Again, some teachers are highly effective, while others should search for another career. We have a handful of teachers assigned to this campus who hurt students mentally and academically. Teachers should not scream at students. The Principal is oblivious to this notion.
Overall, this school comprises highly qualified teachers, but there are a few who should find another profession as they hurt the academic progress of students.
A few teachers employed at this school are sarcastic, scream at students often, and put students down.
Administrators do not have a clue what REALLY goes on in the classrooms. Once the teachers close the classroom doors it's their words against the students. Teachers say and do whatever they please, and when reported by parents, this Principal has a monotonous script ready - He says, "I am shocked to hear this. You are the first parent who has ever said this. I often talk to the students around the school, and they love this teacher."
I hope the new Superintendent of Schools will "weed-out" ineffective teachers and administrators who hurt our students.
Amazing school. Our son chose Johnston as a magnet in choir and orchestra. The teachers are very good and the GT class work is rigorous. As for the magnet classes they are even more rigorous and students who fail to comply with the high standards lose their eligibility. I know many parents are concerned about sending their child to a Title 1 school but they really miss out when they write Johnston off.
