I have had three children attend this school. It is excellent. It is why we chose to cram into a small base house instead of buying out in town. My son is on the autism spectrum and is enrolled for the second year in the pre-K program. This school cares, the parents are involved, the teachers and admin are superb. They offer very good care to special needs students and they will the the standard by which I measure all other schools.

This school is AMAZING! The atmosphere is warm and safe. The kids are challenged to do their best. My child started kindergarten with an IEP, and now doesn't need it thanks to JPS. Parents are welcome to participate. The principal is warm and freindly to both students and parents. Teachers are responsive and really know and love each of their students. The military child has to deal with so much, but at JPS, they are aware of this and are such a support to each child. They have a club for kids whose parents are currently deployed to help them. Each quarter there is an amazing cirriculum night that I swear half the school shows up for it's so awesome. They have a freedom walk to honor 9/11, a fun carnival each fall, and celebrate the military child each spring. My only negative thing to say is that the preschool, though amazing is not very long. (2.5 hrs) I know there are talks of cutting finding to DODEA schools, which would be a crying shame, as this school is what every parent wants for their kid.

The teachers at JPS are spectacular - you will absolutely not find better teachers anywhere! The PTA is a joke!! I love that, as a parent, I am welcome to pop in at anytime and help out in the classroom. It's a shame more parents aren't more involved, or able to be. Once I witnessed a special needs child in a fit of some sort being escorted down the hall. He was really fighting the teachers, but they were handling him with such care you would have thought it was their own child. In the end, my kids LOVE their teachers and feel safe and loved here! The kids have tailored goals to meet their needs and are lovingly pushed daily to be the best they can be.

My daughter was at johnson for Kindergarden 2009-2010 and I loved her teacher, Ms Bonner, she is retired though and I know she is missed!! Yet I also liked the way the school was ran, my only issues were that they combind age groups...ie they have k&1st grade in the same classroom with the same teacher, i requested my child to only be in a kindergarden class yet I am not sure about 1st grade. Also they have all the events during the day, so people work... we live on a base.... and the pta is active with the same 7 people and no parents jump in when they do they are so overwelmed they never come back!!!!! yet I am not sure if it was her teacher that made the school so amazing or what I will let you know this year!!!!

Last year, we loved JPS and thought it was the absolute best school our children could attend. This year, 2010-2011, our views have drastically changed. The administration is a mess due to faculty changes and other personal issues amongst the administration. The assistant principal does not support the students or parents. The gifted program has changed as well as the requirements for the program. The PTA is not spectacular. In fact, they are so bad that long time supporters quit early in the school year, not to mention that 3 newly appointed members have quit. Teachers are not an issue and in fact are fabulous. Too bad they are not supported by the administration either. I sincerely hope that JPS revamps its PTA and administration before next school year. If not, choose a private school or move out in town.

Johnson Primary is what every parent in America wishes that every primary school in America really was like. The teachers are highly prepared professionals with the full support of the administration and parents. Children feel valued and are allowed to progress through the primary years of learning to read, write and do math at their own pace. Classes are well organized and disciplined in a kind manner. Parents are welcome in the class at any time and can quickly be put to work helping out. Multi-grade education is working to perfection, allowing fluidity in a child's individual learning pace...and each child is on a tailored program. It is a large school that feels intimate because the classes are broken into teams that function almost as smaller schools within a school. No matter what time of day I step into the school Every seems to be on

I have two children on the Toucan Team. My daughter is in her third year with Mrs Moore. My son is in Kindergarten with Ms Erny. Being somewhat of a traditionalist, I was unsure how I felt initially about the mulit-age set-up, but I had always heard great things about the Toucan team from other parents. It has been great! I have seen my daughter go from pre-reading to loving to read. She loves going to school. In areas where she struggles (writing), she is given constant encouragement, and since there is a blend of levels of performance (not just grade or age specific), I have seen kids with greater proficiency helping their school mates who need it. The kids who might need extra help aren't left feeling they are behind their peers, because in this classroom setting, there are varying levels of ability and proficiency among the kids. I believe all students benefit from the multi-age class - younger kids learn from the older ones, and older kids have the abilily to share what they've learned, thus reinforcing their new skills with enthusiasm. My kindergartner loves loves loves Ms Erny's class! He comes home excited to do his homework (most days!), and eager to share some new fact he learned that day. It is clear to me that Mrs Moore and Ms Erny really know their students, beyond just their individual educational strengths and weaknesses. It is also obvious that they love their jobs!
