I moved to Montville for the schools. I sent my child to St Pius for preschool and decided to continue his education there. The school is amazing. Sister June is a wonderful principle. She makes sure every child counts.

Our children are thriving at St. Pius X School in Montville. From the moment we enrolled our children in St. Pius X School, we knew they would not only learn, but they would be loved and well taken care of. In addition to a superior curriculum and Humanities program, the students attending St. Pius X School are taught respect for all people, the value of family and community, integrity, and are endowed with self-esteem and strong character. We feel that the staff, at all levels, demonstrates an incredible commitment to the children and their well-being. They lead by example and embrace family participation in the students learning experience. We encourage families to visit St. Pius X School and see all that it has to offer!

My children have attended St. Pius X School since PreK4, and they are now in 6th & 3rd grades. I love this school! Our outstanding principal, Sister June, sets a tone of love and acceptance which is felt throughout the school. I am always amazed at how the teachers manage to find the best in my children, and accept their quirks without issue. And I love how, in this Catholic school, religion/values are worked into discussions throughout the week. Religion isn't just something you think about on Sunday morning. This is an incredible school where 'you are loved first and taught second.' But the academics are also stellar, in some cases a full grade level ahead of the public schools.

My daughter went to St. Pius PK3 & PK4. The school is exceptional, she absolutely loved it. She is on the shy side but felt welcome and loved - and had the opportunity to participate in school Christmas shows, gym, music, library and art and forged many friendships with both the boys and girls. The school is also academically orientated and I feel she is more than ready to start Kindergarten in Sept (Valley View, Montville). If for some reason I am unhappy with the public school system, I would have no hesitation sending her to back St. Pius.

I think the school is very good. But tuition keeps going up and up.

My son is in the PreK program and is at a higher level than the kindergarden students in my public school. I am in a neighboring town and am unhappy with the schools. My wife and I researched area schools and couldn't find anyone that had sent their children there that were not completely satisfied with the school overall. I know people in that town that would rather send them to St Pius than the public schools. I think that is saying a lot since the Montville public schools are some of the best in the state. I am glad that my son will continue in kindergarden next year and my daughter will be transfering from the public school to St Pius for 2nd grade. The principle and teachers are caring people that have the children's best interest at hand. St Pius is teaching at or above the public schools.

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.
