    My son was special ed and integrated into the regular classes. I am really impressed with the preschool and his 1st grade teacher. But as a whole I am not impressed with the school. I've known too many people in the resource room programs passing when they shouldn't be. Girls who find themselves pregnant are pretty much pressured to leave. Sports and theater are the most important things. And last year TWO KINDERGARTEN students were let off the bus at the wrong stops. One driver stopped at East Leech Park when a 5 year old thought she saw her mom's car. And he let her off. The other was let off randomly and was found wandering in the cold and snow several hours later. When they promised to look up the tape off the bus to see where she was let off to help the cops search Julie never even pulled the tape. There are aides on every bus but there is still a huge issue with bullying. It is even happening in the kindergarten classes. Over all I am not impressed with the school anymore and have decided to relocate.

    My son has attended Johnson school for k-3 and has had a wonderful experience thusfar. The teachers are knowledgable caring and willing to work with any student no matter the circumstances. They offer a variety of ways for parent to get involved and have an open line of communication between parents teachers and administrators.

    My personal experience at Johnson has been excellent. My son is in Kindergarten this year with a teacher that goes above and beyond. At the beginning of the year my son started a little behind in reading. The problem was immediately brought to my attention and along with a group of staff we made a learning plan for him. She is not the only teacher there that is awesome; one of my previous teachers teach there as well. When I attended school she was a very influential part of my life. Also the principal is terrific she knows every parent and student by amazing. My experience here has not been long but it has been more than I could have ever hoped for. I am proud of Johnson School its staff and students.
