The Campus as a Classroom: 3rd Graders Study Local Monarchs

For Garden Teacher and Tinkerer David St. Martin, ecoliteracy is not just part of the curriculum—it’s a passion that he loves to share with students. Learning about and caring for our natural world has been a means of connecting with students on a deeper level.

Mark Day School's Cross-Disciplinary Literacies: Where Are We Now?

For decades, we have recognized that foundational skills and competencies in traditional disciplines alone are not enough to educate today's students to thrive in the current century. We developed four cross-disciplinary literacies that are interwoven across grades and subjects to equip students with the skills and knowledge they need to navigate through life.

Learning and Growing in the Great Outdoors

For grades 3-8, outdoor education gives students the opportunity to explore the natural world during unique and rewarding field experiences. Throughout the pandemic and as we see many aspects of pre-pandemic life return more recently, we have always been committed to making these experiences possible.

Philanthropy at Mark Day School

From the school’s founding in 1980, philanthropy has been part of the fabric of Mark Day School. Philanthropy is an important element of every great school and provides the opportunity to grow, expand, and improve—in ways that impact us in the short- and long-term.
