I switched my son to St.Pius this year and its the best thing we have ever done!! Hes a changed person, the teachers really care about the kids unlike other area schools. We are now planning on sending our other kids there also.
My son is a freshman this year & he loves this school. The kids are truly outstanding in character. Because it is a small school, students have a great opportunity to shine. There is a place for everyone..sports, clubs,groups. At larger schools, it's difficult to even make it on a sports team..there are just too many kids & not enough positions. Here at Pius, everyone can play! Acedemics are outstanding with many honors courses & AP courses as well. well worth your investment!
I was a student at St Pius X High School. I found myself a person deeply in touch with God and my studies. The teachers were great! They cared about what was going on at school and at home, but the environment was just as ugly as any other school. It had sex, drugs, and drama, and what made it worse is that it was so small that the drama was broadcasted like a tv show. If your child is an individual who doesn't fit the mold adjusting to St. Pius will be a large one. However In my time there was truly prepared for college, and the music teacher is well known and respected. He's one cool cat.
St. Pius X in Festus has provided all 4 of my kids with a superior education (to public Schools) while at the same time providing many opportunities to participate and excel in sports, all while developing their soul in a safe environment!
