Have had two sons attend. Bold and consistent curriculum, caring teachers and great role models as classmates. One of the signs of a good school is a small international population. Couldn't recommend the school more strongly.

Only 4 months, but so far a fantastic place for our son. There are so many adult role models, great teaching ratios, and good classmates and families. Experienced teachers, most with many years at the school. Couldn't be happier.

Do not be fooled by reviews that this school puts up. This place is a reform school in disguise. Talk to former students too see for yourself and ask these students if they even still talk to their parents. This school ruined my high school life. Do more research than this site, this school is known for making its own reviews. I would suggest reform school review sites as that is what this school is classified as (even though they don't like to admit it). Skeptical? Take a look at their student schedule posted on their site, that might give you a clue.

This school has been the best experience for my two sons. It is an independent school without an elitist attitude. The sense of community at Christ School is strong and the faculty cares for each student. I am so proud of the strong men that my sons have become and attribute their growth to the Christ School experience.

Great experience for young men. Administration is top notch. Faculty very accessible,caring and demanding. A true college preparatory high school.

Christ School may just be the best school in the country for "Boys" they get them and what the need to excel. Lots of structure but because it is based in the Episcopal Christian tradition ( most of the top prep school are) not oppressive like a military or baptist fundamentalist school. Great Sport and outdoor program. Best of all really good college placements

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
