From an honest former student: -Join one of the sport teams! Or else, you will more than likely end up with the wrong group of people (trash, no-lifes) -Prepare to play around in class and rarely have no class work or homework! :)) (thumbs up!.. wait! thumbs down!) -When/if you graduate, go to college(if your SAT or ACT scores are high enough) and beware of homework you've never had, then teach yourself how to study and basically learn all together. -BEWARE of the absolutely ridiculous dress code! -Watch out for the lunch food.. (enough said) -Also, it's a small town, a small school.. your business is everyone elses business.. you'll even find things out about yourself that you didnt know yet. YAY! -.- -And lastly, if you're hoping to find your soulmate at JCHS.. the chances are slim to none! But, Im sure you'll find a great pathetic loser to spend most of your time with while you're there.

This school system seems to be based on who you are in the community more than anything else, and the whole county seems to work that way also. You can get away with anything if you are the right person with the right friends.

I think that the education standards at Johnson County are under qualified there are good teacher there but the circulum is not at the Georgia education level most students are not ready for college when they graduate.

There were availability of many extracurricular activities, yet they were more like cliques than actual clubs. Overall, I would not recommend this school, unless it was the absolute last resort.

I think the lady/man that said that they showed favoratism to the people that the teachers like is wrong. Yes, they may give help to some that they like but they try to give it to others too, but you cant make someone learn something if they dont want to. I am a sophmore at JCHS and i think before you take what your child says and paste it all over the internet then you should go to the school and look at what goes on everyday. Most of the time it isnt the teachers, it is the kids.

My son is attending this school he started in the 6th grade I was very impressed in his grades and his attitude as far as going to school, he came from Adrian School Of Performing Arts, where the teachers there did not take up time with there students all they seem to do was complain about the kids behavior, I have had very few complaints about my son's behavior at JCMS and am very impressed with his progress and reports. My daughter is now attending JCMS and loves it and her teachers....no complaints!

My daughter attended this school. I found most of the teacher and the principal would push the children to the next grade or level if they liked the child. If they didn't they received no extra help what so ever. The children are not prepared for the graduation test they have to take and I was encouraged to let my child drop out.
