Our daughter is a new student at Corpus Christi this year, and she couldn’t be happier! She has immediately connected with the teachers and her classmates. Children are so kind and extremely welcoming to new kids. This is such a friendly and diverse school community; it immediately makes new families feel at home. One of our main considerations in selecting Corpus is the strong emphasis it places on excellence in academics, and in providing an all-around faith-based education to our children. This has been fully validated. The teachers are caring and attentive in addressing student’s inquiries during class. They guide students’ organization both in the classroom and on the daily work assigned, which is incredibly helpful in keeping them focused on task and meet their expectations for the next day. The online communication system (HomeworkNow) used by the school is highly efficient, helping both students and parents stay up to speed on scheduled work assignments and other important classroom information. The academic instruction is strongly supported by the number of extracurricular activities they promote. The variety of clubs and enrichment activities that are facilitated, to include Band, Choir, and CYO sports among others are exemplary. The school’s rich environment is only reflective of the selfless dedication and strong, positive leadership from its Principal. Having transferred from another school in the Diocese where she attended for the past 3 years, there is no doubt in our minds that we made the right choice and that Corpus Christi is the right place for our daughter. We highly recommend it to any parent that wishes for their kids to thrive!

I highly recommend Corpus Christi School. My children have been going there for the past five years and we have been very happy the sense of community we have experienced. The school fosters academic excellence through its highly experienced and qualified teachers and rigorous curriculum. At the same time, the school nurtures cultural arts appreciation through its art and music departments and yearly programs such as Night of the Arts, Art Show, Choir and Band Performances, and Christmas Pageant. Every teacher we've had has been responsive. The current principal is extremely dedicated to continuously improving the school. The school has vastly improved under her energetic and positive leadership. We've also greatly appreciated the cultural and economic diversity that Corpus Christi represents. In addition, Corpus Christi has a very active PTO which offers numerous opportunities for families to engage with and support the school. My child has enjoyed being part of the school's athletic programs. In short, we feel blessed to be part of the Corpus Christi community and feel our kids are getting a quality education, in a diverse and safe environment.

The school has been renovated and looks great ! The teachers keeps changing and the new principal Is rude, has no respect for the Parents and thinks she can yell at any one. It will be a nice school without her. So sad!

We've been really happy with Corpus Christi. Our two kids transferred from International schools overseas this past year, and they LOVE Corpus Christi. Their classes are really friendly, their teachers are good, and the material is challenging (in a good way). My 3rd grade daughter is catching up in math, and Mrs. Menzies, the Kindergarten teacher, is wonderful. We appreciate the weekly reports on the kids' progress -- I felt out of touch at their last (PYP) school, and it's great to feel more involved in what they're doing. I also love that the school is so diverse, and there are kids from all over the world. It's a great community.

We have two kids that have been attending the Corpus Christi School. It is an outstanding school. Our other two children will also be attending this school. Corpus Christi has great teachers and administrators. The Principle and staff are compassionate, respectful and hardworking providing a wonderful and caring environment for there s students. We ve been very happy with our kindergarter progress. The kindergarten teacher is amazing!. The school not only provides a strong academic but also offers its students an opportunity to put their faith into action on daily basic. We re not sure if a school can receive a higher compliment. We would highly recommend this school to parents. It s well worth the money. The Truongs.

Corpus Christi school has been an excellent choice for our family. It is an extension of our parish community and provides a well rounded academic, spiritual and fun extracurricular environment. Hands down the faculty is top notch, with several there 10+years. A new principal, multiple class tracks, and several facility improvements and refurbishments, have enhanced our experience. It has wonderful green space with a large playground and field. We also utilize the after care program, which has greatly improved this year with the development of a structured schedule that includes homework time, play time, free time and healthy snacks in addition to physical activity in the gym. Big plus! The program also has a dedicated director, assistant director and a compliment of staff. Care is also available on early dismissal days and teacher work days and can be included in overall cost depending on the offered plans. For these reasons and more we highly recommend Corpus Christi School.

This year extended day program is terrible, hopefully it will be changes in the future. For now, don't leave your kids in extended day.

This school is good. However the principal tends to misunderstand some kids. Also the school is very strict. Some teachers are awesome but a few teachers tend to over-react a bit. Overall it's a pretty good school but has some blemishes

My children have been attending Corpus Christi for several years now. There has been a lot of changes in the school administration during that time. The newest principal has taken a real interest in the school and in getting to know the children and parents. The school has a strong focus on education and academic excellence. On the down side, sometimes my third grader is too overloaded with homework in the evenings and the teacher isn't always good about updating the homework web site so that my husband and I know what assignments are due when and when the exams are. The class room sizes are smaller than other schools which is one of the reasons that we chose the school. My elder child is very shy and performs better in smaller groups. The school has a well balanced curriculcum with poetry and art contests, Christmas pageant, choir, Spanish language class, computer lab and a library.

This is our first year. I currently have a 9 year old attending 3rd grade and a 3 year old attending pre-school. We chose this school because public school was not addressing issues. Both my daughters love this school. The principal, director pre-school, and Ms. Kaye is awesome. The kids are challenged and are getting a great education. So far we love it.

We chose Corpus Christi because of its reputation; its before and after school program; and its early childhood center. Our first daughter entered in third grade and is now a college freshman. I attribute her academic success in high school and college to the firm educational foundation she received at Corpus Christi. Our second daughter entered in Kindergarten and is now in 7th grade. She, too, is excelling in the Corpus Christi environment.

I have three children at the school now and feel that they are all challenged academically and have learned much more that our friends children at our local public school. All three children are very different in personality and learning style, however they all had the same teacher and she was able to work with and adapt the best learning methods for each student. The community environment is wonderful and the kids look at school like their extended family. All the teachers we have dealt with have been knowlegeable and very competent. We also like the discipline and uniforms as they keep all students on an equal playing ground.

I've been a member of the Corpus Christi family for over 3 years now and have been very pleased. I feel a strong sense of community and am pleased that my children are being raised in the Catholic faith.

Fantastic school with terrific teachers. My children have attended the school for 7 years. They have received an outstanding education and have tested in upper 10 percent of all standardized testing. They are involved in the advanced band, track, basketball and the school play. The school offers an extended day program and has an early childhood center for 3 year olds and up. I most enjoy that they are in a Christian learning environment where they are challenged to recognize the gifts they have received and use them to help others.

Have had 3 children there over the past 7 years. Preschool, kindergarten, and early grades (1,2) are wonderful. They set an early strong foundation on which to build. However, the follow-through in the older grades is not there. The Arlington Diocese does not value education about the 'average' child. Bright children are not challenged and are even discouraged from showing their abilities. The administration is poor--teacher turnover has been very high in the last 5 years. That is a sign of problems in the front office. The prinicipal is ineffective. The school psychologist does not understand educational testing. She was also not helpful in dealing with problems at the school involving bullying and threatening behavior toward teachers. We moved all three of our children to public school this year. The experience has been eye opening.

Our children started attending this school from preschool up to 8th grade. Our older daughter and our son have since graduated and in senior year in college now. Our younger daughter is in the fifth grader. What attracts us most as parents are the strong Christian and moral values that are imparted to our children to make them ready to face the world? Our children are very mature in their thinking and have strong values. The children love their school, their teachers and friends. Friendship have bonded our children and their friends until today. The teachers are great; the Principal is wonderful and down to earth.

I have believed in Corpus Christi ever since my children started attending this school from preschool up to 8th grade. My son has since graduated and in high school and my daughter is in her last year. What attracts me most as a parent are the strong christian and moral values that are imparted to our children to make them ready to face the world. My children are very mature in their thinking and have strong values. Not even once did they ever think of changing schools. The teachers are great, the Principal is wonderful and down to earth. Both the school and church have stood by us in times of grief and need. We couldn't have asked for a better school.

Corpus Christi School provides an excellent environment for children to excel academically and socially. My son still attends and my daughter is a graduate. The strong academic program resulted in her going on to honor and advanced courses in high school and being the top student in most of her classes. The junior high curriculum was and still is challenging for students. Being able to integrate faith and values into the curriculum helped to reinforce what was being taught at home. She has become a very strong individual who is compassionate towards others and not afraid to stand by the principles and values she has been taught.

Corpus Christi is a school both my children and I love. The teachers are caring and supportive, the lessons are taught well and enthusiastically. They also have extended day/ day care that has been a wonderful program for my family. I like the staff and whole school environment.
