Map of Christopher Elementary School address.
February 05, 2014
My kids attended Christopher Elementary and we transferred to Parkview Elementary in December of this past year. By the second day both teachers came to me saying my kids were way behind. This school is failing to keep up with the District and further from the standard. The amount of work to catch up has been tremendous and i wonder how this can even be called a school. Parents are obviously not involved with their kids and we had to transfer because it was apparent they failed to teach them those values on top of a lice breakout every other month. This schools needs to focus on getting the parents involved as will as focus on getting the kids caught up.

This school has shown some improvement however the parent involvement is minimal. The staff have minimal impact on addressing serious situations. There is poor fundamental values and a lot of these kids are reflecting it. There is no real structure, the kids are running the school more than the staff. The school lacks the ability to control the bullying of students and seem to only address one side of the situation not both.

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.
