6th-8th Grade

St. Mark’s Middle School provides students with nurturing experiences and relationships in strong academic classroom settings to gently guide them from the structured Lower School environment to the responsibilities encountered in Middle School.

Middle School is an important transitional period in the lives of our children, and we are well-equipped to handle all aspects of our students’ development—academic, athletic, personal, social, and spiritual. With the full rotation of classes and individual subject areas, each grade level in Middle School provides an opportunity for students to assume responsibility for themselves in their academic surroundings.

Our graduates are armed with an academic base that is second to none, and they are confident that they can compete and triumph in any situation. The challenging curriculum prepares students for high school and beyond, whether preparing to attend the private Loyola College Prep; any of the magnet programs at Caddo Magnet, C. E. Byrd, or Captain Shreve High School; or a boarding school outside of the Shreveport area.
