Our school is named after St. Mark, one of the four evangelists, who was a contemporary of St. Peter and St. Paul. Mark and Barnabas preached the good news in Cyprus. The school and community celebrate his feast day on April 25th, our special day.
St. Mark Catholic School is currently more than 40 years old, having been built in 1957.
There has always been a close association between St. Mark School and St. Mark Church as the pastors have all been eager to work with the school. The close proximity of both buildings helps in this regard.
The current population is predominantly of Polish extraction, but many other nationalities are currently represented. St. Mark's population reflects a normal urban mix for the Toronto area.

The Queensway–Humber Bay, known officially as Stonegate-Queensway, is located in the south-east of the former City of Etobicoke. Mimico Creek runs through the neighbourhood. This community includes 1950s era low-rise apartment buildings and an old turn-of-the century market garden community which was absorbed by the city as it grew. The bulk of the houses in The Queensway are two bedroom brick bungalows as well as storey-and-a-half homes constructed in the 1940s and 1950s. These buildings sit on good size lots and include private driveways and garages.View Neighbourhood
