    This school is a hidden gem I found this school 5 years ago by researching online and I'm glad I did. Student teacher ratio is great communication with teachers and principal is great everyone one of our teachers has something different to offer and they are all outstanding. The parent involvement lacks a bit it is usually the same people involved but with time things are changing for the good here. I would recommend this school.

    The school has a great student formation based on discipline respect and motivation. The moral values are part of the education emphasizing the importance of service. My wife and I we are really proud and happy to see how our kids are growing in a healthy environment and challenging boys and girls to be better in life and as students. Parents participation is a vital part of the boys and girls success. In my opinion St. Christopher it is a really great school that prepares the students to continue their education for success.

    St. Christopher's is an excellent school. Their delivery of education meets and exceeds CA standards. My daughter moved from a local "recognized" charter school where teachers are on FB during class discuss openly how it is ok to be single and pregnant and get drunk at school functions. St. Christopher's teachers are professional educated and experienced. They are role models for all the students (on and off campus). Supportive staff and the families. An excellent school for educating your child.

    Our school is small but that is part of the beauty. we are an extremely tight community from the administration to the parents all the way down to the students. i always appreciate how the older kids acknowledge my kids eventhough they are much younger. we have built some great relationships with other families throughout the years. most importantly we are extremely happy with the administration. unfortunately there is a negative. as far as parent involvement it seems like it is always the same families putting in work.

    I went to St. Christopher School as a child and feel awesome about sending my two sons here. The school is very strong on academics. St. Christopher is also helping my children grow into boys of strong character. It is important to me that the boys are educated in our Catholic faith and daily my sons offer me a "refresher course." I love the parents at St. Chris. In my sons' classes I have met a lot of quality parents who are dedicated to the school. They have a strong Parent Teacher Group who works hard to make sure our kids have fun events to participate in while also working hard to raise money for our school. Our teachers are amazing and highly qualified. If I am not mistaken almost all have their Master's degree. The principal is really sharp and easy to talk to. I just feel really good about the direction of our school. We are up for accreditation again this year and I know that we will show our "Goodness and Excellence through Service." Go Chargers )

    This school is a hidden gem! I attended many years ago and my children attend today. It is as wonderful now as it was then. It is a loving and caring atmosphere with people who care about the best interests of our children. The class sizes are small. The children get plenty of attention and are taught at or above grade level. I LOVE the smaller school size.

    Our school is a small school but extremely big in heart and love. We all work hard together to try achieve goals to keep our school running. Our teachers go above and beyond for the kids. I love this school and try and do what I can to help them succeed. The school has a great teacher to student ratio and the students truly benefit from this. It is a catholic school so not only do they benefit from academics but they also get the religious education also. We are trying to raise funds to help improve our athletic department and need funds to update our classroom tools and such. Thank you in advance for your help and time. We as a community appreciate it and myself as a parent.

    My son just completed his second year at St. Christopher School. We love this school. The teachers are great and they have a great art program. My son is very happy in this school. I highly recommend it!.

    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!!

    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!
