St. Marcus School

St. Marcus School is the education ministry of St. Marcus Ministries. It serves approximately 700 students in K4 through 8th grade at its Main Campus on Palmer Street, and 220 students in K3 through 3rd grade at its North Campus on Richards Street.

St. Marcus’ vision is to be the best, urban Christian school in America. Through expansion, partnership and collaboration, St. Marcus is boldly committed to pursuing opportunities to serve as a catalyst for school reform and community-wide transformation. Working to ensure that every family has access to high-quality education in the city of Milwaukee.

Students, parents and teachers sign a covenant in which they commit to "do everything in their power to ensure academic success." St. Marcus believes there is no excuse for failure, and through Christ, nothing is impossible. The mantra I AM THIRD pervades the halls and classrooms. It summarizes the belief that students and teachers put the needs of others before their own, serving the Lord first, others second and themselves last.

St. Marcus believes students who enter the school can and will earn the right to post-secondary education. The school’s philosophical and practical approaches to education make this possible.

Rotary’s amazing capacity to bring people together

By Gabriel de Jesus Abade, former Rotary Youth Exchange Student

When I was 16, like most teenagers, I was focused on my own life. I hadn’t really thought about joining a service club or dedicating myself to helping others. But that changed when a high school friend began talking to me about Rotary, and its local and global actions. I was captivated and wanted to learn more. So I took my first steps in Rotary as a member of the Interact Club of Lauro de Freitas. Through the club, I was able to contribute in small ways to changing my community for the better.

It was also there that I first came into contact with the Rotary Youth Exchange program through exchange students who lived in my district. It aroused something inside of me, and I felt an urge to also go away and experience something new. I took part in a youth exchange to Freeport, Bahamas, in District 6990 and it changed my life in so many ways I can’t explain. It is still shaping many of my current decisions. A lot of what I do today is related to the change I went through nine years ago. The exchange opened my eyes to a world bigger than my own neighborhood, city, state, and country. And there was no turning back.

Her expeiences as an exchange student

Chiara Mudrochova, this year's Rotary Youth Exchange student, recently moved to Bob and Jan Blazich's home in Thiensville.  Unlike AFS where a student stays with one family for the entire school year, Rotary requires students to live with three families during their year abroad.  Chiara's first host was Sunrise member Will Jones and family, and her second host was a friend of the Schlageters, Marge Keehn.   Chiara, who is from Slovakia, will be the MT Sunrise Rotary Club speaker on Friday, March 30th.  She will share information that morning about her home country and her experiences here in the US.
