St. Pius Difference
At St. Pius X Parish School we recognize the challenges and choices parents face when making a decision on where to begin the education of their children. To assist you in your decision process, we ask that you please consider the following benefits and welcome you to contact us anytime for a personal tour of the facilities and for any additional information you may need.
Faith Based Education
First and foremost, our Roman Catholic faith is woven through the fabric of every school day - from daily prayer to religion classes to sacrament preparation. Students in first through eighth grade attend an all-school Mass each week, with each classroom participating in a Mass at least twice each year. Our students also attend Reconciliation sessions throughout the year. Our 8th graders are designated the leaders of the student body and are encouraged to practice this leadership throughout the school year.
With an average class size of 20 to 22 students, your child can expect to receive personal attention from his or her teacher. St. Pius offers two classes at every grade level allowing your children to enjoy new friends each school year.
St. Pius X provides a learning continuim in technology education. Students begin technology class in Kindergarten and receive instruction through 8th grade. Each classroom has an LCD projector to assist in instruction, and most classrooms are equipped with a Smart Board and document camera. iPad stations are available in grades K-3 and student laptops are available in individual classrooms in grades 4-8. Online tools such as Discovery Education, Grolier Online Encyclopedia and other digital tools are used to enhance instruction and learning.
For those students who have been assessed with a specific learning difficulty, we have on staff a group of teachers trained to provide assistance. We also contract with the Mobile Therapy Centers of America to help in giving our students the resources they need to succeed in the classroom.
St. Pius X Parish School is proud to offer our Extended Care Program to parents needing child care extending beyond our regular school hours. We offer both before and after care to any St. Pius student enrolled in preschool through eighth grade in our full day program. Students in our half day program may utilize the before care program.
Our daily schedule includes 40 minutes of play time (outside, weather permitting), snack time, 30 minutes of quiet study time followed by free time. Free time activities vary from day to day and include crafts, gym, games, movies and/or computer time.
