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.

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.

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.

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 : )

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.

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.

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!

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.
