CTK is the best Catholic school in the Omaha area. We considered only AdvancEd accredited Catholic schools of which there were only 4 in Omaha and this was by far, the best school. I felt like the school had high standards academically and socially, down to uniform wear and personal development, and that's what I wanted from a private school. The principal is awesome, caring, welcoming and committed; teachers are excellent and caring and most have advanced degrees; the kids who attend CTK are truly wonderful kids...probably because they come very good families, and I feel very comfortable having my sweet child growing up with these kids. We are thrilled we chose CTK and look forward to all our children attending this wonderful K-8 school with an amazing principal, teachers and students. Couldn't be happier with Christ the King.

Our child attends Christ the King and we couldn't be happier! Teachers and Principal are very caring and involved, high level of communication. Our child is very happy as well. The whole school and Parish community are so welcoming and friendly. We highly recommend this school.

Wonderful Catholic school with strong academics lead by an excellent principal and outstanding teachers who love teaching. Small welcoming parish community of strong faithful leaders committed to educating kids to know and love their Catholic faith and live it.

This is the BEST Catholic school in the Omaha area, hands down! Academics are a priority and have been for a long time. They've been AdvancEd accredited and have been since 1993. Not many schools can say that. They also hold higher standards in other areas, like personal development, personal standards, parent involvement and other areas. I researched around before selecting CTK and I'm thrilled to send my kids here where there are less than 20 kids in each class. My children are well ahead academically, have great friends and love to go to school. And I love that they are doing so well and that they are happy!

We transferred our children to this school, and it was the best decision we could have made, hands down. The principal is EXCELLENT! He truly cares about the kids, staff and curriculum. He always has a smile on his face and is available whenever you need him. CTK has small classrooms, high academic standards and plenty of activities. I feel like my children are safe, happy and challenged. Best yet, the CTK community is open and welcoming. I have never met a nicer group of parents or students. I highly recommend this school - it is one of the best kept secrets in Omaha.

I was really surprised to see that the overall parent rating was so low. We have really been very impressed with Christ the King. It seems to be very strong, academically. The families have been very nice and extremely involved. Class sizes are a little smaller, which we like. We transferred our child here after attending another school and are very pleased with the decision.

The school is absolutely wonderful. With the small class sizes, teachers really have a chance to give your child individualized attention. There are also academic programs available to help children who are struggling or not being challenged enough. The wide array of extra-curricular activities and parent involving programs are spectacular! We really are one big family.

This school is absolutely- excellent! the classes outside of the core classes include art, music, p.E., Spanish, study hall, library, guidence. During lunch for middle school (6-8), they have science study groups. In elementry, you can set them up. After school, alot more activites take place. There is choir, clubs, student council, math counts (a program t practice for math contests), speech practicing for peech contests, you can set up homework elp with teachers. Some of christ the king's sports include soccer, track, & volleyball. Parents participate in the children's school alot, if they chose to. They set up parties for holidays, our famous fall festival, they have a 'parent's club' set to figure out ways to how our appreciation to our teachers every way possible, they help improve our school also every way they can, even though it doesn't need alot of improvement because it is always great!

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.
