My mother who is 81 years old, my aunt and 3 uncles, 16 first cousins, 4 siblings, my spouse and I are all San Joaquin Memorial High school graduates and LOVE the place! We cannot say enough good things about this amazing college-preparatory school and we all continue to actively support it as alumni. Our eldest son is now a sophomore at the University of California at Berkeley and he loved SJM as well and had an excellent experience there. He is getting A's and B's at CAL and has said SJMHS prepared him well. Our youngest son is currently a sophomore at SJM.

As an alum and a former SJM parent, I can truly say it is a wonderful, family-like atmosphere. It is not only a challenging college prep school, but is small with all of the athletics, clubs and activities of larger, public schools without all the drama. It is an incredibly safe campus and offers a Christian atmosphere while welcoming students of all different faiths. I highly recommend SJM!
I've attended San Joaquin Memorial for all my four years of high school and I can say it's been one great experience. The teachers are top notch and are very cooperative with students and parents. Classes aren't as impacted like other local high schools in the Central Valley, class sizes are very small ranging from 12 students to 25! That's a deal right, and since the classes are so small it makes life real easy for one on one talks with teachers. The schools iPad program is great and makes using the iPad a real helpful tool for school work. All in all going to SJM has really satisfied my high school needs.
