My daughter is in her last year at Kermit. My son will enter there next year. We've had a great experience with all of the teachers. My only complaint is the distance from most homes in Pinson. It's not a convenient distance from Pinson elementary or Rudd. Because of the ages of my children they will never be at the same school until high school. With after school activities and conflicting pick up schedules, the distance from other schools has posed a problem for us. Luckily I have people who have been able to help me out. Others may not be so fortunate.

This school has many wonderful teachers who are dedicated and caring. The only problems are because of the location and number of students. The lunchroom was designed to handle 300 students and there are more than twice that many enrolled. It was built as a small community school in a rural area on narrow roads. The current amount of traffic makes it dangerous to drop off and pick up children. The remote location also hinders parent participation, after school activities and community involvement.

We are new to the area and hope this school will be good for my son. I have been reading the posts for the Pinson schools. I also have a daughter who will be in the middle school. Their education is VERY important to us. We came from the north where teachers make alot more at there job than here. To go into teaching here you must love and have the passion to teach children because it"s not for the money. I think I will form my opinions about the staff, teachers and anyone at the schools that deal with my children when they are in school. I hope it will be a good year for them.

I have one child currently enrolled at this school. I have one who has progressed beyond and two more who will attend in the near future. While not perfect, this school does have adequate technology and physical education available for the grade levels involved and, the 'Beverly Hills 90210' mentality (pervasive in many nearby school systems) is pleasantly absent from both staff and student body. Art is also addressed and perhaps extra-curricular activities, for those interested, might be the best approach for those wanting more. I humbly suggest more parental involvement for those who believe the school system is to be a state sponsored 'babysitter'; either that or, find a private school to meet your needs.

I have two children that attend this school. My son has several different obstacles that he has had to overcome. Ms. Pair a third grade teacher made a wonderful difference in my sons life. He has now made the A B honor roll twice in a row.

I am a parent of a child who completed Johnson, and one child who is still attending Johnson. My eldest had a great experience. The gifted program is incredible and her teachers inspired her to reach her potential. My second child has a learning disability, and I appreciate how much effort the faculty has given her. Not just with the mandated state programs but reaching out to her and keeping me updated with materials to help her at home. I would suggest that you as a parent get involved in your child's education. The school is most willing to have the participation.

Kermit Johnson is a great school. There are brilliant and dedicated teachers and administrators. Some of the extra curricular activities include, art club, drama club, choir, track, etc. They have new computers, a state of the art media center. It takes everyone(teachers, students, staff, and parents) to make a school great. I encourage every parent to be involved in their child's educational process.

I'm not impressed with this school. Although the teachers are great and office staff try their hardest to be welcoming, the cirriculum lacks. No art, no PE to speak of, no technology. It's hard to believe this school is here in the 21st century. Thank God for the dedicated staff. That's about all this school has going for it.

Access to the Kermit Johnson school is dangerous. Only one narrow road with no road shoulders, deep ditches, no guard rails, no red light or law enforcement officer to assist busses and parents, blind intersection with a hill in one direct and a curve in the other both within 100 yards . The School itself has good teachers and an outstanding principal.

Johnson has been great for my son. He is in the RLC program and has loved every minute of his years at Johnson. His teachers have always been great at keeping me informed of his performance and were always very encouraging. The RLC program is #1. There have been many field trips and it's pushed him to try harder in everything he does. We love Johnson!

My son loves the school and the teachers. They are very involved in the children's education. Anytime there is a problem with my son i will indeed get a call from the school or his teacher. I hate that he will have to leave one day.

Kermit Johnson is a wonderful school and has very dedicated teachers that give 100% at all times. The principal is a joy to work with and is very available to parents and students. My youngest is currently enrolled and we feel blessed to have such a terrific school to attend. I take my hats off to all the teachers especially Mrs. Wilson, she has been a part of all four of my children's education. Keep up the good work! This school is like having extended family.
