Behavior problems in the classroom are not dealt with. Kids with parents who have tons of money get away with whatever they do in the classroom and on the playground.

Christ the King is the best Catholic grade school in the Archdiocese in my opinion. We have excellent teachers, a challenging curriculum, faith based learning, 1 to 1 iPads in every classroom so that technology is integrated into every aspect of learning and we are blessed with an incredible administration, a principal who encourages parental involvement and an inclusive, loving community of parents and parishioners. I highly recommend our school to anyone who wants a wonderful, faith filled, educational experience for their children.

This is one of the best private Catholic schools in Portland. A great community, amazing teachers and a challenging curriculum. All of my children have attended K-8 here and it has been the best choice we ever made.

I am a parent whose daughter is currently in the 5th grade. She started here in Kindergarten and we have had nothing but wonderful and positive experiences. Although it is a small school with small class size, there is a surprising amount of ethnic diversity. Over the last five years, it has been my observation that every principal past and present, has stood outside the entrance every day and welcomed each child by name. What a positive way to start the day and reinforce to each child that they are loved and acknowledged. If you want your child to receive a quality education in a safe and nurturing environment, this is the right school. The families here care about each other.

5 years ago, this was a wonderful school, with a waiting list to get in...however, adminstrational changes, losing 4 great teachers, one amazing librarian, stopping the 'electives' program, over emphasizing the negative behaviors of students rather than emphasizing their positive behavior, has created an atmosphere of mistrust. They have had over 90 students leave in the last 3 years, some for public school and some to other Catholic schools. Until they make the needed changes, it is not a school I can recommend.

This is a wonderful, family-oriented school. The 8th grade math curriculum (in 2009) goes from a solid Algebra to preparation for Advanced Algebra in high school. The science curriculum is excellent, despite the lack of lab facilities. The library is wonderful and sponsors visiting authors, the technology program is outstanding, teachers are very dedicated and the music, p.e. & Spanish programs are excellent. We have had four children go through CTK and it has been a wonderful experience.

I went to public schools previously and none of them compared to Christ the King. It is a small school so everyone knows each other and there is really a big family feel to the school. Teachers also give their students the full and undivided attention they deserve.

While reading the reviews already given, and being a parent at this wonderful school for 11 years (2 children) all I can say is [this is] a Christian based school filled with above average educational scores along with children of all learning capabilities. I would never hesitate to recommend this school. I can guarantee [that they] have more than prepared the children to go to High School.

The school is great! We have a sixth grader and she is learning at a level above what her classmates are at other schools in our area. Hands down we our happy with smaller classroom sizes, the family atmosphere, parent involment, and the school always looking at ways to improve with the parents input.

This school is great! It provides excellent christian education and is clearly 6months to one year above the public schools in course curriculum.

Bottom line of this school is that it is pathetic. While other students are already developing skills beyond introductory calculus at other schools, they are still teaching basic arithmetic in the eighth grade! Ridiculous!

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.
