Christ the King Early Learning Academy has met and exceeded our expectations. My daughter began her education in a Bright Horizon s program at 2 months (exceptional) and we moved her to a small church based program. We quickly found that the small church based program was more of a day care then an educational/developmental program (as indicated). One of Mrs. Placey s first statements to me was that We are not a day care. As a parent you only want your child to be safe and secure when s/he is in the care of others. The school has a secure entry and because the building is small it is much easier to monitor. Educationally my daughter has made leaps forward, her growth through the program has caught both my wife and I by surprise as she has made statements or counted beyond where we thought she was. If you are looking for an educational based program (more then Learn by Play) with a professional staff led by a Director with focus and vision for her program you need to look into CTK Early Learning Academy. The building is small, lunch is not provided and the school day is short (there is extended care) but the program is exceptional with the current staff in place.

We are so glad we chose Christ the King Early Learning Academy for our child. He is receiving individualized, exceptional, and unique academic opportunities while gaining a very special beginning in his journey of Catholic faith formation. He enjoys being at CKELA and is continuously challenged with an exciting curriculum and fun activities. CKELA has provided a caring and nurturing environment for our child. We also enjoy the strong sense of community among the families and faculty at CKELA.s, which I believe is quite important in our society today. The teachers and staff under the direction of their admirable and energetic, Mrs. Placey, were all efficient, knowledgeable, perceptive and caring to the learning and affectional needs of the children. And the children were never bored. They were always either busy doing some Science, Geography or Art projects, or having fun playing together, socializing with one another, or going out on Field Trips or Nature trips, exploring the world.

This school has transformed from a PK-8 school to an early learning academy in the past few years. To put stock in ANY of the reviews older than that would be foolhardy. Entirely different school; different staff. Rating it a five since I have to rate it to submit this comment

I put my heart into teaching! I take pride in my students work and efforts.Thank you for all your kind words! I do believe that Christ shines through our words and deeds. I feel bad that there are some who have not had a 'christ centered' experience at C.K.S .That is what our staff tries to instill in our children....A Christ centered life! God bless you and help you in your choice of school, everyone!

You know what, im a student at christ the king school and yes its small and yes theres no band. But ive had the best times of my life there. Your just making a fool out of your self by cutting the school down because you left. Also poor math and science? youve got to be kidding me. My science and math teacher is teaching us advanced high school math and science. I ask my friends at other schools what there learning, and there at least 8 chapters behind us. So stop crying about how bad the school is.

Our child goes to this school and we are very pleased of her learning process. The small class size encourages more participation, active learning, and good interrelationship among students. The teachers are competent as translated by good performances of students in competetions like science fairs. Kids are well-mannered and behaved as Christian values are instilled to these kids as they learn and grow. Everytime our child goes home, she's always happy and excited to go back to school. So come and visit the school and see for yourselves what Christ the King School-Lombard is doing to the kids and discover other blessed things it has to offer.

We find this school the best for our child. The teachers and school staff are very competent, hardworking, and bringing out the best from our child. We find the kids well behaved and this is accredited to good Christian values being instilled in the curriculum, added to their good academic performance. The small class size is conducive for more participation, active learning, and good interrelation among students of all ages. Every parent is entitled to his or her opinion regarding the school, and mind you, there is not only one or two parents from this school. It is rather recommeded to come and see the school and discover for yourselves what Christ the King-Lombard can offer.

My child thrives at this school. There is a real sense of community. It bothers me that a few bitter people wrote such nasty comments here. They are entitled to their opinion. However, I find there comments shocking and completely untrue. As with several other small Catholic schools, the numbers per classroom are small. I find this to be great academically. This is a school where remarkably your see abundent amounts of respect among the students. They really care for each other. The upper and lower grade levels support and help one another. Spanish is taught even at the lower grade levels. The technology teacher is phenominal. He really teaches the children to think outside the box. The faculty is passionate about teaching the children well. If you are looking for knuckle-breaking strict, this is not the school for you. This school nurtures the children and is scholastically strong.

This is an awful school. The school itself is falling apart, lacks airconditioning (gets extremely hot!!), library, and playground equipment. The church has been updated, but nothing done to the school. The principle is a joke, good luck getting ang phone calls returned or any concerns answered. And definatly becareful what you say to her, she loves to gossip and talk badly about parents to other parents and faculty. The small class sizes do nothing to provide better education to your child, so don't expect one-on-one help. The school is abound with bullies and clique, which the faculty does nothing to adress. My child is finishing out the year and after going there for a couple years and with nothing improving will be leaving next year. I suggest that anyone considering this school looks elsewhere.

This is a wonderful school! I am extremely pleased with the teachers and especially, the principal. This school has changed for the better over the last few years! My children are being taught an advanced curriculum. It is way above their cousins public school curriculum. I couldn't be happier with this school!
