A MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL CLEMENS
Dear Prospective Parents and Families,
Welcome to St. Mark School! I am very pleased that you are considering St. Mark as a school for your child. St. Mark School has continued to provide a quality education to all students while preparing for academic success and positive social growth for the past 96 years. Buffalo Business First, 2016 ranked St. Mark School as the fourth highest achieving elementary school and third highest achieving middle school in the City of Buffalo. Our students move on to attend the top high schools in WNY.
Students at St. Mark School are provided with a caring and nurturing educational environment that focuses on the education of the whole child. Classes are led by highly qualified teachers who set expectations high and meet the needs of all students. Every student receives instruction in Music, Art, Physical Education and Technology. Additional course offerings include Algebra I, Drama, Gifted & Talented and Spanish. To enhance the educational experience, there are Enrichment Programs and STREAM clubs offered after school. St. Mark School's music program offers instrumental lessons, coinciding with school band and orchestra. Our sports program is one of the best in the area with over 24 different teams playing a variety of sports at all levels. We are the current home of the Diocesan Varsity Baseball Championship Trophy after a victorious 2016 season.
Parents are an integral part of our school's success. We have a very active Home School Association that strongly supports the school staff and students. This parent group works actively to fundraise and provide our school with additional means for continuous improvements in areas such as technology and the arts. Parents are strongly encrouaged to be part of their child's educational experience and there are many opportunities throughout the school year for parents to participate in school-based activities.
Thank you for considering St. Mark School and I look forward to working together to provide a quality education for your children.
Mr. Robert Clemens, Principal
