You must be in with the in crowd of parent/teacher cliques in order for your child and you to benifit from Christinas. It is more of a way for neighborhood parents to gloat on a sub-par neighborhood education that is religious. There are too many other viable options in the Mt. Greenwood area to dump money into this bottomless pit.
My daughter went there for several years. She did well there and always made honor roll. If my child needed help there was support and she received it. I was single parent and never received any bad comments. I took my daughter out of St. Benedict's because they were letting in non Catholic students who paid the same tuition as I . There should be two separate fees for Catholics and Non Catholics. The other non Catholic received financial aide etc. St. Christina has a great sport program and a excellent science lab. Teachers do care and you have to be involved.
My child goes there now and will not be returning next year. They want your money. Period. It's not fundraising..its basically begging. Every single week. Like other reviewers said, there is basically no parent-teacher communication. It's like they don't want you to know what's going on. There are no language programs, no arts programs, and I'm pretty sure their math is sub-par. If you want your child to have a religious education, fine send them to this private school. If you have been brainwashed into thinking the local public school is going to destroy your child, think again. They want x amount of money to sit in church and watch tv all day....no thanks.
my kids have been going to this school since pre-school and it shows in the grades they get.my wife works and no one looks down at her because she is not a stay at home mom! i choose to send my kids to this school instead of having a second home or a big suv.again my kids are A and B plus students this is a great school,you cant redo an education!
I was very happy with my son's experience at St.Christina. He received a wonderful academic as well as religious education. His religious education was presented to him in a way that made sense. It was much better than I could have done on my own. Keep up the great work!
I think St. Christina is a great school. They have caring and competant teachers. Students that attend there can be assured that they will be able to compete with other schools in the area. Look at the honor rolls of the High Schools. Where did they attend for grammar school? St. Christina, that's where. Good job to faculty and staff.
