Wonderful school. Children are POLITE and well behaved. Children are taught the basics in a diverse and nurturing environment. One of 2 school in the COUNTRY to implement the "see the change program," where PHYSICS becomes an integral part of the curriculum. No politics here, unlike nearby STEELE elementary

My child has been a student at Corpus Christi for four years now. This period includes the transition to the new administration. I noticed a few parents and faculty members had a hard time adjusting but this change was both necessary and unavoidable. Kim Schindler is an experienced and dedicated Principal.

We have cooperative parents who have adapted well and I can't imagine my child in any other institution in this city. Read less

This school has great potential. The administration and staff are dedicated professionals. The school is constantly evaluating its progress and procedures. However, a climate of entitlement from the parents and therefore from some students. I feel Corpus is striving for more accountability / cooperation

Still, I feel this school needs fewer days off during the school year particularly in the 1st and 3rd semesters; fewer weekly/daily schedules changes and more structure / discipline. Read less

As I read through the ratings, especially the one-star ratings, there is a lot of mention about the "administration." The previous administration (principal) was a long-time friend of many teachers and families. She did a fine job as principal. When the new principal was hired, the close relationships
... Read more some teachers and families had with the administration was gone. This was a change they couldn't deal with, as the status of being among the "favorites" was gone. They started to be held accountable, and they didn't like it. They became disgruntled. This is proven by the one-star ratings. A one-star rating? That's just an irrational reaction by someone who is just not getting his/her way. As a long-time financial supporter of this school, I would give it an honest 3.5 stars out of 5. That's a rational rating, not a rating intended to simply bring the overall rating up or down. Don't let these few disgruntled teachers and their rumor-spreading family followers affect your decision. Come visit the school and decide for yourself. You'll find many award-winning teachers and students making a difference in this community. Read less

This school is growing by leaps and bounds! Dedicated administration, faculty and parents are making a positive difference in academic accountability, technological innovation, and spiritual growth. A comprehensive strategic plan that included parents, teachers, and students has been enacted. Anyone
... Read more who speaks negatively doesn't know the full story and fell out of touch with the progress expected of Catholic Schools today. A 21st Century school cannot be run on nostalgia and red-tape. This school has moved from being teacher-centered to being student-centered. Jesus said, "Whoever receives a child in my name, receives me" (Mark 9:37). Such faith in Jesus Christ requires sacrifice for the sake of the children. In the past, this school had many free-loaders who would take and complain but not give and rejoice. If someone is not part of the solution, they are part of the problem. Now, both enrollment and generous donations are increasing. Change is not easy, especially when it has not happened for a long time. But unless we change and move ahead, we stagnate and fall behind. Keep up the good work, Corpus Christi! Read less

I would strongly recommend Corpus Christi Catholic School. As a veteran teacher with more than 30 years of experience and a new member of the staff, I would like to offer my perspective.

It is very unfortunate that a few parents from the past, a previous teacher and a few who have continued this year would try to put a "black eye" on this AMAZING school. The principal was hired to launch this school forward in all areas and this is exactly what she is doing. We are so pleased with

I taught at Corpus for 10 years. In 2009 we got kudos for our teamwork from an outside accreditation organization When the new administration arrived it met normal resistance. This is human behavior. What was destructive was the reaction of the administration. Professionals suddenly became people

When I realized I had no respect for the administration that was disrespecting me and feeding me falsehoods I decided to leave. I did not retire, For 20-years in the Air Force I lived by "Lead, follow or get out of the way!" I felt I had little choice. Since I left there was the big lay off and continued hemoraging of families with long connection to Corpus. Analyze closely before accepting any of the opinions expressed on this site! Read less
