No diversity. Administrators are bullies. Comments made by parents who are deeply hurt are not rectified but ignored. however the PTA does a good job of covering all the discrimination. Its a shame that they are not open to criticism. They gang up and give false witnesses against minorities who bring to light their mistakes.
Forward thinking leadership. Compassionate and caring teachers and administrators. Strong record of academic achievement. Enrichment opportunities for children who are advancing at a faster pace. Appreciation of diversity. Charitable and giving community. Competitive sports programs that focus on the well being of the child, not solely on winning games. Strong partnership with St. Jude Church. Financially stable. A leading example for other catholic schools. Twice recognized blue ribbon school. I can go on and on. Very fortunate to have my daughters as part of such a wonderful program.
We have moved a couple of times and have experienced a few different schools. St. Jude the Apostle Catholic School has by far been the best school our children have been to - public or private - both in the city of Atlanta and other cities/states. The administration and families were very welcoming to us. The academics are stellar, and their approach accommodates for creativity and individuality. Above and beyond academics, the school encourages spirituality, morality and overall being good stewards. The parents are involved, and understandably so because the school is responsible, forward-thinking and thriving. We have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the community and highly recommend the school.
St. Jude has been a wonderful school for our family. The school not only provides an excellent education in preparing kids for high school, it also provides a community atmosphere. The teachers and staff are kind and approachable, the parents are involved in making the school a better place, and the students are respectful to each other and adults.
St. Jude has everything you could want in your child's education: a nurturing environment, ample sports and extra-curricular activities, enrichment programs, and most importantly, kind and compassionate teachers and administrators. The administration is very forward-thinking in both curriculum and technology, and the sense of community that your family will feel at this school is amazing.
