As Judge administration put it to us, "Judge is a product." Our 2.5 year experience there got increasingly worse. While some teachers were excellent others refused to engage us as parents, brought obvious personal problems to the classroom, and had policies that are not consistent with preparing students for college. There is no effort what so ever to mentor and discipline unprofessional teachers and lazy guidance counselors who refuse to be part of a solution. There's a focus on petty rules and a substance abuse testing program that is not random or transparent. In many cases it is used to by administration to instill fear and bully students into providing information about their peers' off campus activities. We are alarmed at the dropout rate and number of dissatisfied parents and graduates we encounter. I could never recommend this school after a positive K-8 private school experience.

Supports LD students: Strongly disagree

Consistent with other feedback, our experience was one of total rigidity and no intent to adjust the "product" for the benefit of the student.


Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree

There appears to be no mentoring or discipline for ineffective teachers at this school. Regular instances of humiliating students in the classroom, inappropriate sexual relations, and personal problems made obvious to students were not dealt with.

The teachers and education you receive at this school are exceptionally great, especially when compared to other public schools in Utah. Their mission is to help you succeed. Teachers at this school cannot abuse the tenure system, which is often heavily abused by teachers in Salt Lake's public schools. This means teachers must be good to students, unlike public school teachers that just want to get their tenure to have a stable job but be as bad as they want to students without consequence. However, there are some areas that I felt unpleased about at this school. One thing is that I feel like this school asks you to spend too much money in areas that have alternatives. Also, they selfishly force parents to devote time from work to volunteer for the school or "donate" $150. This especially can be a problem when you have a single parent who literally has to work 24/7 to support the family.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
This school gives a reasonable amount of homework that will help kids understand the topic.

We could not be happier with the education at Judge Memorial High School. Great school. Wonderful teachers!

The school, staff and mission makes this one of the best schools in the nation. Quality over quantity along with a strong sense of community makes Judge superb!

After having our oldest son graduate from Juan Diego, the other Catholic school in Salt Lake City, we transferred our second son (now a jr) and daughter (freshman) to Judge. We have been thrilled with Judge and can't believe the difference. We thought our son at JD was getting a fantastic education at JD until his senior year when his test scores had all dropped significantly despite having an overall GPA of over 3.5. Our middle son is struggling to catch up with his peers at Judge after his first 2 years at JD. We also feel the spiritual aspect of Judge is superior to JD. We can't believe what a difference there is between the schools and would wholeheartedly recommend Judge to any parent or student. Our kids love Judge and the education is amazing. Community is also fantastic. Can't say enough about the school

By Far the Best High School in the Western States. They know their job is educating and preparing Kids for college and that's what they do. Class of 2010 was 184 Students, every single one graduated and at least 180 of them went to college, the class received in excess of 14million dollars in College Scholarships, sent multiple kids to multiple Ivy league colleges, as well as Annapolis, West Point and the Air Force academy. No other school in the inter-mountain are can say that! And they are prepared and succeed. Worth every penny of the tuition I've paid, because now I'm not paying one penny for college. I'm pretty sure that no School District can make those claims, let a lone a single High School...

It is not a college prep school per se yet almost 95% go to college. The alumnae are close and everyone knows who attended even though the graduation dates are years apart. The school ranks as one of the highest in the area even compared to private schools who test for admission. It is very hard not to succeed if you attended Judge Memorial.
