We are new family coming from another private school. St. Jude is a wonderful loving and caring place. The faculty, staff and administration are first rate and truly care about the children and their education. This was the best decision we have ever made

This school has a wonderful, loving, caring environment along with god academics. My oldest three graduated from St Jude, and from 14 years experience with the school I have seen the exceptional attention given to creating a no bully, highly accepting campus. Kids are encouraged from the earliest grades to make it their business to be sure a kid sitting alone is noticed and paid attention to. The older kids are given younger kids to mentor and there is a lot of activity between them. As far as academics two of my kids have graduated college with honors, one is still attending college and exceptionally talented.

This is response to the post on July 20, 2009. You only gave three stars due to the academics not being great, but your use of the English language is awful. Your post should be taken with a grain of salt.

It's okay, but the academics isn't that great.

We feel so blessed to be a part of St. Jude. The staff, from the principal to Mr. Mike (whom the kids can thank for keeping the campus in good running condition) are very involved with the children and their daily activities. My children wake in the morning excited to go to school and face the challenges the day will bring. They are very excited about learning and always come home wanting to tell me what their day was like. I feel like our choice to send our children to school there was the best decision we could have made for their future. God bless St. Jude and all who are involved in making it the great school that it is.

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 makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
