    My son is finishing up his second year at Christ the King and we couldn't be more pleased. I feel that the it's very safe and the education is excellent. He has Spanish class music and computer time.

    I used to be very happy with this school however the class size are too big. Teachers do not check homework due to class size teachers do not spend quality time with each student.

    CTK is a great school! The teachers principal and priests are welcoming and helpful. the children learn and engage in fun hands-on activities. I highly recommend the school.

    I'm a parent of a 4th grader and I am EXTREMELY disappointed in this so called catholic school! There is no discipline at this school what so ever! There is a fight just about every day and nothing is done about it and the parents are not notified. The kids that are starting the fights are still there and it seems the school is about the money and not the safety of the children!

    I'm very happy and pleased with how much my daughter has learned and grown in such a short time. I couldn't be anymore proud of the hard work shes done and anymore grateful to Ms.Calciano and CTK staff for making this a wonderful experience for my daughter.

    Christ the King is a wonderful school. Sister Trudy and staff truly love what they're doing. I especially love the fact it is a small school community. I would highly recommend Christ the King.

    Christ the King is a wondeful school. It maybe small but it is excellent. I would chose this school over many.

    The school teachers are very educated and patient with the students. They have constant communication with the students and parents. My niece loves school and is very active in the extra curricular afterschool programs. We enjoy her continued progress at school.

    I moved here 2 years ago - the school and church community are wonderful. The principal teachers and school staff are very helpful and caring.

    I think that the teachers and Sr. Trudy try their hardest to make the experience at Christ the King a great one. I am looking forward to having my children go there.

    The principle was very nice as were the teachers. The classes are small enough for everyone to know eachother. And its very community oriented.
