The school was great when I attended in the 80's and has only become better with time! Solid Catholic fundamentals along, great academics and phenomenal teachers.

Pius XI Catholic High School gave me the best possible high school experience for me personally. The staff is incredible, and the students are extremely welcoming. At Pius XI, teachers and faculty engage with their students to form a wonderful relationship. Faith and Catholic values are encouraged and well-shown at this great institution. Pius XI has been a great experience for me. I have learned so much from their strong academics, compassionate teaching and values, and will carry out what I learned into my future. I am very proud to say that I go to Pius XI Catholic High School. It is very different from most, being known nationally for their fine arts department, being one of the most diverse high schools in Wisconsin, and being a place that I can call home.
I wanted to attend Pius XI High School because of my interest in the arts, specifically drama. After applying and being accepted at several high schools, Pius was the best fit. I enjoyed the TAC (Teacher Advisor Contact) rooms because it was considered my “home away from home.” The instructors were also known as our TAC parents who made sure we had a pleasant experience at Pius. There was a mixture of the grade levels in the rooms. The one thing I would like to change is updating the school. Reason being, most of the classrooms do not have air conditioning, and some of the rooms were hot and stuffy during the spring months. Secondly, due to the location of the school, there is no space dedicated to outdoor sports. For example, when I was on the tennis team, we had to drive to a tennis court.
