Working at St. Christopher School is like one big happy family. The support that the teachers, students, families and administration give is overwhelming. It was so nice to be at the feast, supporting the school and parish when past and present students walk up and say hello. The love and respect from the St. Chris families is priceless.

As a teacher I am proud to represent St. Christopher. The students are a wonderful group; who make getting up every morning worth it. St. Christopher school offers so much educationally and spiritually, as well as many extra curricular and service activities. I am fortunate enough to love my job and the students and faculty that I see everyday.

I was so impressed by this school when I went to visit at their open house today. I was met with smiling faces everywhere I went and was excited to see so much parent involvement! The teachers seem wonderful and SMARTBOARDS in every classroom is something very valuable in todays world. I was so happy to see so many athletic teams being offered as part of the schools membership in the Catholic Middle School Athletic Association. I'm happy to say that my children will be coming to St. Christopher next year!

As a teacher at St. Christopher School, it is nice to know that prayer can be incorporated each day. Receiving Sacraments, Prayer Services, Service Projects, Altar Servers and going to Church as a School Community adds so much more to the school day. Our teachers prepare our students for the future, academically, as well as lifelong lessons. To add to this, there are many extracurricular activities. These activities include, Science Club, Board Games Club, Newspaper Club, Student Council, Math Fantasy Baseball, Rosary Club, Cheerleading, Basketball, Baseball, Softball, Drama Club, Math Olympiads, Almaniacs, Sports Night, and a whole lot more. Check us out at our Open House on Sunday, January 29th!

I have four children who attended St. Christopher school. Today they are all successful adults. The foundation they received academically along with the re-enforcement of our catholic faith was more than a parent can ask. I only hope and pray my grandchildren will have the same opportunity.. That is a strong catholic education.

My child has attended St. Chris since kindergarden and has had a great experience. He has made many friends, played sports, received the sacraments and gotten an excellent education. The teachers are caring and professional. They run many clubs and activities after school. The small group sizes in math and ela in the junior high have helped my child to do his best. My child was accepted into the three high schools he applied to and was awarded a scholarship to one. Thank you St Chris!

St .Chris has dedicated teachers who are always willing to give a child extra help. The school and the students are involved in many activities that help others in need. Visit our school on Jan. 29 and you can meet our students.

Grade 8 just received their acceptances to Catholic High Schools. Everyone was accepted into schools of their choice. Many received scholarships based on their score on the High School Entrance Exam. Thank you to the dedicated teachers.

I had attended St. Christophers from 5th to 8th grade and went on to a top High School. St. Chris did not prepare me for the work I endured during my High School years and did not help me explore my Christianity. Hopefully this school has changed the teachers as well since Father Steve has now been appointed in charge. Also I now know a current student that is in need of extra help, but none of the teachers like to give extra attention to students in need.

It is an average school that does not provide an atmosphere that edifiesand encourages living the Christian faith nor do they have enough teachers that can be considered truly professional . The principal should retire as her lack of direction and leadership has become a talking point among many concerned parents.

St. Christopher's is a good school, but there tuition rates are through the roof. They charge an extra $3,000.00 if you want to raise your christian, not catholic. It is a sin to charge someone extra money, when you are still raising your child in a christian faith.

I attended St Christopher's school from kindergarden to 8th grade and have done extremly well in high shcool. Some claim that the school needs work academically but i would like to provide an example of how baseless this notion is. I went to St Chris for 9 years and am now enrolled in a competitive catholic high school. Im taking all honors and college level courses including advanced placement united states history and honors physics. St Christopher's prepared me well for these accomplishments. While St Christopher's does not have the resources for children who need advanced care and special educatoin it does provide good education for the average student. St Christophers has an academic intervention program and every teacher offers extra help.

As far as St. Christopher's goes academically they need more improvement. They charge alot of tutition and you really don't get what you are paying for. Having to do hours is alot for parents who work and it seems that only certain families get acknowledge. If your child has any issues you are basically on your own. There is not enough available through the school. I was an unhappy parent and since my family left St. Christopher's my children have blossomed and love their new school.

While the St Christophers School is a healthy environment it does lack in a specific area. Should a child need additional resources such as reading , mathmatics, writing, they can only provide an Academic Intervention Service. This service though it is of some help is not sufficient for children who require more assistance and more time. Unfortunately since many private schools do not have the funding for additional help classes this burden falls on outside resources which adds to the financial burden a parent has when sending a child to a private institution. It is my hope that the school will get more funding and that this will no longer be an issue for children who need that extra help.

St Christopher School is superior. The healthy school environment keeps students attentive disciplined and beguiled at the same time. Christian attitude, and Behavior is very important. As a Catholic School we welcome everyone no matter race, or religion to try to enter. No matter who you are where you come from or what religion you are, you will be furthermore omniscient on Christian/Catholic beliefs and traditions. We attend mass regularly and students are allowed to join church ministries. Alter Service Choristers Alter Service, Choristers, & Bell Choir some of these ministries. Sport activities are available to those of age. Extra help is feasible to all pupils. Teachers will literally relinquish everything to help a student. Academic excellence in the school means that the teachers are phenomenal, and choice of textbook and workbooks are wonderous. We have the academic excellence. Teachers are very experienced. We have the academic The good immaculate school environment is wonderful. thank you.
