Corpus Christi School is committed to provide one of the best preschools in the Washington DC area and is proud to announce our new Principal Laura Zybrick and our new Early Childhood Center (Preschool) Director Ann Stich. They have been working hard to address the prior concerns from parents and are leading Corpus Christi in exciting new directions. Corpus Christi is also proud to announce we have been selected as a Blue Ribbbon School of Excellence by the US Department of Education and would like to talk with you about our school.
This is a great school. My child has thrived here. He was in a program before this that he HATED. He loves this place, LOVES it. The teachers are wonderful, teach in a manner accessible to him. We are constantly amazed at what he learns. They are very proactive, both teachers and admin, in addressing any concerns parents may have. I feel my child is safe and loved and don't hesitate for a second bringing him here. He has made friendships I know will last a lifetime. We travel a great distance to send him here (there are other schools much closer). We don't have a single complaint, you can't go wrong.
The school administration staff has changed and greatly improved since spring 2009. I also had issues with the administration during 2008 to spring 2009. I am pleased to say that the new Director Ann Stich is very easy to work with and very understanding and organized and willing to work with you when concerns are brought up. Ann started in fall 2009.
I would strongly urge parents to seek a different preschool. I was very disappointed in the administration, the staff's attitude and how they react to situations. This is not a nurturing environment.
Our primary complaint is with the administration. There is not enough consistency between the morning and afternoon teachers and not enough proactive and positive discipline. The head of the school is an 'I can't' kind of person, and is not willing to try new techniques to help struggling students. Despite this, there are a few talented teachers, most people seem to care about the children (though not know preschool psychology or effective behavior management strategies), and the classrooms have wonderful, big windows that look out on trees. Students who are shy or compliant will probably have a very nice time here, especially if they only attend the morning school. Active children who stay for the whole day could run into problems.
