Saint Pius X High School Reviews

169 reviews

Pius is a great school in terms of academic preparedness. Most students leave Pius and breeze through their first two years of college. However, past that Pius gets a bit tricky.
The administration and the way they go about things are quite problematic and discriminatory. Most of the teachers are good, however there are some very, very bad ones. The sports teams are not the best and the athletic director is atrocious.
There have also been major money issues and concerns with Pius that are dismissed or ignored. Safety has gotten better this past year when the school added gates and a guard shack. School spirit is extraordinarily low. Events at Pius tend to run on the horrible side. Administration makes it extremely stressful to even enter events by subjecting females to harsh, and often times, uncomfortable dress code checks.
On the bright side though, the lunches are fantastic! They also just recently got Chrome books for ever student to integrate technology into the classroom.

Both of our daughters have gone on to becoming college grads who are thriving in life! Pius is such an amazing community where kids actually love going to school and attend the many activities and sporting events. Campus is amazing former university site, but should have better facilities for their amazing sports teams. Home football games and and a real track would complete things, though both programs win without. Tuition is about half that of other ABQ private schools, and you get more in return! A $12,350 no brainer decision. And you don't have to be Catholic, much to the chagrin of some Mel Gibson Catholics out there, but Pius is called to educate, while Church is called for the faith journey. Best kept secret for ALL faiths in ABQ!
St. Pius High School is a school with great academics, athletics, and extra-curricular activities. The community at St. Pius is also very inclusive and caring;you truly feel like family when you're at school! While there are some things that need to be improved, such as some class organization and AP classes, overall St. Pius has a lot to offer for any student attending.
