School Reviews

Can't say enough about Christ Episcopal School! It is the perfect mix of challenging academics and a supportive and nurturing environment. The faculty cares deeply about its students and the students love going to school there. Truly a very special school!

The school quite simply produces well-rounded children, both socially and academically. The academics are extremely strong and graduates pretty much have their pick of high schools. What's more, the school has an amazing sense of community. There are no cliques or egos among parents, no helicopter parents making extraordinary demands for their kids (or if there are, they are politely put in their place). My daughter's class is one of the larger ones at the school - 24 overall, split into two classes - but they all get along as brothers and sisters. Older students mentor the younger ones, both in Chapel and academically. It's definitely one of the best-kept secrets in Montgomery County.

The program is superb. We and other parents can count on extremely strong academic fundamentals...with excellent language arts, writing and mathematics instruction reinforced and put to use in student teams tasked with research and problem solving. We and our CES friends know our children are getting an outstanding academic foundation that will prepare them for the higher educ. and job worlds they'll enter. And, at CES, they are surrounded by strong values, morals and ethics, as well as a devoted, caring faculty.

My older son has been at CES since he was 4. He is now a first grader. The administration is excellent, the teachers have been caring and attentive, and the school really does partner with parents to help develop your child's character -- a factor that is sorely insufficiently emphasized in the educational process generally -- but certainly not the case at CES. I've been especially pleased that during the kindergarten year my son went in just knowing his alphabet and at the end of the year, was a confident reader who wanted to read all summer.

Faculty and Staff committed to the whole wellbeing and growth of our children; Families who care (It takes a village!); and a rigorous academic program make this school the best kept secret in Rockville. We love CES!

Christ Episcopal School checked all the boxes on our list when we were looking for a school and has exceeded our expectations ever since. Extremely motivated and caring staff inspires the students to excel in their academic work. Our daughter could not be happier!

If you have a bright and talented child, Christ Episcopal School is the ideal place for them! They'll be challenged to push their boundaries and will learn so much! Our three children get so much from this school!

When we were looking at elementary schools in the area, we wanted one that didn't just educate children to be great students but to be great people as well. We found this combination at Christ Episcopal School. The unique LIFT curriculum, developed with Johns Hopkins, and small class sizes educate the mind. The creative daily PE curriculum encourages teamwork and sportsmanship, while building strength and coordination. But the strong sense of community that builds respect for others inside and outside the school is what sets it apart for us. We were most impressed by the mentoring programs that has older students working with younger ones. This interaction creates not just a community of learners but a CES family, a term you will hear often from parents, administrators, teachers and students. We look forward to being a part of this family for a long time.

Our middle school child has been at CES since Pre-K and I have to say it was a sheer stroke of luck that we came across this gem of a school in the center of Rockville, MD, all those years ago. The CES community (administration, faculty, families, alumni, and students) is an amazing place to be a part of! The education that is offered at CES is rigorous, challenging, and well rounded. We love that the kids take part in PE everyday, there is a wonderful musical instrument program, Spanish starting in kindergarten, and unique educational opportunities (such as a partnership with Johns Hopkins University). We know our child will be fully prepared to have great success in high school, college, and in life! CES is an excellent school!!

Our son has been an Christ Episcopal School for 7 years. It's been a wonderful experience and education. The personal small classes are fabulous along with creative and advanced teaching. The students go on regular field trips, have PE and get outside every day, have music & art, and Spanish. The chapel partner program is unique in that the older and younger kids get to know each other and spend time together. It's a really good community. I highly recommend it for families that want their kids to be challenged, while becoming well-rounded citizens.
