Unlike the previous poster, I've always had great response from Johansen teachers when I've emailed them -- I usually get a response within an hour and always within the same day. However, I agree that teachers should all use SchoolCenter so parents and students can easily check their grades, and unfortunately only a few teachers use it.

Johansen high school is horrible!! for the last three years I have been trying to contact teachers through their e-mails, and 'server not available' has always come up. I actually drop mail off at the school, and it takes 5 days for a teacher to get back to me!! Teenagers dom't always want to talk to their parents, so I was looking forward to The school center feature to keep me informed about assignments due. AWhat a joke!!! Not one of the teachers have entered anything in that space since october, and that was one teacher, on one day. It is ridiculos!

My daughter changed ever since she's been going to this school. Not in a good way but in a bad way. The staff there have no clue whatsoever on what is going on between students and their peers. This automatically shows how irresponsible it is. I certaintly do not recommend anyone to this school.

My daughter is a Sophomore this school year (06-07). I would have to say that she has shown tremendous growth since her Freshman year. The staff has contributed to her success in many ways. They have dedicated after school hours, one-on-one tutoring, participated in parent conferences, and are constantly encouraging success in her education. The academic programs are great and there are many extracurricular activities for student involvement. When parents become involved, the school becomes a better place as I have experienced at JHS. Go Vikings!

This was a great school- great music program, many sports (olympic size pool), and wonderful teachers. A GATE program for advanced students as well as special ed program.

My son has been there for 2 years now and his grades are impressive compared to middle school. I do feel however that the sports coaches are a little on the discriminative side. They just need to give all of the team a chance, since that is what it is a team!

Even Though Johansen is in a very good location in Modesto, I think that it has one of the worst gang problems in Modesto. There are so many diffrent gangs trying to claim Johansen and so many diffrent types of people who go there that they fight each other all of the time. But besides that the teachers are good. Most of them are really to the students. They will tell you how it is. Johansen has a lot of good opt. for the students. Many diffrent programs to choose from. You can go far from a school like this one if you don't get cought up in all of the stupid gang mess.

Johansen school has been a great experience. The school appreciates parent involvement. They take very seriously the safety and comfort of my son. They are very helpful and understanding of any problems, going out of their way to be there with help and suggestions. They focus on positive encouragement rather than negative threats, thereby setting kids up for success rather than failure. The teachers are all high quality and the administration is top notch. I couldn't ask for more. Thank you Johansen. SG

I'm a Senior at Johansen High School and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. The AP classes and teachers really get involved and have a real connection with the students. I love my school!

I have 3 children that have attended JHS. All three different and unique. #1 male child, great attitude, did the work and achieved his goals. #2 male child, poor attitude, seems to care less about his future, makes little or no effort. #3 female child, good attitude, honest effort, struggles with her 'friends' peer pressure. I have contact and involvement with each of their teacher's. All but one teacher have been a sourse of encouragement and help. On any level of help or encouragement, the teachers are available. I have utilized the e-mail directory for each, and all have responed within 6 hours. I'm impressed. My only big concern is the dress standard for girls that is allowed. Many of these girls are wearing as little as possible. my #2 child states that it is better than looking at a Victoria Secrets catalog. Good luck to the rest of you. I believe that our children ultimately own their failures and their accomplishments.

I am a 2003 graduate of JHS. My experience was excellent. I feel that I was given an above-average education at Johansen. I always felt safe and cared about. These parents who complain probably have students who simply didn't take advantage of the resources available. My experience with counselors was very good...they were always accomodating to me and my needs.


Posted September 6, 2003

My child has had a nightmare of a time during the 3+ years he's attended. His counselor took a dislike to him and was completely unprofessional in her regulation of his school career. After over a year of wrangling I finally found someone who cares but it's too late and my child is paying for this schools lack of quality professionals. If you have an athlete or genius they will love you. Average students beware!

This school has little regard for the student other than as a tool for state funding. If you have a child in athletics, they love them. If you have a genius they coddle them. Average children stand no chance at success here.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
