose boys were not admitted. It is very difficult to gain admission. The student must be at the very top of his academic group. These boys are more prepared for college than anywhere else in my opinion.
