Explore Our Campus
At Mark Day School, we believe a school should be more than a place to prepare - it should be a place to create, build relationships, make discoveries, and grow together as a community. This is what happens on our campus every day throughout our learning spaces. Along with spacious, sun-filled classrooms, students enjoy spaces where they can investigate with hands-on projects, dive into books, and spend time with friends.

The Heart of Our Campus
Our K-8 community encompasses faculty, staff, parents, grandparents, and friends, and we enjoy coming together in our communal spaces - the amphitheater and quad. These spaces allow every member of our community to get to know one another, build friendships, and feel connected to the school.
Design + Making
Before the maker movement took off, Assistant Head and Director of Educational Design + Innovation Bonnie Nishihara brought tinkering to Mark Day School in 2000. Inspired by the MIT Media Lab, which she studied as a student at Harvard's Graduate School of Education, our "cognitive playlands" offer students the opportunity to imagine, create, design, and invent.
Reading, Research, and Media
Throughout their years here, Mark Day students develop a deep love of learning and an eagerness to construct knowledge. Our Digital Media Lab and Learning Commons are spaces where students study media of all forms, both independently and in groups.
