Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

I wish more was being done for advanced students, for students who are ahead of the standard grade level.

Overall, St. Jude is a great place to send your children and provides a terrific, academic and Christ-centered education. My children have been at St. Jude's for several years now and we have only ever had one teacher with whom I was not happy. As with all schools, areas of improvement can be found. I wish there was a more traditional playground available, and yes, the school building is old. But what St. Jude may lack for in aesthetics it makes up for in many other ways. I agree with another reviewer in that St. Jude could be doing A LOT more to help students who are advanced--I understand the need for providing for those students who are behind, but they also need to consider the students who are ahead as well; St. Jude should be a place that educates students at ALL levels. Finally, St. Jude is good size-wise; it is not too small, nor is it too large. And my recommendation to parents who feel they don't have a voice is to become more involved--there are many volunteer opportunities available!

no play ground and its a toss up on the teachers some are fantastic some are sketchy at best. if you want a diverse school go somewhere else faculty is made up of parishoners and ex students and if you know the parish you will know what i mean. if your not part of the clique you will feel left out of any decision making.

At first I loved St. Jude - until I started comparing it to other Catholic schools in town. VERY outdated building. No computers in classrooms. No playground. The gym is a joke. And, unless you are in one of the few big families who attend or a member of the school board, you don't have a voice. If your child is ahead, expect no assistance at all. Resources are only for the kids who are behind so the school can raise its test scores. I can't wait to switch next year.

school is nice. playground is the parking lot. like any other school some teachers are better than others some shouldnt be teaching at all but thats a very small percentage same everywhere. has its share of problems but overall a very nice school great location minus the playground.

St. Jude is a wonderful school that teaches children so much about God and their Catholic faith. Plus the academics are rigorous, yet gently and naturally taught. Faculty and staff are fantastic! St. Jude students are expected to excel and they rise to this challenge every year.
