School Logo and Motto

The logo of St. Mark’s School is a lion with outstretched wings, a symbol of the undaunted spirit of St. Mark. The ribbon beneath the feet of the winged lion carries the Greek word, which translates as “straightway” in old English.

“Straightway” has a two-fold meaning. Character-wise, it means one should be honest, frank, and morally upright. It also means straight-away, doing at once what should be done now and not putting it off.

As students of St. Mark’s School, we should always be truthful to others, as well as be ready to take up responsibilities and act immediately.
