St Pius is an awesome place for a child to feel safe and enjoy learning. My son went to Montessori school last year and did not learn anything and was so unhappy. He has been here for two months now and is thriving. He loves all the teachers and the structure. He has learned so much and has become quite a wonderful young man. It is so wonderful to see all the children come out of school so happy. St Pius method of academic programs and of teaching goes far and above because they do put your child first.

St. Pius X Regional School is an excellent elementary school. Two of our children attend 4th and 5th grade. The curriculum is challenging and engaging. There is a full science lab, several computer labs, iPads for use in classrooms, art room, gym, and large library. It is easy for parents to communicate with the teachers. There is ample opportunity to volunteer at the school. The children are given every opportunity to succeed in school. They learn respect for one another and learn about God's love for all. St. Pius offers numerous sports through CYO and clubs like STEM, Lego, Art, Chess, Scouts, and more. The administration keeps the parents informed about changes or future plans for the school through Home and School meetings as well as through the website. St. Pius X school is a real community.

I have not yet enrolled my child in this school; but I plan to. I will be relocating to the area in a few months. And, when I called St. Pius X to get information about the program and admitting my child midyear, the staff went above and beyond to provide information and accommodate me in every way possible. I was very pleased with the answers that I was given and how I was treated despite not yet being an official part of the St. Pius X School community. What an excellent start to a possible academic relationship!
