    "In all honesty I am saddened by the negative reviews but I am also elated by those that are positive. Many people believe the rumors about our school that are simply not true. Yes, we come from a difficult history, but that has made our school better and we are growing and this school is helping form who we are. I could never imagine going to high school anywhere else."

    "Greatly disappointed in this school. Administration allows behavior that is not appropriate in any campus, private or public. I had to pull my child out due to lack of support and academic guidance. But sadly the worst of it all was the lack of empathy and sympathy. I DO NOT recommend this school what so ever and I have been teaching for the archdiocese for 24 years. Let us wake up and truly see what we are raising our children to be."

    "This Catholic school is in the midst of a rebirth under the leadership of an exceptional Principal and a dynamic and generous Board of Directors. The campus, previously known as all-female St. Matthias High School, is now christened as the coed St. Pius X- St. Matthias Academy. Enrollment is dramatically increasing, academic standards are rising, more AP courses are being offered, and extracurricular sports and clubs are expanding. While these are all wonderful changes, the warm, spiritually-centered, family atmosphere at the school hasn't changed. Faculty care about the students, and students bond and form deep friendships with each other. The Onward Scholars program nurtures promising students from challenging backgrounds. Students say they love being at school so much, they prefer it to being at home! :}"

    "WOW I hate seeing some of these negative comments because their not true!! St. Matthias is such an amazing school!! This year, with a new principal, it has really stepped up to high standards! The sisterhood is amazing. Teachers are unbelievably awesome, always trying to do what's best for us. Rules are strict, like they have to be. Academics are challenging but due able. I love my school and would love for anyone to come experience it!"
