Johnson is a fantastic school. The principal, Ms. Urso, (new to Johnson in 2012) is by far the BEST administrator we have encountered in Livonia schools. She is passionate about the kids getting a great education in a safe, caring environment and holds her teachers to a high standard. The teachers that our son has had are all great, including the 'specials' teachers for art, music, and PE. This school should be the benchmark for all schools in Livonia!

This School is very different (in a good way). They teach the kids not only math or solcial studies but a life lesson. The teacher my daughter appreciated the most was Mr. Mack. He has touched her heart and taught her not only school knowledge but general knowledge. I would recommend Mr. Mack for any child. My daughter loves the principles there,Mr. Steele and Mrs.Mintermen. Mr. Steele has been my daughters principle for 6 out of 8 years in school (counting Pre-School). In my daughter's lanuage 'Mr. Steele is the Bomb'. Mrs. Minstermen has been her Principle for 2 out of 8 years in school (counting Pre-Scool). My daughter has told me that Mrs. Minstermen has made the biggest changes in her life.

I have been a Johnson parent since 1994. All three of our children were students at Johson. It is a wonderful school and community. The area has grown tremendously. I have so much respect for the teachers and stafff that have helped to 'mold' our children these past twelve years. They truly care for the kids. I am proud to have volunteered at Johnson and be an active participant of our children's experiences. I can't believe our baby is graduating from the 6th grade class this June! Johnson will always hold a special place in all of our hearts!

As an African American Parent I would NOT recommend this school to African Americans. You feel the racism when you enter the building. My child told me that his teacher only called on certain students and I also observed that with my own eyes. I had heard such great things about this school and it's unfortunate that my child had to experience this at a young age, but it's a great life lesson for him. Teaching children should not be about color in the 21st century. I also found the curriculum not rigorous enough for my child.

I am very disappointed that there is no foreign language program. I also am advocating for a 'diversity competence' training program for all staff, given the multi-ethnic student population of the school.
