My two boys attend ASA and I am incredibly happy with the positive experience they have gained so far. The teachers are amazing and they are very dedicated to the children s success academically, socially and spiritually. The individualized attention my boys get is priceless and the community support is second to none. ASA is an amazing school!

We moved our child from a local public school to St. Pius. It was the best decision we could have made. The biggest difference I have seen between the schools is that St. Pius is constantly challenging the students while holding them responsible for their work. The teachers are also extremely supportive of the students.

Saint Pius X has exceed all of our expectations! Academically the standards are set high. They are dedicated to helping each student reach their fullest potential. The community and support is second to none. It is so much more then a text book education and our children love it!

As a former student, I would rate SPX as a 5/5. This school has helped me get into the top high school in Portland and in much of Oregon, Jesuit High School. The teachers here were very good and taught me alot of thing without much difficulty.

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.
