    Great small school in the Slate Belt. Students are people not numbers. Most teachers are willing to help students to be successful.

    Pius is a good school - smaller classes and family-oriented. The review below about the Principal is true - he is awful ! Thankfully Mr. I is leaving and we are hopeful of better leadership to come in the 2013-14 school year! Mr. I did a whole lot of nothing during the one short year he was here. The school could stand to replace a few of the teachers also. Academically our children's grades are fantastic they have lots of friends and are well-rounded. I would encourage anyone to consider this school for their child. You can't let a few flaws discourage you...the good out-weighs the bad!

    Pius is a terrible school. The children with the right last name will succeed all others will be ignored. The administration is awful This school is all about the money. There are a few good teachers. Mrs Pennington Sister Mary Teresa. Principal is awful. Save your money!!

    This school is horrible..all the kids that get thrown out of the public school wind up at Pius.The School is old and limited to only basic sports. THE ACADEMICS ARE NOT CHALLENGING!!! and not to mention parents coach most of the sports. I do not think parents should coach at this level.Financially the school is suffering and so does the student!! i encourage you to do your homework before enrolling your child. Bangor schools are rated much higher and offer more academically!!

    I went to Pius for freshman & sophomore year. In freshman year it was okay. Drama as is with every school was around. Sophomore year it was going downhill. There was a math teacher who could not teach would put material on exams that were not taught and picked favorites. If she liked you you passed. If she didn't she would pick at your tests. A lot of kids have this "I play sports so I am above you " attitude. Mr. A is strict I can tell you that from personal experience. There are some good teachers but the overall attitude of some people in this school is eh.

    Excellent school - light years ahead of any public school in the area with half the funds. Great staf kids are taught respect for themselves as well as others. Worth every penny. We drive 20 minutes past other 'worthy' schools to get there. Mr. Angeline runs a tight ship - everyone is treated fairly.

    Excellent school. Taught our daughter to respect. Her grades went up up up. Very proud of the staff and teachers. Keep up the good work. Way worth your money.

    Excellent school. Have been very pleased with the education our child has received. The teachers and staff care about the kids and know them personally. Very small school and well worth the money.
