Bullying is a big issue at this school. In the 7 plus years my daughter attended she was invited to a handful of birthday parties--which is a shame when there are so few students and especially in the younger years when everyone should be included. She is a smart, beautiful kid but you would have never

The only good thing about this school is the parent involvement. The school is lacking leadership from a principal who is rarely around and doesn't want to be bothered with the happenings around the school. The overall quality of the teaching staff is poor. In the five years our child attended CTK,

Class sizes continue to decrease because everyone is taking their children out of CTK and enrolling them in Auburn-Washburn. They were only a few students away from one kindergarten classroom this school year. If you have a child going to this school, I encourage you to observe in your child's classroom unannounced one day. Read less

Last year my son had a teacher at CTK that should not have been teaching. She broke his spirit and made him feel stupid. This year we are at a public school that when you walk in the door you can feel the positive attitude and the commitment to education and good character. The principal is VERY involved.
... Read more My son is excited to go to school and is excelling at his academics. Bullying is NOT an issue. I wanted a Catholic education for my son. But, as a parent I could not continue taking him to a school that I did not believe in. We still attend mass and enjoy being part of the parish. Read less

We enrolled our children at Christ the King expecting an education that exceeds that of a public school both academically and socially. Instead our children are academically behind students their age in the public schools in our area. We might be able to overlook this were they receiving a strong Christian
... Read more foundation. But they are not. Instead they daily witness bullying and belittling behavior from both students and staff. This behavior should not be a part of a Christian school and we are disappointed that it is tolerated. An absentee principal and numerous unprofessional teachers serve to promote this climate. Attending mass twice a week does not compensate for an environment that condones meanness when the expectation is that this is a Christian institution. Despite this, there are a number of very good teachers and many wonderful families at this school. We are members of this church community and our children's friends are here. It would be difficult for us to leave, but we often wish we hadn't chose this school to begin wth. We continue to believe in Catholic schools, just not THIS one. Read less

This is a great school!! We have been in the public school system as well as CTK. New's for those that gave bad reviews because of bullying..... it is everywhere & especially in 437. And as for money talking? It talks alot in the 437 school district also. And gossip? Please! Again I can refer
... Read more back to WR School district. Catholic Schools do tend to be behind in technology but that has not proven to help our children become smarter people. My husband and I did not have smart boards in our classroom and he managed to become a doctor & I am also a professional. In short, this is a good school. Provides a great education. A lot of the teaher's do a great job & we have been happy. I especially like that I know a lot of the families and feel comfortable sending my children over for play date's & sleep over's without worry. I guess I am 'old school'. I like the uniforms and the fact that the environment is more strict. Kids are growing up way too fast now with minimal supervision. Read less

We were really disappointed in the lack of preparation CTK provided for high school, especially in the areas of Science, Math and technology. It was alarming to find out that although they met the standard of excellence in Math as a school, there were several grade levels that did not. How come we
... Read more weren't told that? We were lucky enough to have two great teachers, but the others were not effective teachers and a few were down right mean! Science is taught straight out of the textbook with no hands-on experience. Finally this year we have heard that CTK now has projectors in the classroom after the archdiocese insisted they get up to speed with the other Catholic schools. They are still way behind with no smart boards in classrooms. Public school blows them away in the technology department. We wish the principal would have been around more and made sure the curriculum and technology was up to date. Read less
