Welcome! As you search for the school that will be the right match for your child and family, we invite you to learn more about our community. We hope you will visit so you can see firsthand what makes this K-8 school a vibrant place for children to learn and grow.
Every aspect of our school community is mission-driven and guided by the Seven Pillars of Character: caring, courage, citizenship, respect, responsibility, honesty, and fairness. Beyond our strong academic program, Mark Day School strives to create an inclusive and engaging environment with a strong faculty who fosters critical thinking and responsible world citizenship.
We invite you to explore how our four literacies--global and cross-cultural, media and informational, ecological, and social-emotional and ethical--are woven through the curriculum at every level. Ask about our partnerships with schools in Beijing, Costa Rica, and South Africa. Learn about our one-to-one laptop and iPad programs and talk to our students about their media literacy projects. Explore our school garden and learn about how sustainability initiatives permeate the school. Discuss stereotypes and gender roles with our 5th graders, and ask kindergarteners what they have in their social-emotional "toolboxes."
Visit us and see our community in action! A typical visit includes a greeting from Head of School Joe Harvey, a tour of the campus, classroom visits, and a Q&A session with 8th graders and faculty members. Meet with students, parents, faculty, and administrators--they are our best ambassadors!
Throughout your admissions journey, we hope you will contact us with questions. We look forward to meeting you.
