My daughter attended St. Pius for 4 years and did well, although I suspected she had "something" wrong with her ability to aguire and retain information, was reassured with the learning specialists there that she was fine. Transferred her to public school and they had her screened right away due to her being so far behind. Found out she had ADD and learning disabilities, took her 2 years to catch up. St. Pius is okay as long as you are sure your children don't have any learning disabilities when you enroll them because they don't seem to be aware of these things , which makes me wonder how many kids are pushed through without the problems having ever been addressed, for us St Pius was a huge mistake. My daughter is now honor roll, but she has an IEP and is on Concerta for her ADD, what difference it has made.

Both of my children have attended saint Pius and I would reccomend it as an elementry school, more than a middle school.They teach great values to the younger kids, but I feel that they are not given much room to learn responsiblity. The fild trips,sports and other activities are very limited due to the school being over crowded. I feel that my childs education was suffering because of the schools growth. This quality of the school is lacking due to the high enrollment. Before you enroll- please find out the class size. I am sad to say that this will be our last year, I would have liked to see them finish at St.P's.

My son has been going to St. Pius for two years now and we just LOVE everything about it - teachers, principal, curriculum, etc. The school stands by their slogan "Do your best and be kind to others". Whenever my son has had a problem (academic and/or behavior) all teachers and principal have helped us help my son to overcome it. I can't say enough about St. Pius. LOVE IT!

Excellent blend of high academic standards, self respect, respect for others, and a great appreciation for life, God, and the arts. What a wonderful school! I have two children currently enrolled, and when the third is old enough, will also attend St. Pius. Mr. Maestranzi is the MOST dedicated school principal I have ever encountered.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
