    Living in Richmond City where schools does not offer Pre-K my daughter was behind. In Henrico school system especially Johnson Elementary continuing growth and learning development my daughter is up to par. We still need to focus on some areas but the teaching there is well structured. I love this school very good to go I feel like my daughter is on a first grade level and she reading doing fractions coins and words. Writing sentence reading comprehension.

    I think this is a great school! This is my daughter's first year here and I'm very impressed in the staff and how involved they are in their students education. It is a very diverse school and they seem to embrace it by having lots of different functions outside of the school.
