Friendly staff, decent food, and amazingly diverse electives help contribute to this great school! The only teacher that I've experienced who wasn't great is Mr. Bese who hardly challenges his students and plays his phone during class. However, the rest of the teachers are pretty much phenomenal, and the schools testing scores are extremely high! Its an overall outstanding school that I highly recommend going to!

This school is horrible! The teachers are all racist I suggest anyone with colored skin should not go here

Judson students are great and the staff works very hard at providing the best educational opportunities possible!

My son has done very well at Judson and seems to enjoy it as well. As much as any 13 year old boy can enjoy school anyway. ;) With very few exceptions, we have been happy with the staff. Mr. Perez, a counselor, particularly impressed us when he went above and beyond to help our son when he broke his leg at the start of 6th grade. Our son was beside himself worrying about getting around his 'new school' on crutches. Mr. P came up with solutions to all of the obstacles worrying my son and made a terribly difficult situation so much easier. Also, the selection of electives offered here are numerous and diverse and our son has discovered new talents thanks to them. The one negative has been the attendance office and their unwillingness to be at all flexible in excusing unavoidable tardies.

this school is amazing! i love it! our coirs are unbelievable they do so well at their concerts. our band and orchestra do very well too. oh and i almost forgot to mention the drama classes. i was part of the backstage crew for the drama production'the dance' we all worked very hard to get where we ened up with it selling out twice. our classes are actually sometimes pretty fun, my personal favorite though is pe i love this class the most. we also have a catering class that bsells baked goods to the students and staff after school about every 2 weeks or so. if you have the chance have your kids go here it is an amazing school. Go Judson!

I have had a wonderful time at this school. We recently moved into the Crossler Middle School and I was heart broken I didn't want to leave! Concert Choir just won 4th at Best in the Northwest Choir Festival today! This school is amazing!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oregon used the Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (OAKS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math; in grade 11 in writing; and in grades 5, 8 and 11 in science. The OAKS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Oregon. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
