We absolutely love this school. The teachers are fantastic. The whole staff is warm and welcoming. The best decision we could have made for our precious child.

St. Pius X offers academic excellence for our students and helps them grow in many ways inside and outside the classroom. They promote character development and leadership among the students.

This is our first year at St. Pius X Catholic School as our son is in kindergarten and we could not be more happy with our choice of schools. From the outstanding learning he is doing in the classroom, to the kind staff and the wonderful families we have met... St. Pius is a school in a league of its own!

Our family has been a part of SPX parish for five years, and we have been a part of the school for four years. Both of our kids have found the school to be challenging academically, and the environment is loving and nurturing. They are truly cultivating 'whole children.' The spiritual aspect of the education is important to us, and the level of volunteerism among parents is exceptional -- it feels like a family to us and we're so glad we chose SPX.

My children are receiving an excellent education at St. Pius. Students are academically challenged and are well prepared for high school. Teachers are very willing to help students that need extra help. Weekly school and classroom newsletters are posted to keep parents informed. My children love their school and church community. There are many extra curricular activities for students to participate in. There is a great sense of school pride shown as students represent their school at various activities.

We have had a fantastic experience with all three of our children at St. Pius X over the last 11 years. The faculty, staff and community are warm and caring and we all look out for one another. My oldest child is now in high school and was extremely well prepared for this next step.

My family loves St. Pius X Catholic School. We are so appreciative of the community connection between the church and the school. My children are challenged academically, supported spiritually and emotionally, and enhanced by the extra-curricular opportunities that are offered. Our entire family couldn't be happier with our decision to send our 3 children to SPX.

I have two children attending St Pius X. We looked at many schools in the area and found St Pius to be welcoming, academically challenging and family based. My kids do struggle at times with academics and St Pius has been wonderful getting them the resources they need to succeed. We always feel we can talk to the teachers and principle about any topics. I love the volunteer opportunities. It's a way to be more involved in my children's world. They are creating well rounded young people. I feel happy that my two children are in a safe and loving environment. They love being there and that makes us happy parents

St. Pius X Catholic Elementary School is a wonderful place to send your children. We have been thrilled with the education our children have been receiving there. The teachers and staff are very caring and involved. St. Pius teaches our children to be self motivated leaders!

I have found the school experience of my 3, very different, children to be exceptional at St Pius. I cannot believe so many negative reviews are posted here. Clearly, per human nature, we are more easily inspired to complain than to take time to praise goodness. As I said, my children were all at very different levels academically (one gifted, one solidly average, and one with a learning disability). All three were treated with love and dignity. All were taught well. And, all are doing quite well beyond grade school and middle school. My experience has been one of Christ centered curriculum and caring faculty and staff. I am grateful that St Pius was an option for our family.

Terrible, Terrible school. My child has all kinds of emotional problems from going here. Do not judge a book by it's cover...the only reason it has high ISTEP scores is because they are very selective about which children they want in their school. Also, way too much homework, my family is held hostage each night over hours of homework. Just be aware, the environment can be very stressful and emotionally detrimental to many children.

Do not choose this school for your child unless he/she is absolutely perfect. They do not know how to help children with any type of challenging issues. If you like a school that sends your child to the principal's office for 3 hours at a time for discipline and then leaves them in a room there so they don't have to deal with them (and not telling you), then this is the right school for you! This is not a loving environment. However, the more money you make, the more you will be loved here. They put too many children in one classroom with as many as 27 and 28 in some. After 5 unsuccessful years with a very intelligent child we are leaving this school.

I luv St. pius and i think even though at one point in time it had some bullying it has now evened out because of our new principal and bullying is not tolerated. St. Pius has a loving enviroment and great teacher who will ork with students intill the have not only understood the material but memorized it in a fun and enchirining way. I ould advise this school to anyone of my friends.

My child was bullied continuously at this school for an entire, she was also threatened by her bullier. The principal, teacher and other students and parents were aware...to make a long story short, we are leaving the school and the bully is staying. I am disgusted with this school, and unfortunately, this is not an uncommon event at this school
