My daughter is now in her second year of pre-K. I have to say the teachers and staff are exemplary. The cost associated with the annual tuition is more than economical and the kids are taught on a Michigan education based curriculum. I have recommended this school to multiple people and would continue to do so.

My children have been blessed to attend St. Pius. The teachers and principal know and care for each child. I also like how they collaborate to challenge and engage all students. The teachers strive to make each class/course better, providing additional on-line support and project-based learning to help students think outside-the-box. My older children have been very successful in high school, scoring at the very top of their class each semester. They know this is due to the strong foundation set up at St. Pius and their continued hard work. My children currently at St. Pius love this school. They love their teachers and take the caring atmosphere for granted. I appreciate the emphasis on Catholic values and service, as it supports what we do at home. The people at St. Pius are a family. We work hard together to make our school great. It is nice to have a great place for your kids to learn and develop life-long friendships with other families. I would highly recommend St. Pius to all families.

After touring several area schools, we truly felt St. Pius was the best choice for our son. The leadership, technology, and academics hit all of our target points. The families, staff, and volunteers are also very welcoming. G Bidari

This is my child's 1st yr here. She loves it. After feeling 'unwelcome' at another school, the students and staff went out of their way to let her know she was part of a 'family' with them. Staff and students are WONDERFUL!!!

I think the dynamic of the school is wonderful. Kids that had trouble fitting in other places found a home among the friendly, welcoming children at St. Pius. I can't imagine a students in other schools going to such lengths to make sure everyone feels welcome. The sports programs stress good sportsmanship, while playing quite competitively. A great place to be!

when I started St. Pius in 1999 the school had great programs and everyone was really involved. The quality of the school has really gone DOWN-HILL ! My eighth grade teacher was fantastic but i saw the school slowly loosing it's Catholic morals. Children swear when their teachers walk out of the class rooms, smart children are outcasted beacause they think it is 'un-cool' to have brains. pray for this school that it may grab hold of what is left of a once thriving family.

St.Pius is an amazing school. I have two children that thrive in it's loving halls. The administration, teachers, and staff provide a personalized, challenging curriculm while educating the whole child. Spititual growth, academic excellence, teamwork, good sportsmanship, and service are expected from every child. During my busy work day I know that my children are safe, loved, and learning. A++++ school! I would highly recommend St. Pius School to any parent that desires a special school for their child to grow and learn.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
