    Health & Safety: Personally, I myself have never once been to the nurse, but my friends have told me even for the smallest things like a headache the nurses will take care of you. The school is relatively safe with the school police constantly roaming the halls and doing sweeps every once and awhile. Not to many fights break out, and when they do its usually before a long break when people begin to get a little to excited.

    Extracurriculars: Some of the most known Extracurricular activities at are Band, Choir, Football, Track, Tennis, and our Digital media crew which produces our "Rocket TV". These specific orginazations put in a lot of work to be very successful and widely know not only throughout the school, but around our city even. Things like after school practices can be intense and sometimes rough, but after putting in all the work the final product of each organization is almost flawless

    Overall Experience: From my experience from a student in band, the school is great and really supportive of the other extracurricular events. The best example of this is during football season and when the band has competitions. When you walk down the halls you'll see numerous amounts of hand made poster encouraging the football team to win or the band to take 1st place.

    Teachers: The Teachers at Judson high school are very good at what they do. Most teachers are very helpful to their students when they need things such as tutoring. The counselors at our school really help out each individual student with their career choices or life choices in general.

    Extracurriculars: There are a lot of great clubs offered and sometimes even started by the students. However participation from a lot of students to different clubs (opposed to just sports clubs) are hard to maintain.
