“My husband and I always thought we would send our kids to the Catholic school I attended as a child. When the time came for our son to start school, we visited multiple open houses for Catholic schools that offered a pre-Kindergarten program, just to make sure we were making the right decision. When we went to Christ the King (CTK) School, it felt very welcoming and it had a strong sense of community. It was evident that the leadership and teaching staff were organized, engaged and passionate. We really liked the fact that the school was small with a flexible before and after school program, and our kids could be bussed to grandma’s house after school when needed.
To our surprise, we did not send our son to the school we originally planned but made the decision to enroll our son at CTK. We have been extremely happy with our decision and have not looked back.
Within two weeks of starting the Junior Kindergarten program, our son’s coloring and drawing showed noticeable improvement. He talks about “Kelso’s Choice”, which has given him the tools to deal with conflicts that may arise with other children at school (and his baby sister at home). He also talks more about God. Most importantly, he looks forward to going to school every morning. We feel that the Junior Kindergarten program has been an excellent balance of learning and play that sets a solid foundation for Kindergarten and the rest of his academic and social life.
The teaching staff at CTK have been wonderful with our son and we have peace of mind sending him to school even during the pandemic, as we know they will go the extra mile to keep the kids safe. Communication with the teacher has been easy and seamless. We can contact her by email as needed and she always responds promptly (even after hours). We also use the communication sleeve to send notes as needed in our son’s backpack.
We are extremely pleased that we have made the decision to send our son to CTK School. We know that if issues arise in the future, we will be able to discuss them openly with the teacher and principal. As a new family to the school, we highly recommend CTK and hope this information helps make an important decision easier.”
