Judson & Brown Mission Statement
We are the professional educators of Judson & Brown Elementary School, who provide a curriculum aligned to state standards through challenging and meaningful learning opportunities to our diverse student population so that they achieve grade level academic standards and become life long learners.
Judson & Brown Elementary School, the first new school built in the city of Redlands in forty years, opened its doors to students on August 16, 2006. The school is named in honor of Redlands’ founding fathers Edward G. Judson and Frank Elwood Brown. Mr. Judson and Mr. Brown were very instrumental in developing the preliminary map of the city and starting the East Redlands Water Co., which was instrumental in bringing water to the city. An original company stock certificate, which was signed and dated on November 4, 1886 by Mr. Judson and Mr. Brown, is displayed in the school administration building.
Judson & Brown Elementary is home to two Redlands Unified School District Special Day Classes, two San Bernardino County Special Day Classes, and a Medical Therapy Unit (MTU), which provides physical and occupational therapy to special education students. The school enrollment is approximately 500 students in grades K-5. Judson & Brown, located at the corner of Judson Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, is surrounded by orange groves and has a breathtaking panoramic view of the mountain range from Cajon Pass to Crafton Hills. The mural by local artist Larry Dierdorff (above) was commissioned our inaugural year and greets our students, staff and parents each time they enter our library.
As a PeaceBuilder school, we seek to be consistent with the pledge we recite each day:
I am a peacebuilder. I pledge:
To give up put-downs,
To seek wise people,
To notice and speak up about hurts I have caused,
To right wrongs,
To help others.
I will build peace at home, at school and in my community each day.
The Jaguar Pride Song, our school anthem, sums up what we are all about:
O, we're the Jaguars, we stand proud!
We represent Judson and Brown!
We seek to learn from all we do
'Cause learning lasts your whole life through!
We stand for truth and loyalty-
You know you've got a friend in me!
Beneath the hills in orange groves
We say, "Jaguars, Go!"
Judson & Brown is proud to announce our current Academic Performance Index (API), released September 2009, of 864, making us the highest-performing Title I school in the Redlands Unified School district.
