    St. Chris is a great school. Our son has been here for 7 years. This already very good school has continued to improve during our stay here. I say 'our' because we are a community. The teachers are highly educated and dedicated to our children. They are committed to both our students academic and Christian spiritual advancement. We have a very active PTG with dedicated parents. We have seen continuous advancement in the STEM curriculum (science tech math) since our son has been here. We will be sad in 2014 that he will be graduating but we are comfortable in knowing that he has received both a strong academic and a moral foundation to pursue his future goals. We got a new principal last year who has a positive learning attitude. We are so happy with her. With her energy and ideas we see only good things for St. Chris future. We are committed to St. Chris and even though our child is moving on we will continue to actively support the school in the future. Go Chargers!!

    Excellent school and staff. My daughter switched over from "high scoring" district school. The change was the best decision. Discovered the value of a private Catholic education. Discovered the difference between her previous school which only taught to the state test and St. Christopher's who provides a well rounded and excellent academic program.

    My son is so happy at St. Christopher's and so am I! This is his first year entering into Kinder. We have been part of the parish for over 7 years; I've always loved the Parish and I couldn't be happier with the school. The Principal is very friendly and down-to-earth and has a true interest in the students. His teachers are exceptional and the students in his class get along very well. I've had an opportunity to volunteer and join them on their first field trip where I was able to see first hand their interaction with eachother. I was very impressed with how well they all get along. I feel truly belssed to be part of such a great school!

    My child is graduating this year. Our experience was a positive one and I would recommend St.Chris to anyone. He is well prepared for High School ...

    This is my daughters first year at St. Christopher and she loves her school. She had an extremely wonderful teacher that was always going beyond what is expected of a teacher. Academics are highly valued and the new principal is extraordinary. Volunteers are always welcomed like in any other private school. I am very pleased with St. Christopher School and would highly recommend it to any parent who values a Catholic education....

    I think this is a good school. If I were to look at it from my child's view I think it is great. He is never complaining about bad teaching mean classmates ect... He happens to be an honor student am I am proud of him. I think others don't like this school because of its 'outside' view. But remeber... It's your children who are going there not you. It isn't expensive either. St. Christopher is one of the best schools ever. That actually dosn;t pressure the children that they go 'nuts'. Let them enjoy their life. And by the way... St. Chris is a hands on school. But I know St. Chris has the potential.. It has the patience... But most of all it has the love!

    I think this is a great school. I grew up in the St. Christopher community. The teaches are great and they have a lot of great activities planned to make sure we have the best hands on school adventure. The teachers hospitality is what I miss the most. Everyone is kind and almost everyone will know you there.. Though it is a small communtiy school I think the children who are to study there will get the best out of school. I found it like a home away from home. It is the highlight of my childhood and I am sure when I am a parent I will enroll my childrn there. new renovations are being done and I am sure in means time this would be a vfery good school.

    St. Christopher is a wonderful school so far we're very pleased with the quality of the academic programs. Although our child is going to 1st. grade we do intend to keep him there. So far the Kindergarten teacher is who has set the standard. I am convicted that if the rest of the staff is as efficient as Ms. Lee our child is in the best teaching hands. They do host an enrichment program which lacks structure but is fun for the kids and convenient for the parents. This coming year we're looking forward to having who seems to be an outstanding principal. Parent involvement is limited to PTG who are very possessive of their roles and they do not allow 'outsiders'. Something else that we are looking forward to improvement with the addition of the new principal. With that said St. Chris is heading into the right direction.
