My twin daughters attended Johnston Elementary and had a wonderful experience. The faculty was excellent and truly provided educational preparation for middle school. I am disappointed for those who had a negative experience at this school, but it is not a "terrible" school. It is considered one of the best schools in Abilene. In fact I have custody of my grandson and deliberately moved to be in this school's district so that he would attend. He is now in the second grade and I am completely satisfied with his progress.
My name is Adam Hardy and i attended this school as a child and I have to agree that this school is terrible I was bullied and my teachers just stood there and watched it happen. When I told my teachers what happened they punished me for what they called "tattling". The fact that this school is even listed on a site is a joke.
Three my children have gone to Johnston since they were 5 years old, two being twins and still at Johnston . Our school is where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled as the smart or dumb kids. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. Not only does the principal know each child by name but also his entire staff... HE is a great example of a leader. Thank you Johnston for bringing out the best in my children and giving them the encouragement and confidence they need to go out into the world.
I think this school is a great school. Every one works together all the time. Every one who works at Johnston do their very best to make the kids come first. My little girl got hurt last year and every one made sure we got the help she need fast and and it did not stop there. I thank god for having a good school as my girls have. And my last baby will be starting this year. And I can rest that he will be taking care. Thank you for your time.
