The communication via teachers and parents is tremendous. Between the children using a "planner" to track their homework and tests to teachers posting information on their personal website page, I don't know how homework could be missed. I've found if the amount of homework isn't working for my child, we've been able to work with the teacher to make improvements.
I have three children who attend the school and we've been involved for 6 years. Christ the King Catholic School has lived up to all of the needs and interests we were looking for in a school. Teachers, academics, programming and facilities are superb, but the community of school staff and parents are genuine, caring for others and all work together to make the experience even more valuable. I'm still amazed at the degree of parental involvement and I believe that's what makes it shine above other schools. Everybody knows each other, look out for each other & their children and there is a great sense of a genuine community. I don't know how a school or parish could possibly more welcoming!
Christ the King was a wonderful place for our family to land when we moved to a new side of town. Teachers and administrators are committed to providing an outstanding education for all children. We chose Christ the King because it felt extremely welcoming the moment we walked in the door for a tour. The student body is more diverse than many other north side Catholic schools. We appreciate that there are families from different faith and ethnic backgrounds. All socioeconomic groups are represented, yet everyone is down to earth, friendly and welcoming. The kids at Christ the King are kind to one another. They are learning to become young men and women for others as they focus on volunteer work and service to the community. The academics are outstanding. While we aren't a family that focuses much on test scores, we recognize that they are a valuable tool in assessing the overall quality of a school. Christ the King is an A-rated and Family Friendly School. No other Catholic school in the city has been granted both distinctions. Students seem to receive the right amount of homework to master the skills being taught in the classroom. Additionally, the faith component at Christ the King builds character, leadership, love and kindness in each student, regardless of religious affiliation. These factors have made it the perfect school for our family.
We moved our kids to Christ the King just last year. It has been a great transition academically and socially. We are so pleased with the academics and the quality of the student body. CKS families are incredibly friendly and we're just so glad we crossed paths with this great school. Highly recommended!
The teachers in K-5 are superb! They are caring and extremely dedicated to their students. They have high expectations but differentiate to meet every student's needs. There have been several new teachers at the middle school level over the last few years. The math teacher is highly effective!!! He knows how to prepare students for high school! The religion teacher is such a fine man and an excellent role model. The social studies teacher is also a super teacher. The other middle school teachers are new. They are young and eager! We have been pleased with them thus far.
The administrators are fairly new. This is their second year as administrators at CTK. They are doing an amazing job! The principal, Mr. Seib is a humble man who leads by example. He is a fine example of a man showing kindness, tolerance, innovative leadership, a family first attitude, and a goal to protect others and our environment. The vice principal, Mrs. W, is a dynamic young lady who inspires others to be at their best! She establishes superb rapport with the students and disciplines with dignity when necessary. I believe our new school leaders are going to make a great school even more phenomenal!
