10 Parent Reviews for San Joaquin Memorial High School

This is by far one of the biggest mistakes our family has ever made. This school is a hot bed for bullying. Many of the kids have horrible attitudes. It does not help that most of the administration is rude. The principal is by far one of the most pompous men that I have ever encountered. Well they say ...  Read more

SJM is well below average in a number of respects. First, teacher quality. The school has very little money to hire, train and retain quality teachers. Those who excel often leave for higher paying public school jobs. As a result expectations and policies around teaching quality are low and rarely ...  Read more

SJM provides an excellent learning environment. The teachers whom I've met are engaged and enthusiastic. The school size is particularly appealing, and the academics are rigorous. Students have ample opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities. Athletics are top notch.

I am a recent graduate from SJM and I whole-heartedly believe that the school has given me the tools to live a better life. There is room for improvement in certain academic areas of the school (particularly the mathematics and foreign language dept.), but with the resources available-- SJM provides ...  Read more

This is my 2nd year as a parent of an SJM student. The academic quality is first class as well as the sports and extracurricular activities. Facilities are worn but serviceable (please build a new GYM). All in all it beats public school by a mile and well worth the tuition! Character does count at ...  Read more

I feel this school is worth every penny. What a disappoinment to the parents of the children who did not benefit from this wonderful school. I have seen so much school spirit and the teachers and administration are top notch. I am glad my children are attending this school the public schools in this ...  Read more

Ditto to the previous parent review. If you want good character education, go to a Character Counts school like Clovis West - and for a better price (free). No concept of accountability or good stewardship apparent in administration. Lacks good example from the top. Gives Catholic schools a bad ...  Read more

The quality of this school started deteriorating when the Christian Brothers left. Before you send your child to this school, you should determine whether the marginal benefit of a Memorial education (in terms of such things as academic excellence, spiritual growth, and college placement) outweigh the ...  Read more

What has happened to SJM? The tradition is gone. The school spirit is non existant. The one and only reason that I send my child to SJM is because of likeminded parents that value what I value. I am disappointed that the only Catholic high school in the valley can't seem to get it together. I am hoping ...  Read more

I am a graduate of San Joaquin Memorial High School, class of 1992. It is the best high school for student safety, and education in Fresno County. I just wish SJM was allowed compete in the Academic Decacthalon. SJM would really clean up the public schools in the area.
