Each day faculty and administration recognize the spiritual, academic, social, and cultural differences embodied in each student. We believe each child is special and capable of performance according to his/her individual abilities. In keeping with these beliefs, we work together to design and implement curriculum which leads each child down successful pathways of learning. Curriculum is designed around a specific perspective focused on the continuity, and consistency, and the relationship between academic objective and quality instruction. This comprehensive curriculum makes St. Pius V School a place where children find high expectations, a safe, healthy environment, and a warm, faith-filled atmosphere. Of great significance is the enrichment available to each child through sharing in our school and parish communities.
