School Reviews

I wouldn''t think of sending my children to any other school. Pius is a very unique small Catholic school that offers great academics, small class sizes, and a family friendly environment. The faculty is always available to assist students after school if they need any extra help. Pius also provides a safe environment for students to practice their faith. Students attend Mass regularly and are able to use our school chapel if needed. There is a Priest on staff who offers his time to the children. There are also many clubs, sports, and activities for students to be a part of. Football, basketball, forensics club, student senate, drama club, music, photography, just to name a few. If you are looking for a change, I highly recommend checking out Pius X High School. It is a great school!

Great family atmosphere with top notch educational opportunities. My children have thrived in this environment. The new principal has the right priorities : education, spirituality, community and sports. Great approach to a well rounded student in a family atmosphere.
