Ctk is a school that is growing in all ways. It had a rough start, as all new schools do, but it is in its way to becoming one of Newark's finest prep schools

Here is a story about Christ the King Prep that shares an alternative viewpoint to the one expressed by the two obviously upset parents: http://www.examiner.com/education-news-in-newark/christ-the-king-preparatory-school-the-school-that-works-1 In fact, Christ the King Prep, Newark's Cristo Rey School, has a myriad of student clubs and activities and a growing number of athletic programs in addition to our unique and innovative corporate internship program and our values-based college preparatory curriculum. In fact, our students receive more classroom hours in 4 days than public school students do in 5. Furthermore, last year, from our 24 schools nationwide, 100% of our graduates were accepted into college. We intend to achieve the same results in Newark, and we are on track to do so. As we prepare to graduate our first class in June 2011, already a number of students have received acceptance letters to college. You can also check us out on our website at: www.ctkprep.org.

This is one of the worst catholic schools in jersey I wouldn't even give it a star!!! I regret ever having my child attend this school. if you have a choice public schools might be better.

Too much upheaval at the administrative level in three years parallel the total chaos in the classrooms. No activities, no sports no services for students and lets be realistic, in four days a week no teen is receinving a 'prep school' education. Lack of control has kids all over the place. Noble idea, but unrealistic for any but the top1% ( who could succeed anywhere). Deeply troubled urban atmosphere; no resources.
