For the tuition you pay here, you would think you would somewhat get your monies worth, but it's not the case. School is very technologically behind, as for most of the academics. There are maybe four teachers throughout the entire school that are "good" teachers. This school is in desperate need of an administration overhaul, as it is not interested in bettering the educational journey for the students. Too many parents overly involved and not in the best of ways, which should also have limitations placed. There is nothing even close to an open door policy as far as concerns. There is a "we don't want to hear it" policy. Bottom line, there needs to changes made, and it doesn't look like it's happening anytime soon, which can explain for the mass exiting of families over the last few years.

Staff does absolutely nothing about bullying and could care less about the students, only their paychecks. The school is also terrible academic wise. If you want to see your child thrive, OLOH is not the place.

I have been at Our Lady of Hope since 2005 when it was called St. Jude's. Anyway, this school was clearly the worst nine years of my life. Yes, I have met some good people, but the majority of the school are stuck-up and rude. Since 5th grade, I've struggled with social anxiety because a girl teased me and when I told the teachers, they didn't do anything about it. In the beginning of the year, we all sign a student contract saying we won't be a bully or get bullied. Well since 6th grade I have been physically bullied as well as cyber-bullied. When I tell teachers, they just ignore it. The teachers are also rude, disrespectful to the children, tyrant-like, and use their power to advantage. Now there are some teachers with good potential but not many. I would not suggest this school to anyone. I'm in 8th grade, also know as the best year. Haha, that's funny. Because of the bullying and stress, I've had to attend therapy. The school isn't a good environment for children to learn and grow. They take away the student's right to speak. So the point is this school is not a place of recommend sending your child/children.

Let me just start with if I could give this school 0 stars I would but I can't. So my 9 years at that school were HORRIBLE. I would not recommend this school to my worst enemy that's how horrible this school is. Let me just start with the staff. The 6,7,8th grade teachers are AWFUL except a couple. And the school says they "don't allow bulling and if there is we will put a stop to it" well I was bullied 5 years there and the principles and staff did nothing to help me, it caused me mental and physical damage. I went into a very deep depression, not just because of the bulling but because of the teachers. If you do something wrong instead of correcting you they talk behind your back. They also do not make ANY adjustments for children with special needs. I myself have depression,ADHD, anxiety, the list goes on. My parents have talked to them countless times and they do noting about it. So if you really want to send your child here after this you are waisting your money when the GT or TWP public schools at 100 times better and deal with the major issues. So I hope this changed your mind about Our Lady of Hope school.

My children transferred into Our Lady Of Hope from another school in the area, and I cannot say enough wonderful things about it! We have all been warmly welcomed by the administration, teachers, office staff, parents and fellow students. During the summer my children were assigned challenging and meaningful summer work to prepare for the year. The school clearly holds high, yet reasonable academic standards. Communication from the teachers and administrators is excellent! I am impressed by the school's efforts to keep the children safe and the building itself secure. My children's teachers all go above and beyond for their students. I am SO happy with OLOH!!

I am also a former student, and I'll never forget how miserable I was while I attended school here. What I went through while I went here still bothers me to this day and I am now in college. I would not recommend this school to any family for many reasons. The staff does nothing about bullying although they claim it will not be tolerated. I was tortured for YEARS by the majority of my classmates and my mother even brought it to the principal's and teachers' attention numerous times, yet nothing was once done about it. Even some of the teachers purposely picked on me during lessons. Very unprofessional and disrespectful. The overall atmosphere is cliquish as someone stated below, and just plain awful. I eventually ended up transferring to the Washington Township school district and it was the best decision my family and I have ever made. Better education, better atmosphere, better people. Please save yourselves the money and trouble and look into a different school.

As a former student I should say that this school was terrible. I had the worst 5 years of my life here. I left this school 3 years early. This school made me almost go to summer school, as they would say, because I was failing religion class. Also, you have to pay Thousands of dollars to go here and it isn't just worth it. If you live in the area and want a good school, try the Gloucester Township public schools.

This school is now called Our Lady of Hope and i love it!! I go there now and it is amazing! the school offers electives in 6th 7th and 8th grade and specials for the rest. The teachers truly care about the students. The tuition is about 3,000 per student but it's worth it. I have heard from people who transferd to public school out of OLH and they say how easy the work is at public schools compared to OLH. My two brothers gradulated from this school and are doing great. My oldest brother is being offered at least 10,000 academic money for college. My other brother went into Honors Algebra II as a freshman. I fully recomend this school.

I went to this school when i was a child and had a wonderful experience. My children now go here too. I am so proud of this school. They have excellent teachers and tons of Electives. I believe that the school def. prepares the children for high school. I would recommend this wonderful school to anyone.

go to this school, now called Our Lady Of Hope School, and I suffer each and every day. First of all, it cost close to $10,000 a student, yes 10,000 bucks for each child. Second, the teachers have no respect for the student's personal lives. They work each and every child to death. Each student will spend well over 4 hours on homework each night. And if you children have a disability, forget it. A student in my homeroom has ADD, and has a grade average of 60. 60. The principals are disrespectful and plain mean, assigning students from every grade, including kindergarten, a 3000 word essay on a random subject (e.i "shoe size in Africa"), just for whispering in the hallway. I have suffered for years in this school, and I don't want it to happen to anyone else.

I went to this school growing up. i am now attending my first year medical school in fall of 2009. I frequently think about how St. Judes shaped me into the person I am today. My two older sisters also attended here. The oldest is not a pediatrician and the second is attending law school.

I graduated in 05' and when I got to high school I was completely unprepared. The school was very cliquish and doesn't accept anyone with individuality or children of divorced parents.

My children are flourishing in this excellent academic and spiritual environment. The families are very involved and the students feel safe and secure at school. I would recommend this school for other involved and caring families.

My children have attended St Jude's Regional School since 2004 and I love it. I have loved all the teachers my children have had I feel they really care about their students. My children are so happy when they come home from school.

I graduated from St. Jude's Regional School a few years ago. I am a Junior in High School. I felt confident while going into High School, but once classes started, I began to realize, with some other alumni, how unprepared we were. We did not have labs, our computer class was unsatisfactory, and we didn't really feel like we were prepared for High School. I found many teachers picked favorites and picked least favorites and the family kind of atmosphere was not there. The rest of the alumni and I from that year, felt as though we were neglected and if it weren't for our 8th grade teacher, who has left the school since then, we would be failing High School. Despite being unprepared, we worked together and actually developed our selves into great students who have been inducted into the Nation Honors Society. I do not recomend this school

St. Jude's School provides a wonderful academic and spiritual education. The teachers and staff are very caring and nurturing. There is a tremendous school spirit from both the student and alumni. At St. Jude's you are treated like family. When considering a school, look no further than St. Jude's.

Excellent school with dedicated and outstanding teachers! This school is providing my children with a superb education , spiritual guidance and a great sense of community and belonging amongst their peers. If you're searching for a Catholic school, don't overlook this one!!!
