    At first I loved St. Jude - until I started comparing it to other Catholic schools in town. VERY outdated building. No computers in classrooms. No playground. The gym is a joke. And unless you are in one of the few big families who attend or a member of the school board you don't have a voice. If your child is ahead expect no assistance at all. Resources are only for the kids who are behind so the school can raise its test scores. I can't wait to switch next year.

    school is nice. playground is the parking lot. like any other school some teachers are better than others some shouldnt be teaching at all but thats a very small percentage same everywhere. has its share of problems but overall a very nice school great location minus the playground.

    St. Jude is a wonderful school that teaches children so much about God and their Catholic faith. Plus the academics are rigorous yet gently and naturally taught. Faculty and staff are fantastic! St. Jude students are expected to excel and they rise to this challenge every year.

    I am not a parent but i went to St. Jude's from 1st through 8th grade. I highly recomend it. The teachers were so nice I still go back to vist some of my old teachers. The teachers were willing to work one on one with anyone that needed help before and even after school. The students are even nice and carring people.

    Fantastic school. Emphasizes a core in education with a strong background in religion. Teachers and staff are all top notch. Highly recommend.
