The success of a school is reflected by the faculty. Pius is top notch as far as Teachers who go the extra mile to give the personalized care that you would expect from a private school. They are underpaid compared to Public school teachers, yet dedicated and energetic. The value of any school can

However, I have always felt that Pius is unique in providing cultural diversification and allowing students the same freedom of choices in curriculum and scheduling that they will have in College. After going to the conferences regularly, I always walk away impressed at how well each Teacher knows my children, and how detailed they were in discussions with their progress. I would highly recommend this school to someone who wants their child to experience a "real world" environment and be allowed the opportunity to follow his/her talents and academic interests. For a private school, their is certainly no "snob appeal" at Pius that sometimes exists at others. Read less

This school is simply amazing. The TAC program and the modular scheduling is a huge reason we chose it.

I am a current student at Pius XI High School. This school is not worthy of a two, it is worthy of a -57839. This school is great in terms of education BUT some teachers are incredibly disrespectful, rude, and take advantage of their authority. Other teachers are great but they're more bad teachers than

The ladies in the main office are amazing but some of the rules are unnecessary. I know someone who was put on probation for being two minute late 9 times. In conclusion, this school is a force.

If you like teachers who blatantly favor students who are star athletes, regardless of their academic ability: this is the school for you. There are some nice teachers, and then you have the arrogant ones. Unfortunately, the arrogant teachers outnumber the ones who truly love to teach, and love their

I would have to agree with the negative reviews on this site. My spouse graduated from this school some 30 years ago & absolutely loved it.
