Cristo Rey High School, is the school that other schools should model. Students, required to work weekly to gain the necessary skills and experience to be self-sufficient, is a curricula model to replicate. While the expectations of the school administrators are high for their students, in the corporate world as it relates to employment, an employer's expectations are higher as well as any college, university or post-secondary learning institute. Overall, the curriculum design prepares students, our community and nations future leaders to be self-sufficient. Keep up the good work staff members. Parents, be patient with the staff and get INVOLVED and stay fully ENGAGED without wavering. Together, your teen, teachers, administrative staff, other community adults and you, will have a student, who will be more focused on purposely pursuing their future career to be self-sufficient.

This school trys to take your money in almost every single way and does not repay when have to and they fail to live up to their promises of a "working education". And if a student fails to live up to their very high standards, their kicked out without a explanation

students are challenged in all classes and this school requires more credit hours than most high schools so that the students can compete when it comes to getting into the right college.

I like the family school environment, but I do get frustrated because I don't know how my child is doing until it is almost to late to reverse the low grades. The school feels that each student is responsible for their own grade, but I believe some children need to be kept on track by their parents. To graduate or not graduate is not an option,

My student loves this school. She feel challenged and enjoys that the rules and regulations are strictly followed. She sought this school herself when she found her old high school was not meeting the challenge she wanted. The staff is caring and lets you know what is expected. They encourage the student to flourish and branch out.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
