The school's math department is the worst out of the whole district. They are very unorganized and do not report grades in a timely matter. Same goes with the chemistry department. These seem to be the only areas that need tremendous improvement.

@Guy idolizing the lawman You've got it all wrong. WORST EXCUSE FOR A LEO I'VE EVER SEEN! I would never trust him with my life but sadly I can't decide for myself. All NEISD "police" are a joke. Intimidating students and lying to them about their RIGHTS.

I don't understand how some parents seem to have such a problem. None of my children had issues that went unaddressed. Morning tutoring is free at school and my children have taken advantage of it when needed in their years at JHS. Its a great school and I'm proud of my children and believe this high school has made/making them very ready for college. I checked a lot of reviews before moving to this area and I'm glad I didn't see these kind. I love my neighborhood and the schools here and feel blessed.

Principal is in way over his head. He will not deal with issues and then tries to cover up when administration gets involved. Very scary. He is more worried about being addressed as Mr. Disappointing to say the least. I would never recommend this school.

I agree with the post below about the JHS Math programs. Poor instruction in many subjects is more the norm than the exception. Almost every child I know has a tutor at least weekly at $50-$60/hr. Who can afford this? The curriculum needs to be adequately covered during class with supplemental help through before/after school tutoring (raises another issue). The Administration talks the talk but needs to walk the walk and address BAD teachers and manage their staff. They need to address the fact that many extracurricular leaders do not support their students academic endeavors. Kids are precluded from attending tutoring and reviews because they fear penalties. They are afraid to even ask to miss a practice or event. These coaches/directors say they can attend yet there are usually consequences/threats. In the kids eyes it s not even worth it. Shouldn t every staff member at JHS support the "whole child ? This unsaid policy is not fair to the children and certainly no way to positively motivate or manage. Parents are too scared to ask questions or bring up concerns for fear their children will suffer retaliation. It very dysfunctional and sad for the students.

The math department at Johnson is lacking in a HUGE way! They do not teach at all, students are not prepared for any exams. I have had to pay for a turtor for 4 years (50.00 a week) to make up for the lack of teaching and preparation for my children. Some of the teachers have a good web page and send out emails and "talk a good game" but do not deliver! Your child will NOT be prepared for SAT/ACT if you rely solely on the Math Department at Johnson High School...very disappointing for a large school with HUGE funding!!

The principal at Johnson High School is such an amazing administrator. My child has had him since 6th grade. He is always open to suggestions and feedback. If we have had an issue he has addressed it right away. He is fair, unbiased and responsive. I like the way he uses common sense and calmness. Some of the parents at this school are a little rabid. He uses a no nonsense approach that is very appreciated!

So far I'm impressed with Johnson. It has very high academic standards and a group of very committed teachers that communicate well with parents. It may not be the easiest High School, but it gives students the best opportunity to be successful for college, life and the REAL world. I would not want my child anywhere else!

This school has a problem enforcing all it's policies, it just picks the ones that are the easiest. DefiniteIy doesn't care about the dress code, but has no problem allowing a student go hungry if they're short a few cents for lunch. I don't believe the majority of faculty concerns themselves about the students as much as they should. Definitely disorganized. This school may look majestic sitting on top of a hill, but don't judge this book by it's cover because it's anything but majestic! I'd have my child go to Reagan in a heartbeat if I could.

Johnson has gone from an 9 now down to an 8 and honestly I can see why! As a junior I have seen it change for the worst. There are far too many kids, and in one of my classes I had to wait days before I had a desk! The administration is rude and seems unbothered by their students problems. Schedule changes take weeks as well as class leveling. I have been involved in several different clubs and all seem to be extremely disorganized. I have been disappointed over and over. Although I have had some amazing teacher there were ones I felt were not qualified to be teaching the course. Nice Campus, but overall it is not even worth that 8 more like a 6 to me.

I am one of three members of my family to go to Johnson High School. It has some excellent qualities, but unlike the student below, I cannot state that it is "amazing." IMO, quite frankly, in several cases, teachers and administrators promise, but don't come close to delivering (and some just don't tell the truth at all). A lot of talk, very little action. Don't even get me started on such items as the school Web site, or any communication at all. Some teachers do a fantastic job in preparing you for such things as AP exams, others are clueless. From everything I hear, the JROTC program is a mess and best avoided (some fellow students complained about everything there). The actual counselors are very competent, but weird rules. One thing is for absolute sure: most administrators or teachers never get back to you, either in a timely fashion or ever, which is a hypocritical double standard as they sure expected us to turn things in on time. And they seem to all act like they are too busy, as if no one else on the planet actually works for a living. Always excuses. Also, while I'm no expert on the English language, can someone/anyone at this school actually spell-check? - Graduate

This school has the worst leadership I have ever experienced. Their response time is horrible and the principle does a whole bunch of talking when dealing with an issue but lacks substance or solutions. Don't even get me started on the spirit clubs-- The people running these programs were either the real unpopular ladies when they were in HS trying to prove something or they are trying to relive highschool through their girls. Either way it is pathetic! How the funding is handled for the extracurricular clubs is a mystery. And what is the success criteria for the school--- how many students have graduated and got accepted to or are going to AAU schools??? I would guess few but who knows because the joke of a principle is more concerned about baseball....... Enough said!


Posted June 21, 2012

Right now i'm going to be a senior and I've been here since I was a freshman. I'm going to give you the whole truth from experience. There is one word to describe this school- AMAZING. Of couse there are little glitches, just like there are in every other school, BUT the students strive to succeed and the teachers give them tools to do so. Academicly, the school IS the best public school in San Antonio. Not only that, but the band, sport teams, dance, and rotc (and more) ARE one of the best in the state, if not, the country.

un-friendly staffs, laughable "credit recovery program", terrible Vice-principals, secretaries, teachers that seems to not give a snap about the success of their students.

With all the PhD and Master's degree in Johnson High School, the only smart person that I encountered there is the school policeman. Our children might not have a good principal, assistant principals and teachers but by God we have the best policeman in NEISD serving the school. There's no rating for the policeman I would have given him 5 stars.

The school has gone from bad to worse when the current principal assumed the position. There very few teachers who are dedicated to their calling as a teacher. I question the way the principal manage the school or there lack of. Not only the JROTC is problematic but also the Spirit/Cheerleading. This school is an accident waiting to happen.

I am a two-year attendee Senior at Johnson, and a high ranking member in the school's AJROTC. The education at this school is one of the best, but extremely competitive, to the point that students who are not the most studious or smartest in the class, get left out of a lot of opportunities that the rest receives. Also, the school is immature in its administration and has difficultly handling the problems that arise in any high school. Also, sadly the ROTC is problematic. There is a non-stop flow of gossip and un-cadet-like behavior that is a huge turn-off for anyone who accidentally gets involved.

Johnson High School has excellent academics, but has problems in certain areas. Most teachers are really, really poor in responding to emails or calls and they don't even seem to care about updating websites (has nothing to do with "hand-holding" as it does with working with parents/guardians as an education team). Therefore, it's hard to figure out what on earth is going on. Bluntly, no excuse for that. There are reported problems with the JROTC program, so this may be an area to avoid. Because the school is new, they seem to want to hang their hat on athletics to build a reputation, which is rather idiotic. They should be spending their time promoting their academics and the academic successes of their students to make sure their students go to excellent universities. Counselors seem to talk only about Texas colleges. Have/had couple children at this school, so seen it all. As another parent said, no one seems to want to rock the boat in this entire school district at all. School district administrators appear completely clueless. They spent more time getting money from homeowners than seeking cutting edge solutions to advancing education for their students.

The school is very beautiful, but it is a glaring example of the mismanagement of funds the NEISD school district receives. Sports programs are over funded while other programs do without. I have 3 kids at Johnson. They have 7 classes each. Only 7 of their teachers' web pages had updated, useful information. The school district administration & school administrators are close-minded to new ideas that are proven efficient & effective in other school systems. For example, the school's mainframe computer system runs on DOS programming. It takes 2 to 3 weeks to complete a schedule change at the beginning of the year! This school is excellent compared to other Texas schools, but that is not saying much considering the low national rankings of the Texas schools. My kids like Johnson although they are micromanaged. As a parent and former educator, I am not too impressed.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
