Very good school. St. Jude is on the cusp of greatness. But not there yet. The good. Excellent parent participation at all levels. Excellent parents, excellent schools. Math and English departments are strong. Special education is outstanding (huge improvement over the last 2-3 years). Service oriented school with required student service hours. The bad. Primarily, there is exclusion of students on the part of certain teachers and certain staff. A gross over emphasis on athletics. Lack of emphasis on the fine arts and technology. No teacher performance surveys.
