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
... Read more 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. Read less

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.

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.
... Read more 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. Read less
