Sandra Day O'Connor, James Madison, Douglas MacArthur, Judson, Earl Warren, William H. Taft, and John Paul Stevens are all very strong programs.
I would say that outside of the NEISD schools, Earl Warren and Judson are the top bands in San Antonio.

Stefen, your school will make quite a splash this year.

Brandeis is making the necessary changes to their program to jump up a level or two. The director is hungry and extremely motivated. While it is unlikely to happen overnight, the school is setting itself up to be a player at some time in the near future.

That’s from this past season, and anyone out of the top five can switch around imo

That's odd rankings then considering that Reagan beat Johnson at BOA and Brandeis beat Warren, Oconnor, Judson and ranked the closest San Antonio school in Area H to the Austin schools.

There is a bit of personal preference in that as well, and warren placed well at boa San Antonio, two spots below madison. I haven’t seen much of the other shows but I know Brandeis is on the rise and O’Connor has a history of not only making area finals but also advancing to state. Regardless of the change in directors, given the culture surrounding that program I expect them to continue their success. Judson’s ranking is based on how closely they compete with Madison at local competitions generally.

that was last year - in the past 5 years CTJ has more BOA championships than any other program in the state - let alone in San Antonio

I respect your preference Madison Band Man1 but, it is uneducated. The reason why Brandeis did worse at BOA is because our show was made for UIL. It worked we got 6th in the hardest area of Texas. If we would of had a BOA type show we would have done worse at UIL.

I understand that your show was for uil, and I respect your opinion, but I am not just taking boa into account, and I am sorry if I offended you. Like I said, there was also personal preference involved. Once again, I am sorry for offending you.

Why bother asking if you don't like other people's opinions? I don't think there is a correct one myself.
