  • I have had my children enrolled at St. Pius for 9 years. Never in my nine years have I been more proud to be part of this school and community. We have an awesome administration, awesome teachers, parents and students. St. Pius is trully at it's best. Our principal, Mr. Deming, is fired up! Wonderful things are happening at SPX, come see for yourself!

  • I have read all the comments and let me start off by saying; the school has gone through some hard times, in past few years. I believe we have a great leader in our new principle. Most of the families that left are the ones that do not get involved and try to make things better. The parents and teachers that stayed and fought to make the school a better place I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart and the ones that left I wish you well. We have a great community and school. I was one of the families on the fence, I thought about leaving. I went to several other Catholic schools and took a tour of each one and each one was very impersonal. It was like they were doing me a favor by meeting with me. If I wanted to be treated like a number I would go to public school. Then I realized I am at St. Pius X for a reason and that is to help make this school a better place for the CHILDREN of St. Pius X.

  • School imploded last year, yet again. If St. Pius is not broken as one reviewer says, then what school is? So much lying and misinformation. Lost half its students during current pastor's tenure (not exaggeration). Completely new middle school faculty every single year (not exaggeration). To make matters worse most of the long-standing great elementary school faculty resigned out of frustration. Fourth principal in five years. Bully issues even made WOAI news. All facts. It is not just a “few” disgruntled former parents out there, there are hundreds that have left over years. It was such a great school with waiting lists not so long ago but community slowly broken by egos at top. Very sad, so many kids and families have been deeply hurt.

  • I notice new reviews on here concerning the "betterment" and turn around this school is making....well do not believe them. Their "new administration" submitted his letter of resignation last month...not even a full year after being hired to lead this failing school. Most of the "new, fresh" middle school teachers they speak about have also quit, or were fired. Many of the best teachers, with the most tenure (one having 18 years!!) have chosen to abandoned this failing school. In all, almost half the faculty have left this year! This school will never fix it's problems unless a total cleaning is done starting at the top with the priest of the parish! How can anyone rate this school with anything decent when current numbers speak for themselves. High teacher turnovers, a principal that resigns after less than a year and a dramatically declining enrollment (less than 150 after this year!) Research it FIRST...you will see!!! Last year people pulled their kids in huge numbers and this year it's the same. At this rate there will be very few children left at this school and I am sure those are the kinds you would not want you child in with.

  • It was providence that lead us to St. Pius X and to this day I am grateful. We have been at other schools. We came to St. Pius from one of the most academically rigorous and expensive schools in Texas so I have a solid basis for comparison. (I do not regret, for example) that my elementary chldren are not staying up until 9:00 every night doing homework anymore). St. Pius is the most decent, welcoming community, and it is NOT broken as some would have it. Staff issues you will find everywhere, but our leadership is wonderful, especially our pastor, who my children see at school ALL the time. He even taught them to sing to God in Gaelic. True the principal's position is in transition, but I am not worried, because the pastor has devoted all his time and energy to it and he is a very good man. The issues here are no less than elsewhere, it is just that St. Pius was blessed not to have them for a time. St. Pius is the strongest, most dedicated parent community I have ever seen and that has not changed. My children actually love going to school each day, they excel academically and are being molded into great human beings. I love that this school is still very genuinely Catholic, that boys can still be boys and girls can be girls here--many schools are unwilling to recognize the difference to the detriment of our young men. It is conservative, meaning it is Catholic through and through and I love that too. Folks, anyone can learn out of a book, but there is so much more to a child's life than that adn this is one of the schools that really, truly knows it.

  • Even though the priest received educator of the year, he has never been in a classroom, enrollment has fallen dramatically under his leadership and teacher turnover is at an all time high. There are some (few) good elementary teachers here but overall, teachers and children are an afterthought. Decisions that affect the entire school are made by a very few select parents who are not educators. If you want an ultra conservative school with a charismatic bent, this is the one for you. If you are looking for solid academics and actions by leaders that truly reflect Christian attitudes, look elsewhere.

  • The way the principal handles discipline will eventually make parents withdraw their children from St. Pius.

  • Very good school many years ago with over 40 kids in every grade, but has been slowly falling apart.

    The number of kids below in statistics section is very inaccurate. Many kids have been pulled and are now going to other Catholic schools. Most grades down to 17-25 kids. Leadership lacking.

  • I graduated from St. Pius X 3 years ago and I can say from my experience at this school that it is amazing. Everyone that attends this school feels a connection to everyone there. It was not just a school, it was home.
