School Notes

  • St. Pius V Catholic School is a community dedicated to the spiritual, intellectual, moral, aesthetic, physical, and social education of each student. In partnership with parents, the primary educators of their students, we encourage intelligent choices, responsible actions, and active participation in the Catholic Faith. We believe:
  • Each student is a unique creation of God.
  • In the Catholic Church and Her teachings.
  • In providing a challenging academic program that will prepare students for the future.
  • That parents' active participation is essential to school community growth.
  • The school is an integral part of parish and community life.
  • In developing social justice.
  • In tolerance and acceptance within our diverse community.
  • In building and promoting self-esteem.
  • In preparing our students to respond to the multiple challenges of the future. The priests, administration, faculty, and staff will awaken the child to a life of Christian Service. The life of Christian Service, which we model, encompasses academic skill, moral virtue, and social responsibility. Our primary goal is to proclaim the kingdom of God and, through our actions, reveal the message of Christ to the community.

School Reviews

St. Pius V school is the best gift you can give your children. Not only do they still teach the basics, i.e. phonics, grammar, basic math, etc. while incorporating technology, they will need to succeed in life. The entire teaching staff along with Father Paw, Dr Bravo, and Mrs. Holguin is involved on a daily basis with each individual child, helping them to become well rounded and firmly grounded individuals. This school is truly a gift from God. We as parents are beyond grateful to have our family be a part of the St. Pius V school community.
