We are so thankful for St. Pius the Tenth School. It is a warm and caring environment with a well-rounded curriculum that has given my children a solid academic foundation. The Catholic faith, virtues and values the school develops in the students equips them for the challenges and demands of our ever changing world. I have had 3 children at the school and their education there has equipped my children for the academic demands of both high school and college. The school has been a partner in the process of developing my children both in their academics and faith. It is more than a school; it is a second home. A place where my children have felt safe and loved and where they have been given the solid foundation both academically and in their faith to succeed in life. It is a wonderful school and a great gift to the families and children that attend.

Our three children have attended St. Pius X School since Kindergarten. Our faith paid a large part in the school we were looking for but there is so much more to SPX. We feel a part of this closely knit community and that is priceless to me. They have received a wonderful education from caring teachers. My eldest now attends high school and was well prepared for Honors and AP classes. My children would probably say that the sports programs have been their favorite part of St. Pius:). We love this school and would make the same choice again for our children.

Exceptional academic standards rooted in Catholic values were criteria my husband and I felt were essential in choosing a school for our two son's education. St. Pius X Catholic School has been able to exceed this metrics and has also provided us an extension of our family through the families and teachers part of the St. Pius X community.

I am so thankful for all that St. Pius has been for my family. We have been there for 9 years and will be for another three. The SPX community is not only a school community, but a second family for us. My children have built strong relationships, morals and work ethics. They have each been involved in extracurricular activities in which they were both challenged and encouraged. It is a wonderful place with incredible people.

We have 3 children who have attended Saint Pius X Catholic School. Our oldest one - who attended SPX for grades K-8 - is currently a senior in high school, our second child - attended SPX for grades K-8 - and is currently a junior is high school, and our youngest is currently in 7th grade. The transition from SPX to high school very easy and both students were well prepared socially and academically for high school. The virtues taught, learned, and practiced while attending this awesome school are priceless!

We have had children at St. Pius X Catholic School since 2009 and will continue being SPX parents until our youngest graduates in 2026. The biggest compliment that I can give the school is that it feels like a second family for not only my children, but for our whole family. The administration and guidance department are excellent and always responsive, the academics are rigorous; the teachers have been very compassionate with my children but always expected their best, and we've enjoyed participating in a variety of sports programs even though my children are not overly athletic. There is something at SPX for everyone - including a wonderful drama program and after-school and extra-curricular opportunities. Their parish is also amazing and we love being part of the SPX family.

St. Pius has been fantastic for my children. I love the small class size, and the whole school is so warm and inviting.

In an age where the time demands of being a full time parent - trying to do the right thing in raising your child- it is a blessing to know that this school helps support educating your responsibility within a catholic perspective so you can be more confident that your choice as a parent to send your offspring to St Pius X is/was the right decision. A very nice facility , caring administration , attentive teachers. What more can a parent ask for.

Decades ago private schools could have been accused of being elitist. You had to have money to attend. The student populations were fairly homogeneous. Fortunately that has changed.
