I have two children at St. Pius X School. The kids enjoy going to school and I am very pleased with the education they have received. I enjoy hearing the Bible stories they have learned. Just as important to their education is their spiritual growth. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.

The third grade teacher, Mrs Ward, is really great doing homework sessions to help students in all grades!

This is by far one of the best schools in Mobile. The student body is well behaved. The teachers appear to be professional. The school is truly Catholic in education and discipline. The location is probably the best in Mobile for working parents. No other school is closer to an interstate exit, yet still in a quiet neighborhood.

Saint Pius offers a quality Catholic education. My children are thriving at SPX. They are challenged academically and spiritually.

Wonderful learning enviornment for our children. They are getting a first rate academic program while in a christian atmosphere. There is not a better place to grow spiritually, physically, emotionally while achieving academic excellence!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
