The best decision we've made for our childrens' education is to send them to St. Pius X Catholic School in Dallas. We have experienced extremely positive interaction with staff, teachers, clergy, parents and volunteer coaches. If you live in Dallas, you can not go wrong sending your kid here.

I have 3 children attending St. Pius X and am very happy with the school. The academics are at a much higher standard than what my kids experienced in the public school system. There are plenty of extra-curricular activities available for the kids, but the majority of those start for grade 5 and up. Parent involvement is strongly encouraged and I noticed that it helps. The other students there are very courteous to when I'm on campus..."yes sir', "hello mr. xyx", etc. This is the first year that my kids are attending the school and I feel I've made the right decision to enroll them at SPX. It is a very good return on my investment.

Amazing school with a great history. Challenging faith based curriculum, dedicated teachers, excellent facilities. I can't say enough about this place. Generations of families have gone and are continuing to go to St. Pius X.

St Pius is a fabulous school. My kids have gone from kindergarten through 8th grade. The school has such a strong community of teachers, parents and administrators who care about the students. I would recommend this school to anyone. The education is top quality, and it truly preparded my kids for college-preparatory high school.

I transferred all of my children from public school and found that St. Pius was an excellent preparation for High School and College. They gave me what the public schools were missing for me...accountability and responsibility. Each of my boys participated in several extracurricular activities ranging from Band to sports. Parent involvement is high and it has continued to be a community for my family.

I have been really happy with this school. I have a 3rd and Kindergarten child attending this school. I feel they are well prepared each year as they continue their education. The teachers are always easy to reach and know their curriculum when asked a question. Teacher/Parent communication is their top priority along with the student learning. Their standard of learning is always higher than most schools I have seen. You are the best!

I have had children in this school for 17 years and I just enrolled a kindergartener. I will have children in this school for a total of 26 years. I love IT!!! The teachers are first rate, there are many wonderful programs and they really work with the slower learner.

Strong efforts to mold young people into moraly strong and well prepared for high school. Unfortunately many well meaning parents want to influence policy without putting in an effort to be part of the community.

The school is very disappointing. There is no communication with the staff there. All they care about is the money and are closed minded to ideas for the school. It seems to me that with the amount of money being paid to the school that they would have their priorities strait which should be the children. All they see are dollar signs and are not up to par in their educational skills for schooling. There principal is very closed minded when it comes to other activities and clubs for the children.Apparently SPORTS is better and more fun! All they do is fund raising and none of the money goes to what the money claims to be for. This saddens me because the tuition goes up every year and nothing gets resolved or improves. It is all promises, promises, promises, and nothing. Please think twice before sending your children there!

This school seems to be collapsing into chaos without good leadership. Tuition has gone up and yet, teachers are defecting and parents as well as students are unhappy. The principal seems very rigid and closed minded and can t entertain any points of view other that her own. It s very sad to see the direction that the school has taken. My kids won't be back next year.
