School Information
"St. Mark’s aims to prepare young men to assume leadership and responsibility in a competitive and changing world. To this end, the School professes and upholds certain values. These values include the discipline of postponing immediate gratification in the interest of earning eventual, hard-won satisfaction; the responsibility of defending one’s own ideas, of respecting the views of others, and of accepting the consequences for one’s own actions; and an appreciation for the lively connection between knowledge and responsibility and the obligation to serve." The school enrolls 903 students, has an 8:1 student-teacher ratio, and offers many courses, including 22 AP courses.

General Information
St. Mark's School Of Texas has not implemented anti-racism policies at the school level. Two student groups, the Civil Rights Club and a student-run magazine, have facilitated dialogue on race, which we cannot confirm to be anti-racism or critical race theory.
