St. Pius X High School Reviews

I loved my time at St. Pius X High School! For the most part I had amazing and intelligent teachers, that really made an effort to get to know every student so as to cater to their educational needs. It is a small school having around 400 students total, 100 per grade, which created a very accepting and open community, free from bullying. Students and faculty are very welcoming, and the school not only more than prepares its students for college, but also instills within its students morals, ethics, and principles, as it is a highly respected and regarded Catholic School. Only drawbacks, sometimes it can feel a little too small, making socializing difficult, but overall this was not a reoccurring situation.

St. Pius has very good academics, and I feel very well prepared for college. Almost all the teachers are very helpful, and are well equipped for their job. Minor problems that St. Pius X high school has include: little diversity and few programs. St. Pius is very small so there is a lack of diversity. Freshman year there was little to no diversity. As I progressed through school, the diversity has increased. Due to our smallness, there is a lack of programs. Hopefully in the future the school will choose to make new programs available. On a positive note, we have just recently added a ping pong club, and a robotics club. Overall Saint Pius is a spectacular school. The minor problems that it has currently are already gradually being resolved.
Saint Pius X High School in KCMO is a fantastic community and academically fit for all students. The faculty and staff are truly caring and challenge all students to be the absolute best they can be. This school is also very faithfilled and offers countless activities for all likings! SPX, home of the Warriors, is outstanding...they also have the absolute best cookies you will ever have!
