    Good school but sometimes is not well organized. Excellent sports program after school. Parents need to involve more on school programs and also go to meetings.

    Christopher is truely a great school...especially for students who are learning English as a second langauge. Academic expectations are high but students are supported in many ways. Students are given many opportunities to succeed.

    I am overall happy with Christopher School. Both of my children have attended this school since pre-k. My oldest is now finishing his 6th grade year and from talking with him he has a very good experience at Christopher. I feel proud to tell people what school my kids go to. They have alot of programs that most people I speak to are envious of; L.E.A.R.N.S. is wonderful! And I do not know of any other school that offers a full year of pre-k without any charge most kids would not get the headstart they need without this program.
