    Agree...typical Rockford school! So frustrated with the whole Rockford school district! They don't know how to teach these children or even know how to interact with them. My child was left alone and had no clue where he was going till a parent walking in found him crying alone!!!

    I currently have a 1st grader at Johnson. I have already been impressed at the organization and leadership of the school. The principle is excellent! She runs a 'tight ship' and keeps parents very involved. The PTO is strong and there are a lot of great families who help out in numerous ways. The teachers we have encountered so far have a lot of experience working with a diverse classroom. The children seem to have such a wide range of ability- yet they connect with all of them. The set aside individual or small group time to work with the children who are a bit advanced and those that are a bit behind. That is in part due to the many parents who come in a help do this as well as the teachers who set it up and encourage their involvement. I really have no complaints although I do have concerns. The principle and many of the seasoned staff will be retiring in a couple of years. So hopefully the new staff to come will be as good as the current one.
