Christ the King was exactly the atmosphere I needed for the career I intend to pursue. At CTK, students of all grades are given the opportunity to go out and work in the business world, teaching us communication and networking skills. My work experience has heightened my abilities to cooperate in a corporate atmosphere alongside adults. I am truly appreciative of CTK's genuine personalities of which, in a sense, allowed me to gain confidence in the workplace and withing myself, in general, throughout the past four years.

There aren't too many good things to talk about when this school is the topic, however, the people who work together to make the school, create a decent learning environment. Sadly, even the best of teachers and instructors can't make this school better than what it is.

With overworked and underpaid teachers, an administration that cares more about their business ties than their students, and a flawed inner network which can't properly translate to the competing schools, the best decision is to either steer clear of that school of leave while you still can because that school is going under in 5 years at the very most.
Christ the King Preparatory School is a welcoming community where everyone knows one another. You learn in small learning communities where teachers know your name and are available for help when you need it at most. Christ the King is in a highly safe environment in the Northward of Newark. There is highly never any violence occurring around the area. Also, Christ the King places students (9th-12th) in the corporate world giving students internships, helping them be ahead of the game. However, Christ the King is a small school ranging from 200-230 students a year and still growing that pushes students to succeed with their 100% college acceptance and high school graduating percentile.
