As a parent of two kids I couldn't say enough wonderful thing about St. Pius? The teachers truly care about their students. The encouragement by the entire staff to be active members of both their school and community is remarkable. Kids are held accountable and are pushed to achieve their best in a loving environment. If you want your kids to be challenged and have a love for Christ St Pius should be at the top of your list.

My daughter is currently a junior at Saint Pius. From my point of view this school is the best kept secret in Albuquerque; strenuous college-prep academics, plus a truly values-based education, all at half the price of the other private high schools in town. I encourage all parents of all faiths to check it out - it is absolutely the best investment I have ever made in my child.
