I am also very impressed with this school. My son has been going to James Johnson school since Kindergarten. He is now a third grader and we have had nothing but good experiences. The teacher have been down to earth and very helpful with my son's development.

It makes me sad to leave this review. I think there are a great group of parents and teachers... and staff. But there are some teachers who are just going thru the motions. I think it mainly comes down to the principal. There is a huge disconnect between the teachers and principal, and its very clear the teachers are not happy with the way the school is being ran. And I think a lot of parents would agree. the pincipal isn't friendly to the children, they barely know her. She loves stuffing issues under the rug or passing the blame. Ive seen 2 people fired over her mistakes, or an issue she should've dealt with and blew it off. And yes these are issues that effect the children. I think this school could be an awesome school... but I am so happy to not send my kids there anymore.

Johnson Elementary School has such a dedicated staff. All of my daughter's teachers went above and beyond to provide her with the best education. As a educator myself, I recognize the implementation of 'Best Practice' in the careful planning, scaffolding, and clear expectations provided. Thank you to all of the incredible teachers in Johnson School!

There appears to be less rigor in the curriculum/programming/processing of it. A all ir not some 4th grade chorus was eliminated this year--with no announcement, no written notice. Parents no longer feel welcome at our school so there has been a strong reduction in parents volunteer because of this.

I am impressed with this school. My son has been going to James Johnson school since Kindergarten. He is now a fifth grader and we have had nothing but good experiences with this school. Each teacher he has had has been very helpful, caring and involved in his educational development. The school has a well rounded curriculum in addition to music and many after school programs.
