St Pius X Catholic School 5

This year St. Pius X received a new principal. At first my family was a bit apprehensive, as we weren't sure what to expect. Did things at St. Pius X change, yes they did, but for the better. There is definitely more attention being given to the faith and it's apparent in all aspects of the school. In the past, academic eligibility was never really enforced in sports, but now academics has taken center stage. The students are being held accountable for their actions, which is long overdue. The school is still making a transition with the new principal. The previous principal often times talked about change, but never followed through with anything, rather opting for whatever was easier (less confrontational) at the time. This lead to groups of parents forming "clicks" that, in my opinion, up until recently really ran the school. This is no longer the case and St. Pius X has gone from a community of small groups to a true Catholic community where everyone is welcome. I will continue to send my girls to St. Pius X, not just for the strong academics, but for a truly Catholic education.

I'm grateful for the new principal at St. Pius. She has already had such a positive impact on the St. Pius Community.

The teachers are great and care about each student. Even newer teachers show the same compassion as the teachers that have been here for many years.

Some days there are more homework than others, but my kids are challenged to grow in every class.

The students show a real passion for learning. There are field trips to the museum that coincide with the lessons in the classroom. My kids are truly eager to learn.

This is truly a Catholic school in every aspect of my children's education. The Catholic faith is present in the classroom and it's obvious by how the students behave in and outside of school.

St. Pius X is a GREAT SCHOOL! Two of my three children have attended elementary through middle school at St. Pius. The school has an exemplary staff and wonderful families! The principal and staff are extremely dedicated to students and their families. The principal is a true leader. He is a servant devoted to effectively interacting with staff, students and families to provide the safest, nurturing, and caring learning environment for ALL STUDENTS!!! He has kept the school up to date with the latest technology and advancements in education. The teachers are very highly qualified, not only having taught at this school for years, but are knowledgeable and current with the latest trends in education. Teachers treat students like family. They are firm, but loving and hold each student accountable for their own education.

Great School! We've been at St.Pius for four years and now have two kids attending. They both love the school and the teachers. The teachers are helpful and listen. Older kids also are great with the younger ones. The curriculum is great and they provide help for those who need extra help and extra activities for those ahead of the average. They try to meet the needs of all children. Class size is great with about 20 students to one teacher. When I talk to parents from other schools I find that my kids are receiving an excellent education and often doing more than kids at other schools!

Gone are the warm teachers replaced by subpar ones, Middle school math suffered with a poor teacher that effected alumni's math scores leaving them unable to advance into A.P classes. Students learned more about planning a wedding.The new math teacher is a step in the right direction. The budget cuts were too deep and the students suffered the hits. The aesthetics of the school have improved greatly but the high standards of past teachers are gone. Student teacher ratio of near 30 students slows grading and parent/teacher communication also suffers. Changes are needed to return some goodness and kindness with less disciple. The school has become more military. The children are loving and giving as a result of religion ed. and weekly mass. The school presents well but look closely at the children's faces during instruction. Gone are many of the smiles replaced by stressed unhappy, overly controlled children unable to spread their wings unless they ask permission. Teachers are tired and overworked. Special/gifted program,qualified exceptional teachers are more important than a upgraded library that's used for 10 minutes a week, and a upgraded playground, new carpet, and P.A. System.
