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.
St. Jude is a really great school and always has the kids come first. The teachers do whatever they can do to help the children. If they need extra help, there is always someone to help. St. Jude is one of the best Southside Catholic school around.
Blue Ribbon School of Excellence again! Very student oriented, with strong leadership. No student left out, is for the most part true. I would not send my children to any public school. The discipline and respect for others that they are given and taught is priceless.
