Teachers and staff are great. Most have taught at St Pius for many years or were students themselves. The principal is a wonderful lady and strong role model. The academics are challenging and the kids have access to computers that exceed most offices. The extra curricular activities are great but can get pricey if you have more than one child and they are in several things. The school could use a serious update cosmetically but it has a charm about it that makes it feel cozy. The families are all great too.

St. Pius is an excellent value for a quality Catholic education that emphasizes spiritual development, academics, extra curricular activities, and a great family experience.

Math program is behind the public school, outdated discipline style, a negative environment for kids.

St Pius is a great school community with the values and leadership that a student needs. This school prepares students to be organized and to face the next 4 years of high school prepared.

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.
