An awful experience. I was having doubts about the educational quality in the pre-k program so I requested evidence of the types of material they said they were teaching the children in my son s class. In my last correspondence I asked for a meeting with the educators and the principle to specifically discuss and see proof of what they were teaching but they never answered my request. How did they respond? They kicked my son out of the school because I was speaking with another parent about the issue. Because of this personal issue with me the principle decided to take it out on my 4-year-old son. If he had issue with me personally he could have asked to speak with me along with his teachers and gotten to the bottom of whatever my concerns or even banned me from the school property but he chose to get heavy handed and play his signing clause card immediately. Not very professional and really quite nasty. Catholic values are certainly lacking at the administration level here.
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.
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.
