Great school, love that my kids went there. They are very involved in the activities and school spirit. In reading some of these reviews that are poor for the school, it seems that they accused the school of letting them 'fall through the cracks', it's your fault not theirs. There are activities for all, find something you like and do it. If they don't have it, start it.
My daughter did very well at CTJHS and was happy while there. Yes, her math scores were not as high as we would have liked, but that is largely due to less effort towards math homework on her part. She was an active, key member of the band program and found all of her support and camaraderie through that department. Jarrett Lipman and Alan Sharps, band directors, did phenomenal jobs at keeping her competitive band life as balanced as it could reasonably during competition season with her regular school life. She made wonderful friends, traveled extensively with the band, took part in other extracurricular activities, and had four really good years. My son starts as a freshman at CTJHS this fall and we look forward to more school success. GO JAGS!
Everyone goes above and beyond their job. Mrs. Shore always has a smile. And has a way of making your worst day into an awesome day. She is the best. If I knew all their names I would make an entire list of everyone because they all are truly amazing.
We recently arrived in the Johnson High School District, and we absolutely love this high school. As we prepared to move, my wife flew to San Antonio to find a house and research the schools. She called Johnson and was met by a member of the administration who gave her a full tour of the campus and an orientation of the academic and extracurricular activities. It was above and beyond. As we arrived in town, I took my son to the high school to join the summer conditioning program, and the head f-ball coach and athletic director spent a full 30 minutes with us. The majority of that time, he talked to my son about academics and character...with a sprinkling of football and wrestling information. They have their priorities right. We love this school, teachers, and administration.
I was a student at Johnson in the 2012-2013 school year, and from my time spent there I loved the school. I was a freshman and I can honestly can say I'm really happy Johnson is where I spent my first year of high school. It was a very bright, open environment. The architecture of the school was great, it had a very open feel. I took Pre-AP classes and I loved all of my teachers. If I needed assistance they were there to help. Contrary to other schools I'd attended, I didn't experience any racial problems. I made very good friends that I still communicate with although I live in a different city. I now attend an online school as a Junior, but if I had the choice to attend any high school, I would pick Johnson. Go Jags!
My oldest daughter was a freshman at JHS last year. She did struggle with the transition from middle to high school. I called the counseling office within the first 2 weeks of school, as we saw she was struggling. The counselors set her up to meet with 2 upper class man girls to sort of guide her, it helped a lot. She then joined Art club, and is in advanced Theater Production classes. My middle daughter will be a incoming freshman this year, and is very excited to be a Jaguar. I can speak to the admin, to the counseling staff, who called me at 9 pm, on a Tuesday evening, well after school hours so we could switch my daughters schedule around, to better accommodate her interests. I also had her bumped from English to AP English, with no time elapsed, so it was an instant next day change at the beginning of school. Overall, we've been very impressed with all the assistance we've received from the principal, to the admin, to the teachers and Theater Staff. We moved to SA, from Ca about 5 years ago, and JHS was a wonderful choice for my daughters high school education.
I don't know how this can be considered a high school. I only went here for a couple months and then decided to leave. The office staff is absolutely horrible. The dress code is not enforced what so ever so I saw girls walking around with shorts up their butts. Some teachers are better than others but for the most part mine were not that good. I would have loved to have gone to a school that actually focused on the academics and not the latest gossip, what people are wearing, and whoi has the most money. Often times I felt like I was being made fun of because I wasn't wearing all the same designer brands everyone else was wearing. If you actually want a good learning environment for your child do not send them here.
Johnson is a great school if you have a great student. However, there are few things available to those who aren't competitive in a specific area; if you're not a great athlete or musician, and you don't want to do JROTC, you have a good chance of falling through the cracks at this school. And there's too much money and temptations at this school to fall through the cracks without getting into a mess. They need more good programs and better teachers, especially in the technology area.
We just moved to Texas a few months ago. We found a beautiful house in the Johnson High school district. After reading all the negative reviews about the teachers and the staff I was nervous about sending my child to Johnson High. Coming in the middle of the year was a difficult adjustment for my child. My child was struggling in math and I contacted the math teacher Ms. Perez and she worked with my child after school and my child has completely caught up. So I am not sure why there are so many negative comments about the teachers. I have found the majority of the teachers to be wonderful. The office staff is a different story, they are rude and seemed bothered by having to do any type of work. This school has so much potential, I hope the parents become more involved.
