  • I will say that my girl is in kindergarten and her improvement is being amazing. I don't care about what other people say about this school the only thing I know is that my daughter and my son who is being there for four years had learned so much. I am so grateful to the teachers who are being able to work with me, always there to listen my concerns. About the principal, she helped me so much when the preschool where my girl was attending suddenly closed.

  • wow talk about sour apples! yes we have a new principal and yes there is a BIG learning curve. Maybe it is becuase the prior principal APPEARED to be great!
    yes this is a Christian Shool so maybe the parents that are unhappy should be Christians themselves and have some compassion and actually HELP the new principal instead of sending out letters to get her fired! I am pleased with what she has managed to salvage from the wreakage left behind. What I had issues with I was able to work out with her by going to her and talking to her about it. We choose to have our children there and yes we should leave if we do not like that the world does not revolve around us. I cannot believe parents complain about fundraising then they complain about tuition..lets make up our minds do we want to pay more or do more? Is there a website to complain about parents?

  • This school is not how it is used to be! There is a lack of administration for the past 3 years and the principal does not seem to care about anyparent issues regarding the school. This is what happens when you have family members working for the archdiocese!There is alot of favoritism especially with the upper grades.

  • St. Pius has really gone down hill ever since the new principal has come. I am in 8th grade and have been at this school for 10 years (since pre-k). I have seen the transition and can tell you it's just not what it used to be. Besides the academic level going down, the moral is horrible. The new principal is not kind at all and has no people skills. The one thing I do love about St.Pius is the teachers. They are so nice and helpful with whatever I need and can come to them with anything i need. I am so grateful to have had them to teach me all that i know....CLASS OF 2010!!!

  • yup. the school has really gone downhill. Primarily, because the principle does not seem fit for the job. students have lost a bunch of programs b/c she does not plan properly. i have seen many parents leave the school, and she doesn't care. Her motto, which she uses quite frequently, is, "If you don't like it...you can leave!" way to promote the christian spirit ms. V.

  • well...the old principal was absolutely amazing but i agree with the last comment it used to be a great school but the new principal is just running the school into the ground. The little chart at the bottom is wrong the kinder class has only 17 students now and the 8th grade has 28 or 27 and they're the biggest class now, that should tell you something about the school

  • I had to take my daugher out of this school because of new management was more focuced on Non-academic stuff, principal didn't seem worried about Drop-outs and quality of education was going down.

    Not sure what we got by sending my kids to private school but this is not the Private school you want your kids to join.

    Wish they were more focused on Discpline and Education and not on collecting donations and funds and make parents work so school can make some money

    New Principal seems she does not know what she is supposed to do and seems unqualified.

    Save your money and time, look elsewhere.

  • I am quite delighted with this school and the education my son is receiving. It is a private school, so monetary support is necessary but worth every bit. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for advanced education for their child/children.

  • St. Pius X is, in my opinion, the greatest school in the world. It gave me a great foundation and moreover allowed me to flourish while I was young.But what I mostly got out of this school was the incredibly strong bonds that I have created with my classmates. I miss them terribly and would give absolutely anything to go back to those days. I was formerly the school president and part of the amazing Class of 2008.

  • I love St. Pius X! St. Pius X school is so great! I am class of 2008 and I am going to miss St. Pius X school. I would not go to any other school than this. St.Pius X has not only given me a good education but also an idea for what I want to do in my future.
    SO I THANK YOU ST. PIUS X SCHOOL

  • I attended this school (on the B side), graduating in 1968.
    The level of education I received was far above that of public schooling.
    After graduation, I attended a public high school where I was at least 2 years ahead of my classmates!
    St. Pius X was academically superior in every way! I would gladly send my children there if I still lived in the area!

  • St.Pius X school is one of the best schools that I have ever been to in my whole educated life! St.Pius X school is a school that would be great for pre-k students to eighth. This is school welcome everyone with great hospitality. St.Pius X is a very safe environment and friendly environment to be in and trust me I should know because I go to this school. St.Pius X school has great teachers who is always there for you when you need help with anythings. If you need help studying of you have a problem with something the teachers their will do what they can to help you. St.Pius X school is a fun place to learn, and you can believe that when I say this is a really good school, it is!
