St. Pius X School's Full Profile



St. Pius X School says

St. Pius X School is a K-8 Catholic educational facility with more than 400 students located in Urbandale, Iowa -- a suburb of Des Moines. At St. Pius X School, is a growing community of students, kindergarten through 8th grade, who work and worship together. We provide for the education of the whole child not only by integrating strong curriculum instruction but also by teaching religious principles as a part of everyday learning. Building on the foundation of Catholic values established in the home, St. Pius X affords students the opportunity for further spiritual growth and the development of moral character. As a result of this philosophy, a child grows strong in the beliefs of the Catholic faith while achieving academic success. Student centered classrooms provide active participation for students through group and individual projects, cooperative learning, paired learning and mini-lab.



Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
