I have sent several children through cks and felt that they were very poorly prepared for the rigors of high school, both public and private. The math and science programs are severely lacking. Study skills and habits are not taught. I was very disappointed in all aspects of the school. There were a few quality teachers there but most have left, Now mostly new and inexperienced teachers using the same worn out curriculum that has been used for the last 15 years. Unfortunately, a complete waste of money!!
I currently have two children at Christ the King, both of my children struggled a bit with reading when entering. The teachers at Christ the King were able to identify both of my children's strengths and weaknesses very early in the school year. My children were able to get the correct help and assistance they needed and were right in line with other students and within just a few months. My children have gained so much more than reading and math skills, they have gained confidence in themselves. I am so happy with our decision to choose Christ the King...my kids are happy and so am I! :)
I have two children who attend the school and we've been involved for 3 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!
we enrolled our daughter to repeat the fourth grade due to dyslexia that had made her prior two school years less than rewarding. She is a bright child and had matriculated by passing the ISTEP tests each year but we felt the increasing struggle as a family without true appreciation, guidance or support for our challenges to help her to be successful from prior institutions. That decision was in August 2010 and our child is starting to blossom under the caring and attention of the teachers, staff and other parents with whom she has contact through her classmates. Each year of her enrolement has been a series of successes for her personally and for us as a family. Each year we receive a level of comprehension and appreciation by her teachers regarding her specific challenges without inculcating a bias or stigma that could stifle her development. Our child still has some work to do but we wholeheartedly and unabashedly recommend the principal, staff and environment of Chrst The King School (Indianapolis) as a stellar place for elementary education and a place where "No child left behind" isn't just a monicker but a cultural expression of their Christian walk.

Christ the King is a very unpretentious Catholic school. The school is blessed with a very loving and supportive atmosphere of both it's students and parents. Non-Catholics feel welcome. Students come to our school from other Catholic schools in the area because they know they will be welcome with open arms and be given a solid education. If there is a 'clique' in the school, I must not be in it, because I have yet to experience that type of thing at Christ the King. We are beginning our 7th year as a Christ the King family.
Our mission is to inspire and support families to champion their children's education - at
