My daughter attends Zion, and we can not be more pleased with the school. All of the teachers really care about the students, the academics are well above standard as is expected with a private school, and the school upholds a strong moral guidance for the kids, which I love. The class sizes range from very small to mid-size, which is also a plus because the teacher is able to attend to each different child's needs without an issue. My 2nd daughter will definitely be attending Zion. I highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking for the same. Sturretta
RE: Corpus Christi or other school with religious education
Have you looked into Zion Lutheran School? It's just up the street from Corpus Christi. My 3 kids attend and I couldn't be happier. It's academically strong with the advantage of being smaller - more individual attention. Edith
Zion Lutheran School (K-8) is one of the East Bay's best kept secrets. The school is on Park Blvd - just inside Piedmont and very close to Oakland's Montclair Village. I am the music teacher and my 3 children also attend.
We offer a lot of programs that are extras at other schools. We have a full time PE instructor - my 5th grader gets PE 4 times a week! I teach music twice a week and we also have computer and Spanish. Our 7th and 8th graders will take part in an outdoor education program on Catalina Island this year. Our 4th grade goes camping in ''Gold Country'' as part of their California History studies.
The class sizes are small - averaging around 20 students. The best part is that Zion has a ''family atmosphere''. The teachers and staff are truly caring and go the ''extra mile'' to help with problems.
Look in the Montclair and Piedmont papers for open house schedules. Check out our sign on Park Blvd too for announcements.
