A great early childhood education program. My children are in kinder and pk3 and have grown so much academically and socially. The teachers are great and sister Krysia is a great asset. Office staff are on top of their game and very friendly. School events keep the parents engaged and my children love them. Would defiantly recommend. Financial aid is available so even if you think you may not be approved, apply anyways.

We are so blessed that our children are able to attend this wonderful school. The teachers and staff our so loving and caring, they really make the kids feel at home. The quality of education surpasses that of the public schools. My kids are getting such a well rounded diverse education. When my children were in public school the months of Oct. thru April were so focused on the state test to the detriment of the students. It is also such a blessing that my kids are constantly immersed in our Catholic faith! I especially love the fact that sister has the older students help out with the younger children. It teaches them responsibility and to have a service minded attitude. We feel so blessed thank you St. Pius V for allowing us to be a part of your family!

I am very happy about my daughter attending St. Pius since Pre- k. The teachers and school staff are very friendly and caring. I would recommend this school to everyone. My older kids had gone to public schools and I was so disappointed. When I found St. Pius and learned how they worked with the students and parents I knew my daughter belong there. This coming year my smallest daughter will join St. Pius. She is eager to go. I love St.Pius and hope to keep them there until eighth grade. My family is blessed to have my girls go to such a wonderful, caring, protective place. Where God is in everyone's heart. God bless St. Pius V Catholic School.

THIS SCHOOL IS A WONDERFUL AND AN AWESOME PLACE! THE TEACHERS ARE KIND AND ARE POWERFUL LEADERS. HERE, IT IS EVIDENT, THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT LIVES WITHIN THE COMMUNITY. HERE IS A PLACE TO LEARN AN\D SHARE IN PRAYER, LOVE, CARE, FAITH, CHARITIES, AND A LOT OF FRATERNITY AROUND ALL THE STUDENTS AND STAFF. THE PRINCIPAL IS A STRONG SPIRITUAL GUIDE AND BUILDS THE BASE SO THAT YOUR CHILD MAKES GOOD CHOICES. THE CHILD FINDS GOD IN ALL THE SUBJECTS THEY LEARN. EACH GRADE HAS A TIME TO DEVELOPED YOUR CHILD'S TALENTS, GOD BLESS YOU, AND PLEASE MAKE A GOOD DECISION FOR YOUR CHILD BY SAYING YES TO THIS SCHOOL.

They have a great teacher in preK 3, Mrs. M. My child came out of there knowing her ABC'S, her shapes, colors, numbers 1-20 in both English and Spanish. Teacher very loving and caring (the Aid too). A lot of parent/teacher communication. Each teacher have an updated web page with everything that's going on or coming up in school and church. I would HIGHLY recommend this school.

We pulled our children out too. The academics have fallen & what should have been covered in school is sent home as homework. We were doing homework for 3 hours every night! One of the books that was said to be new was a book I remember from 10 years ago.

I woulnd't ever send my grandchild here again.. This school is very unorganized and only care about money. We attepmted several time to talk to the prinicipal she never would see us. The day we took our grandchild out was the day we saw her and didn't say nothing to us.. I tell you as a grandmother this is a horrible school and I regret sending my grand baby thier. So please new parents if your considering sending your child here just skip this school.

To the parent of 10 years who feels the negative reviews are dishonest - I believe they are honest. In our 10+ years of experience, the academics have fallen & the students are not prepared for private or public high school, especially in writing and math. I believe St. Pius V caters to the below average students.

I find several reviews to be dishonest. As a parent for 10 years, I find the school to be moving forward in academics, technology and so much more. The school did not lose any staff last year except for downsizing due to economy. If the morale is so low, as stated by a parent why has all the staff stayed without a pay raise. The teachers do believe its a ministry and are willing to sacrifice for the children. Not all teachers are certified. And the school does follow the TCCED regulations and policies and is accredited. This year the school updated the curriculum with new math series, new spelling connectrions, new english series and finally new novel series. As in all orgtanizations, the principal is the one that makes the final decision in regards to HSA. I was oon the board and found the principal to be a good leader.Parent

This school has turned into the worst educational situation imaginable. Their academics are sliding. Comments, or Complaints are not welcome. We removed our children after 4 years. They are more conderned with fund raising than education. The principal, along with about half the staff need to be replaced.

The math and english courses are very basic. They are not required to have certified teachers. The area public schools are functioning at a higher level. The principal has full control of and makes all final decisions for the Home and School Association. Teacher morale is low and turnover is high. Parencompalin

The academic portion of the school has been greatly improved over the last three years. This along with a changing cultural environment, change in attitudes of staff members, has brought this school to another level. The principal, although dogmatic, has raise the standards and educational expectations.

Student-Teacher ratio is great. This is a small private school so parent involvement is almost a necessity. I believe this is what makes the school feel as if we are a big family. The educational quality of the school is very satisfactory. Extracurricular activities are limited to music and some sports. Overall I feel the school is satisfactory.
