I think that D.S Johnson Elementary School is the best school in the whole world and that if you don't wanna learn then you don't need to be there....................................

D.S. Johnson is a school that concentrates on looking good instead of the students and the administration shows no compassion for the students. I can't understand how they (administration) can lead an elementary school without compassion and concern. I really am thinking of moving my children because of this.

Johnson Elementary school could be a very good school if the staff turn over was not so great. There seemes to be a leadership problem there as there is not much delegation of responsibilities. Teachers [s]eem to be in constant fear and discomfort about administration. There is not much extra curricular activities. Too much focus is placed on passing the grade for administration to look good.

I am not a parent, although, my experiences at D.S.J are in my memories. That school made me out to be a very smart person. I made straight A's there and now I am in advanced classes. D.S.J helps you to better your education. The teachers pay extra attention to you and help you learn and focus better. They go out of their way to teach you. I love D.S.J and always will. I am in 8th now
