    "This school (including parents) are very welcoming. It has such a warm atmosphere. The administration, teachers and staff are wonderful. I was so proud my child attended a school where their champion basketball team had true sportsmanship in every single game instilled by their intelligent coaches."

Come visit us and learn how we can partner with your family!"

    "My son was new St. Jude this school year and he has fit in easily. The staff at St. Jude and the families have been welcoming. I am so impressed with how well my son has been taught about his faith. St. Jude does an excellent job in teaching about the ways of Jesus Christ. I am a teacher in a different school and I have been most impressed impressed with how organized the school is run and how orderly the children are as they walk the halls. There are many opportunities for parents to be involved and to volunteer. The academics at St. Jude are rigorous too. I highly recommend sending children to this Catholic school. Children will leave St. Jude with a strong Catholic idenitity and will be well prepared for high school and beyond."

    "I am a parent who has had 2 children graduate from the school. Was it expensive? Yes, but it was worth every penny as I see both kids excel academically and socially in high school. Did I agree with every decision made at the school? No, but for the most part, I was happy with decisions made. St. Jude will probably trail some of the public schools in amenities but the way my kids were pushed to excel in the class room put them in the position to succeed in high school. You are not part of a "system" that has to churn out kids unprepared for their next level of education. You are expected to give your best academically every day. The most recent valedictorian of Providence H.S. as well as 3 of the top 10 scores on the most recent Providence entrance exam were St. Jude grads. I can't believe the below comment about the athletics and extra curricular activities. St. Jude has a not-cut policy for athletics, giving kids who couldn't make a team in the public schools, a chance to play a sport they might not get to play in the public schools. And to this day, I still enjoy socializing with parents of my children's former classmates."

    "I will premise this point with (I am not a teacher) but a parent who has two children at St. Jude now. I am however on the school board so I have some insight into the education, tuition costs and challenges any school faces now with the economy the way that it is. This school is superior to the NL schools an that is a fact, just look at class sizes alone, or how about the Kindergarten program which is all day compared to NL's three hour at best program. I also need to address the partying, drinking comments, it is called socializing, community which any intelligent person knows you do not get at a public school so why even compare the two, it is embarrassing that the person who said this doesn't understand that at a public school you do not need to have fundraisers. It does not need to be a constant competition and bad mouthing, it is your choice to where you send your kids to school, sending your kids is a sacrifice you make as a family if you live in this area with the taxes being so high already but the fact is that St. Judes is a bargain if you truly care about your kids education and faith development."
