Elementary School K-5

Elementary School at Christ the King Catholic is for Kindergarten through 5th grade students.

Students are offered curricula to meet their needs as individual learners. Students work through a challenging academic curriculum that is integrated with the values taught by the Catholic Church. Each classroom is a community built on the teachings of the Catholic Church and virtue-based discipline. They receive art, music, physical education and library all taught by specialists. 4th grade students use school-issued Chromebooks to assist in their learning process.

Our Reading Specialist works to meet the individual needs of some students. Small group work or individual work is provided during school hours for students based on teacher referral or testing.

Grade Level Assessments: Individual assessments are conducted periodically throughout the year for progress and reporting.
