Our Take: St. Jude's Academy
St. Jude’s is, notably, an IB world school which, as of September 2018, will be offering the entire continuum, from the primary years through the high school grades. That’s a draw for the families that enroll here, principally because of the strength of the academic program and the international focus that it allows. The IB was developed to educate toward a facility with the core curriculum—language and numeracy—as well as interpersonal communication, creative engagement with others, and an empathetic view toward the diversity within the global setting. St. Jude’s does all of that, including the values piece, which often isn’t perhaps stressed as much whenever people discuss the IB. The school promotes an understanding of our place in the world, as citizens, in the awareness that other people, of course, are citizens, too, just like us. The culture of the school is close-knit, with small class sizes and an very safe, family feeling throughout. It’s also a very vibrant, active school community--the entire school meets every day for a morning assembly, something that solidifies the sense of place and belonging, something further enhanced by the house system. There’s a lot going on, and every point within the school affords a front-row seat. The ideal student is one able to thrive in a diverse, challenging, socially engaged academic atmosphere.
