Saint Jude School Case Study
St Jude has a wide-ranging and international program that focuses on high expectations, critical thinking, effort, and 21st-century skills. Students build their attributes from a global perspective through their international programs.
The landscape of education is continuously evolving and educators are always searching for innovative solutions that can empower their students. Box of Books (BoB) is proud to partner with St Jude, providing their secondary school community of 230 students with digital IB resources.
Gilberto Paniagua Abarca, Deputy Director and IB Coordinator at St Jude School embarked on a quest to provide students with the tools they needed to transition from physical to digital textbooks.
Before he discovered Box of Books, they encountered a significant challenge. Gilberto acknowledged that in a world where digital formats were becoming the norm, “our students needed a solution to seamlessly transition from traditional hardcover books to digital resources that aligned with our IB curriculum”. What caught Gilberto’s attention was BoB’s holistic approach to digital learning.

St Jude teaching staff have enthusiastically embraced BoB. “They appreciate the excellent 24/7 In-App support, which swiftly addresses any issues, relieving IT-related concerns for both staff and students.” Gilberto commended the remarkable rich notes feature which allows teachers to add notes and upload their teaching materials. This not only facilitates collaboration but also enhances the student experience with additional resources and support.
Gilberto praised Box of Books for becoming an indispensable tool for their school. It provides a user-friendly portal that offers digital resource accessibility for both teachers and students, offering a vast collection of International Baccalaureate titles tailored to various levels and needs.
Having a portal that has great accessibility for both teachers and students, clusters all books for different levels and needs.
In today's digital age, it is crucial to cater to the needs of the new generation. Gilberto acknowledged “Box of Books offered the perfect solution for our students via digital devices all on one platform. It also seamlessly integrates with the student's Microsoft 365 single sign-on. This allows studying to become a flexible and convenient experience. Students can access their materials anytime and anywhere, aligning perfectly with the demands of the 21st century.”
If you are seeking an educational tool that aligns with the demands of modern education, Gilberto stated that he would “wholeheartedly recommend Box of Books - it's an amazing tool for modern education”. With unparalleled convenience, an extensive digital catalogue, and unwavering support, Box of Books has become an indispensable partner.
St Jude School’s experience with Box of Books has been transformative, and we are confident it can bring the same positive change to other international schools looking to provide an exceptional education.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Box of Books to other International Schools - it's an amazing tool for modern education.
