Since the reputation and the enrollment is down, the school is trying to recruit from the very catholic elementary schools they tried to put out of business in the area two years ago because CK founded and opened its own public charter middle school for grades 6-8, with financial incentives to catholic school graduates. However, if CK had its way, there would be no catholic grammar schools in the area to have a middle school to draw from. Amazing trick but nobody in Middle Village, Ridgewood and Glendale are going to fall for it and will continue to boycott selecting CK as any choice on the TACHS.

Academics are weak. Some teachers have poor...POOR classroom management. One of the science teachers tells inappropriate life stories about his drug experiences and says inappropriate things in the classroom. Cliques. Privileges. Athletics. For the amount of money they charge, these things should be in check.

My son is a senior and my daughter is a junior ; they speak very well of the school. The young adults at Christ the King are pleasant and very respectful, not to mention smart and responsible. I am happy as a parent.

My son attends CK & I am so proud of his decision. The school gets alot of slack because of the diverse students but its up to the student who attends the school who they want to hang out with. Every school has issues no matter what private or public! It is so not tolerated at this school, the safety & well being of the students are always taken care of from the excellent staff that run CK!

My son currently attends Christ The King Regional High School. The school fosters an environment of learning for students who are average learners to those who are on the Principal's List. I am impressed with the no tolerance policy. They do not compromise the rules. I am also impressed with how happy the students are--my son included. This was his first choice , and the right choice. He is in the the honors program and it is very enriching. CK is truly a family, however, parents do need to be more involved. Getting the word out about how great this school really is can turn around many adverse opinions that may be circulating in the surrounding community. We need to attract more of our own community kids to the school, just as we have so many teachers from our tightly knit community. Keep going strong, CK!!

I'm currently a junior in college and I can't speak highly enough about CK. I made some great memories and still have lasting relationships and friendships with my former teachers. I felt thoroughly prepared for my college curriculum and have continued to excel in college, all thanks to the educational foundations I received at Christ the King. Teachers really care and go out of their way to help students who show an interest. Extracurriculars are phenomenal, well-funded, and varied. Everyone finds a niche. It's just a really fun place to spend four years.

It is unfortunate that not many parents take the time to review this school. As a parent with a child currently enrolled at CTK, I wanted to provide my observations of the school thus far. As far as discipline goes, the school is very strict, which is not a bad thing. Latenessess, excessive absences, and unruly behavior are simply not tolerated. Academically, so far it seems to be adequate. Homework volume depends on the individual teachers, and some days there is more than others. There is however a concentrated focus on regents prep and so far exams reflect that. For students who are good at standardized testing, this will not be a problem. However, for those who aren't this could be a tough transition while learning to master these skills. For the most part my child enjoys attending CTK.

They can't be doing that bad a job- students have gotten academic scholarships to Yale, Columbia and New York University the past couple of years. They are not second rate colleges.

Posted June 30, 2010

I agree with the previous reviewer- academics are weak. Teachers are concentrated on preparation for regents exams, not on giving students a broad understanding of academic subjects. If you are planning to send your child to a Tier 1 college, think twice about sending him/her to this school.

Conveniently located in the cemetery. Sports program very strong. Academics weak. It's a shame the academic students pay to keep the sports program running. Some of these parents do not realize how the tuition is being utilized.

I am currently attending this school and it is racist. Also, the deans are unfair and don't do their job properly.

This is a great school. It is safe, orderly and clean. Most of the teachers are wonderful instructors. The principal and assistant principals are very caring and there is great change for the better going on. There are a lot of new programs that the kids really like. Many members of the administration, teachers and staff have their own children enrolled in the school. What better vote of confidence in the school can you have? I also like that most of the people (including administration) live in the community. This gives them a great stake in the success of the school. As you may have figured out, my family loves Christ the King.

Great atmosphere! Supportive and caring. I loved Christ the king! Wish I could go back. I would definitely recommend this school to everyone!

Christ the King is an excellent Catholic School. The programs in this school vary from extended to honors to advanced placement, in which challenges students to work to the best of their academic potential. Unlike many public schools, the art and music programs flourish, with students earning scholarships to various colleges for music. What else can I say? The list on how wonderful this school is can go on forever!
