An amazing place! Strong faculty, a tremendous leader, and a vibrant and diverse community. I am so happy my family decided to become part of this wonderful school. We keep getting better! I'm proud to say that St. Jude has had 4 valedictorians in the past 2 years and will host its first Junior Honor Society induction ceremony on March. We are...St. Jude!!

Math and science are very weak at this school, compared with some public schools that have much better teachers and lower teacher/student ratio. Catholic and moral values are very strong. My kids had to struggle at a public high school due to poor math and science basis from St Jude.

I cannot express enough what a great decision it was to transfer my kid to this school. The whole family was warmly welcome; he was challenged way more that in his previous school and difficult moments are handled appropriately. Great parental involvement and excellent communications between staff and families help, too.

I am a parent of two children that are attending St Jude. They started in the Kindergarten and have been thriving ever since. I attended the school myself and returned with my children because of the close family atmosphere, along with the commitment to education. The staff and parent's dedication to the school is amazing and continues to hold true to our motto of "CATCH OUR SPIRIT" !!! We are ..... St. Jude and we definitely have spirit !!!!!!

St. Jude is a wonderful caring community. My 2 daughters have both graduated from here and have gone on to do wonderfully in high school. There is a good combination of discipline, service to others, compassion, caring, and fun. I couldn't have hoped for a better elementary or middle school for my children. We have been happy with the curriculum and the teachers.

My school is St. Jude Regional Catholic School. Our principal, Glenn Benjamin, is leading the school to the top!

St. Jude Regional Catholic School is not only known for it's academic standards and it's wonderful teachers but also the way the students are loved and cared for. You only have to walk into the doors and you can feel the warmth of St. Jude Regional Catholic School. It is a school that truly cares about the whole child and their familes. It is an atmosphere unique to St. Jude. I strongly feel that the love and caring the students receive here are just as important as the strong academics. I would highly recommend this school.

I am more than pleased with my child's experience with St. Jude, and my own experience as a parent, as well! The teachers and staff are always friendly and helpful. There are many opportunities to get involved -- St. Jude is a very active school. I love that my child is learning in an environment that helps to build up her Catholic faith, and no other elementary school in the Archdiocese is as technologically advanced as St. Jude.

St. Jude Catholic School in Rockville is a wonderful, welcoming environment for my four children. Whether it is the middle school, or the elementary school, my kids are as happy as can be there. I love the fact that they are able to flourish and play in a safe, respectful and structured environment. There are caring, qualified and dedicated teachers who supervise the children, and parent participation is always welcome. What this means for me as a mother is that my children to love going to school each morning and couldn't wait for summer vacation to end. It gives me great peace of mind to know that the school I take them to each morning is a trusted partner in the raising of my children.

St. Jude Regional Catholic School is a happy, warm, safe environment for learning. The teachers are all fantastic and are the cutting edge of the latest teaching techniques. The academics are high and St. Jude has a strong Catholic Identity. When one walks into the school one will see happy engaged learners that put God first in all areas of learning and play.

In my third year as a parent at St. Jude, and the growth and success are truly amazing! The faculty have gone above and beyond for my child. I could not have asked for a stronger community, or a more excellent school. (In the words of our principal), We are.....St. Jude!

Before my child started kindergarten this year, I visited all the area schools. This one stood out from the beginning as I observed the students behavior and interactions with staff and each other. A few weeks into the year and I am convinced we made the right choice. My child loves the school and we could not ask for a better teacher and principal.

Not good. My kid did poorly in the High School Placement Test last year. I will not recommend this school to another parent.

Wonderful school. My oldest graduated two years ago and she was very well prepared for high school (far ahead of her peers from other schools). My younger two are there now and doing very well. St. Jude is a very caring environment with a great principal and staff.

Two generations of family went to that school, and I'm planning on sending my son there to make three!

Leadership is outdated. Strong curriculum, safe environment. Parents are involved academically and in all facets of the school. Extended Day care is boring.

The school has excellent academics and a strong work ethic is instilled in the children. Children are well-prepared for high school. A very safe environment for the children with negligble discipline problems. Also, a great parent community.

Wonderful school with caring faculty. A place that loves your child and is not only concerned with academics but is concerned about every aspect of your child.

A terrific, caring school with high academics, few discipline issues and a mission to build responsible adults. School leadership is a bit tired and mired in 'that's the way we've always done it' attitude.
