I attennded my 7th grade year to this school, and let me say if i had a chance to go back in time id NEVER go there again ! The students there are very racist, and love to have drama with other students. I experienced lots of problems when attending there because of my race and id never reccomend to take yhur kids here unless yhu want them bullied or mistreated by the other students. They have really nice staff, but like one of the other reviews said, it takes toooo long to get in contact with them and they are too strict on the dress code i know yhur not supposed to wear inappropriate clothes but c'mon really?? its not to exaggerate that much as they do there...
My child has attended this school for three years, the last two have been an absolute nightmare! The counslers don't return phone calls, so you can make a appointment with them. If you drop in they are not there, you can leave them notes and they never respond. I have been trying to speak to my child's counsler since the beginning of the school year. The one person I finally got in touch who was trying with was transfered. My child was passed when I asked them to hold him back last year. He has been told all he has to do is pass the CRT's test to pass. As long as your child is not a disipline problem and simply has trouble learning, they will never get attention from the administration. Even if you sit on their doorsteps!
My son loves coming to this school. The principal has great handle on things. I like the no nonsense approach. I think parents should know about the shenanigans that their kids try. These are excellent teachers. The parents need to keep their kids in better check. They don't realize how lucky they have it at this school. My son came from a horrible school. This school is like a dream compared to a lot of schools in Clark County. Thank you all at Johnson.
My daughter enjoyed her 1st year @ JJHS. Made NJHS (National Junior Honor Society) The staff is fantastic.
i have had nothing but bad experiences with this school. they seem to lack focus on what is important and zoom in on things like my son not wearing the proper coler polo shirt...it was orange instead of blue or white..and of course orange would be o.k. if it were friday and i paid a dollar. this makes no sense to me and i can't understand how people don't recognize the infringement of civil liberties and constitutional rights. this school gets a zero from me and i am embarrassed that my children have to attend it.
This is a great school. It has a very nice, clean environment and the teachers do their jobs exceptionally well. Only problem I actually had there was the deans singling out students during lunch. Their musical groups are excellent (I was in orchestra way back when) and I can say I'd like to do Middle School all over again just because of it. Great school.
Great School! Lots of extracurricular! Great teachers, principal and vice principal!
johnson is the best school ever! plus the boys basketball team were the city champions in 2003-2004 it is the best school ever!
Johnson Jr. high is the best school ever. There are excellent extracurricular activities and a variety of electives.
