Kids Learning

St. Pius Elementary School curriculum and instruction is aligned to national standards which meet and often exceed the highest standards in education. St. Pius explores and implements classroom structures that promote the best practices of teaching and learning in the areas of English Language Arts, Mathematics, Religion, Science, and Social Studies, with an integration of technology in each content area. Varied and flexible methods of delivery promote student engagement and enjoyment of learning.  We utilize research-based strategies and instructional resources geared toward developing a strong foundation and critical thinking and reasoning skills.   At St. Pius, our academic programs are focused on continuous improvement and addressing the needs of each and every one of our students. We focus on each child’s ability, learning style, growth, and success!

There are three areas of focus that allow St. Pius teachers to reflect on their instructional practices and each child’s growth.

  • The first focus is a data driven curriculum.  Results of standardized testing and other screening instruments used at SPES provide us with valuable information about how each student learns best and what his/her needs are.

  • The second focus is research driven programs. The amount of information available to educators is unimaginable and resources on learning styles and teaching methodologies are numerous.  We research and identify the programs we have available to us that will meet student needs.

  • The third curricular focus is professional development for teachers. It is a priority at St. Pius to provide on-going professional development so that our teachers can continue to be up-to-date on best practices in education that will address all of our students’ needs.

Early development of skills is essential for students to be successful so, to that end, programs assuring mastery of prerequisite skills in literacy and mathematics are in place beginning at the PreK level.  As students progress and move from grade to grade, many programs are available for them to continue to grow and learn in the way they learn best. 

It is our commitment to serve our students and provide the best possible education for them. Continued evolution of the St. Pius curriculum, in keeping with best practices, enables us to assure student success.  We love to see our students benefit from our commitment to them as they grow in knowledge and confidence.  Our goal is to instill confidence in our students, meet their academic needs through differentiated instruction, and help them realize that they truly are a gift!
