i dont feel the school takes enough time to learn the content of character of the volunteers they subject there children to ie.basketball coaches etc.
My child has been attending SPX from Pre-K thru 3rd grade. My child's experience has been a mixed one: The school is less creative and progressive in areas of academics, i.e. integrating the use of technology in learning. I feel his self-esteem has been affected by a character-building program that is not reinforced by the behaviour of some of its teachers dealing with bullying, etc. The focus on information overload and heavy homework commitments doesn't seem to translate into improved test scores, especially in the upper grades in math and science. Lack of integrating creativity and critical thinking has been another concern. As well, the lack of progressive attitude towards unstructured playtime and/or the importance of fresh air breaks in the busy daily schedule of repetitive seatwork has become a key disappointment. The biggest strength, by far, of the school is its families: most are warm, diverse, supportive and very involved.
My daughter has been in St Pius since PK-4. She is now in the 1st grade. She has had nothing but a great experience being here. Me as a parent im very satisfied with St Pius.
My family has been part of the St. Pius X School community for 10 years. It has been one of the best choices we have made for our 3 children. They have grown academically, spiritually and emotionally. Teachers, staff and administrators provide a safe, nuturing environment while achieving academic excellence in all areas. My family is proud to be a SPX family.
