My daughter is in the Pre-Kindergarten at St. Pius. I am pleased with the school's program, as my child has grown academically, spiritually, and emotionally. Many of my family members are also impressed with the school, based upon the experiences my daugher has had this school year. My daughter is very excited to share what she is learning in school each day. As a result of a conversation, my daughter inspired my mother to research various artists and their work (Picasso, Henri Matisse, and Marie Lorenchen). I feel that my child is in a safe and nurturing environment. In addition, the school communicates effectively with parents and provides many opportunities for parent engagement. By the way, the parents are very active in the school community. Overall, this experience has been good for my child.

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 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.

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.
