This school excels in pride and respect and academic expectations! They've made my child more self-confident.

This school is indeed THE BEST SCHOOL in the state of Kentucky, and one of the best in the United States; it was even listed in the news paper that Johnson Central was one of the countries best schools. With a great sports program and also great academics. We have had four consecutive football seasons averaging ten or more wins per season, and score as one of top scores in the state on our end of the year tests every year. This is indeed the best school in the state of Kentucky without any doubt what so ever.

I am currently a student of Johnson Central High School and I personally would never even consider changing high schools for anything. This school has a great atmosphere for students to learn in and wonderful teachers that help you every step of the way. Johnson Central is progressing wonderfully in everything that we do. We have been close to the top 10 schools on the end of the year testing and we have exceeded the state average on all areas of the test. There is so much greatness that I could comment about this high school that this review would exceed 2 pages easily. I believe that in a few years we could very possibly be one of the best schools in the state of Kentucky if not THE best school in the state of Kentucky.

I am a former JCHS student, the school always said it was the 'Best School in the State of Kentucky' and it is! There is a saying, and still is, that any JCHS student *And JCMS student at that* will be able to remember 40 years from now, 'Pride and Respect' Have Pride in your school and respect for your teachers and fellow peers. It didn't mean as much to me then as it does now, I really would not want to be comming from any other school. The Academic's there are phenominal, as the Academic team *which I was not on, but dated someone who was on it throughout school* and so I went to the academic meets for years, and I don't remember once when we didn't get first in regionals, and many many times we made it to state and nationals.
