    This is school is awful. I went in to get my little brother his class schedule and was met with the most rude and unpleasant woman I have ever met. Ms.Moody the register secretary didn't even glance up when I walked to the desk and asked if I could get my brothers schedule. She very rudly snapped at me mid sentence "We're closed." I then asked if they would be open on Monday so we could get it. She had the nerve to ask me "Why hasn't he gotten it?" I sharply said "That's why we're here." She then asked very condescendingly "Well did you move?" I said "That's really none of your business." She said "Because they were mailed to you. Are you his parent?" I said no. She then happily said "We'll I can't give you any information" She then childishly said to my 12 year old brother ill give you the information. The whole thing got very out of hand and I can't believe they would have someone so rude working with cherry. She clearly has no respect of any kind for anyone and I will be speaking to the principal about her. The whole thing could have easily been avoided if she had not come off so unpleasant and condescending. I'm very disappointed in this school.

    I went here for 2 years. It was dreadful! The kids are so rude and snobby. The teachers would get mad at the littlest thing and give you detention. The school is very "dramatic" it seems like the kids are more into drama than learning. I had no friends because all the kids thought I was too feminine (I am a guy). I transferred to Brinley Middle School for 8th grade and it had much nicer kids! It was fairly clean and the teachers were determined to help us learn which the teachers at Johnson didn't. But hey this is my opinion feel free to disagree.

    I went here for 3 years and overall I'd say it's a pretty good school. It's clean and everyone does their job. I liked it. Although some of the kids can be rude but I say ignore it. The staff is pretty good and the principle is nice. Things like electives are really fun too. I'd say it's a good school.

    This school is horrible! I attended my seventh grade year and it was absolutely dreadful. The kids were so rude racist and so ignorant. There's so much drama and bullying there and the teachers do nothing about it! My counselor did nothing to help me and the teachers were bad! They would get side tracked so easily and talk about mostly their life we learned nothing! NJHS was horrible they seemed to give membership to ANYONE.

    I attennded my 7th grade year to this school and let me say if i had a chance to go back in time id NEVER go there again ! The students there are very racist and love to have drama with other students. I experienced lots of problems when attending there because of my race and id never reccomend to take yhur kids here unless yhu want them bullied or mistreated by the other students. They have really nice staff but like one of the other reviews said it takes toooo long to get in contact with them and they are too strict on the dress code i know yhur not supposed to wear inappropriate clothes but c'mon really?? its not to exaggerate that much as they do there...

    My child has attended this school for three years the last two have been an absolute nightmare! The counslers don't return phone calls so you can make a appointment with them. If you drop in they are not there you can leave them notes and they never respond. I have been trying to speak to my child's counsler since the beginning of the school year. The one person I finally got in touch who was trying with was transfered. My child was passed when I asked them to hold him back last year. He has been told all he has to do is pass the CRT's test to pass. As long as your child is not a disipline problem and simply has trouble learning they will never get attention from the administration. Even if you sit on their doorsteps!

    My son loves coming to this school. The principal has great handle on things. I like the no nonsense approach. I think parents should know about the shenanigans that their kids try. These are excellent teachers. The parents need to keep their kids in better check. They don't realize how lucky they have it at this school. My son came from a horrible school. This school is like a dream compared to a lot of schools in Clark County. Thank you all at Johnson.

    i have had nothing but bad experiences with this school. they seem to lack focus on what is important and zoom in on things like my son not wearing the proper coler polo was orange instead of blue or white..and of course orange would be o.k. if it were friday and i paid a dollar. this makes no sense to me and i can't understand how people don't recognize the infringement of civil liberties and constitutional rights. this school gets a zero from me and i am embarrassed that my children have to attend it.

    This is a great school. It has a very nice clean environment and the teachers do their jobs exceptionally well. Only problem I actually had there was the deans singling out students during lunch. Their musical groups are excellent (I was in orchestra way back when) and I can say I'd like to do Middle School all over again just because of it. Great school.
