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 excellent. I cannot imagine having chose another school. It ABSOLUTELY surpasses any education you would get in a public school. I have been here through the merge and stayed and it is just top notch. It is a small community and family and that speaks volumes to me. Im not sure what the problem is with the person below referring to the first grade teachers, but they are just wonderful. Both of them! And this year aids were a new addition to first grade, so this person should be thankful. This school does cost 3100 per student, but I feel it is worth every penny. If you are looking for a privateschol for your child to flourish and excel, this school is as close to a prep school as you will find! An the parent involvement is off the charts!

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 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.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
