St. Christopher School is a Blue Ribbon School and my four kids have received the highest quality religious education that we always hoped for our kids. Kids deserve to be in a safe learning environment, being taught by high quality educators who care deeply about the kids, and that is what you get at St. Christopher School.
This was a great choice for our daughter this year. It was a pleasure listening to her in the evening and hear what she learned each day. With the time I volunteered and met all the teachers within the school, I am very pleased with them and look forward to sending her back there in the Fall.
My son was lucky and able to attend St. Christopher School for his kindergarten year. I feel he has received a great start in his education through his wonderful teachers and the staff members who have taught him so much. He is a very well rounded young man and I thank St. Christopher School for that. I loved to hear the staff greet him as he walked through the doors in the morning. It is a small "family-like" school where everyone knows each student and their families. Not only did my son have his friends in his class, but I was amazed at how many of the older students knew him and socialized with him. That says something about this school, it truly is an extension of our family. Not only did we have a great experience with our child as a student but also as parents.
St. Christopher is an amazing school. They take in our children and nurture them. I could not imagine I kids going to any other school.
This is our first year at St. Christopher's. My son is in Kindergarten. He gets a lot of one on one attention, which he needs to excel. He is already reading, which I was amazed since he had no interest a year ago. We are very pleased with St. Christopher's and all of the staff is very friendly. Dawn Voegele
I have 2 children that attend St. Christopher and I also attended St. Christopher. I am very impressed with the personal attention and well rounded education my daughters are receiving.
St. Christopher School is a wonderful place! It is small enough that every teacher knows every student by name. The student's are expected to excel academically, spiritually and socially. There is a wonderful diversity and each child is nurtured in an environment of discipline and structure.
I am a parent of a 5th and 6th grader at St. Christopher School. My oldest started in kindergarten in 2003 and over the last 7 years, I have been thoroughly pleased with all aspects of the school, including the staff, parents, quality of education, class size, religious foundation, opportunities for voluteering, and most importantly, the safety and well-being of my children while at school. My oldest spent the first 3 years at St. Chris dealing with heath issues that required the staff's attentiveness and compassion. They absolutely met my expectations and went out of their way to ensure that my child's needs were met, both physically and emotionally. For that, I will be forever grateful. St. Chris provides an academic environment that challenges the students at all levels, while maintaining and fostering a nurturing and spiritual atmosphere. The entire school community is an extension of our family!
The education my children have received at St. Christopher School deserves an excellent, 5 star rating! I am not only a parent, but a teacher at this wonderful school. I drive 30-35 minutes each day to bring my children with me because I believe in the quality academics and the Catholic Christian beliefs that are taught there. The environment is warm and welcoming, and we are very much a part of a school family! The parental involvement and support combined with a dedicated and superior faculty and staff make this school the best of the best. It is truly an outstanding place for your child to grow academically and spiritually! I am so proud to be able to give my own children the gift of a great elementary foundation that they will build on for the rest of their lives.
It jsut feels like family there, you get the sense that everyone there really cares about what they do and love what they do. I wouldn't consider sending my kids anywhere else.
St. Chris cares. The parish, administration, teachers, parents, and students care about the school and quality of eduction for our pre-K through 6th graders. One of the most telling facts is that each of my children is known by all of the school staff. A great result of this is the mission and Catholic values being instilled at all levels.
Wonderful, dedicated teachers and staff. Educational and spiritual atmosphere. You'll feel like family at St. Chris. We couldn't ask for anything more!
For us, it was never a question. Sending our boys to St. Christopher School provides the consistency of message we were looking for in passing our Catholic values to our children. They see their classmates at church, in Scouts, and in the neighborhood too. Mass participation gives students the opportunity to work on public speaking in addition to faith development. St. Christopher provides a nurturing environment of faith, as well as an excellent education. Active parent volunteers provide a community that builds lasting friendships and support with people who worship together, while making the school and its activities more affordable to a greater part of the parish. The parish and the school really are part of our extended family.
As a parent of a student at St. Chris I am very pleased with the educatin they have been exposed to. I fell there is a strong family involvment and the teachers provide a exceptional teaching method. The small classes account for a lot of that. I fell that that waht St. Chris has offered will allow my childern to excel into more as they continue their education.
As a parent and a teacher, I can t help but compare the quality of education my children have received and continue to receive at St. Christopher School with the school district I work in. Both have excellent curriculum, hard-working faculty and high expectations set for students. However on 9/11/2001 the difference became apparent. Parents at my school were scrambling to pick up their children and hurry home. My fears were eased when I called St. Christopher School to find that the students were gathered in the church to pray. The difference is Faith and St. Christopher School reinforces the importance of our Catholic Faith for their students very well.
St. Christopher exemplifies everything we want for our children in a Catholic school. The staff are incredibly caring and teaching methods are excellent. The commitment to high standards combined with a loving and caring environment is the ideal setting for our children.
My triplet boys have been at St Christopher since they were in kindergarten, they are now in 3rd grade. We took one semester off to experience the public school in our area, although a great, highly rated school system we could not wait to get them back to St. Christopher. We found that the family environment, the excellent teaching skills, and the love and support at St. Christopher could not be found elsewhere. The staff is exceptional and the curriculum is excellent.
St. Christopher is a place where are all welcome. The staff make it their job to know the students and provide the right learning environment for our children. Our students are taught by some of the best teachers around. We love St. Christopher!! High standards are set and achieved at St. Christopher!!
Having grown up in a small Indiana town, I worried that my children would miss out on all the benefits because of living in a large metropolitan area. St. Christopher offers the best of both worlds! The classes are small, the faculty know each child and the entire family very well, and academics is at the forefront. I am confident that St. Christopher School is going to help make my children as well rounded and confident as they can be.
My husband and I chose St. Christopher for our oldest daughter when she was in kindergarten many years ago. We sent our other children there as well and when our oldest was in 5th grade we were relocated overseas for 5 years! We kept in touch with the principal and teachers while we were gone because they weren't just our kids teachers they were family! When we moved back to the U.S. we came back to St. Christopher School even though we are closer to another catholic school! We love this school and feel like it's the best place for our children to learn and grow in their faith.
