Good supportive teachers, although one on one office hours are hard to obtain. Some teachers rush subjects and teach what they feel neccisarry just to pass a student. Clubs are not very active and athletics are decent with dedicated coaches. The guidance staff are very helpful and will develop a relationship with each and every student, they're possibly the best asset to the school. The students display rude behavior and racist attitude toward students of other race, making a school day possibly intimidating. Otherwise a good school dedicated to preparing a student for the future and a good teacher/student ratio.

When I came to ALJ a couple years ago, the community welcomed me with open arms and I immediately felt like I belonged here. The students are overall pretty open-minded but like every school, there is always those couple closed-minded individuals as well. Most of the teachers are overall excellent and care about their students. The sports are decent overall, but unfortunately, there is some favoritism with certain teams and people. There is an ample amount of clubs and activities at this school, but I wish there was a little bit more clubs. The school is not exactly diverse either, but people are accepting of the few minorities here. The school definitely prepares you for college, and they really push that on the students, and sometimes it is a bit too much (especially with certain subjects). Even though there is some flaws with this school, I would definitely come back here again in a heartbeat.
Arthur L Johnson high school has changed my life for the better. My courses were challenging, but never too difficult and my teachers were always more than willing to help me succeed. I truly felt that my teachers were genuinely concerned about my well-being and wished great success on all their students. The guidance department is extremely knowledgeable and hardworking. Everything I could have possibly needed or wanted from a guidance counselor, I was able to find in mine. My teachers helped me shape my future goals and allowed me the opportunities I needed to make those dreams come true. If I had to do high school over again, I would choose to go back to ALJ without hesitation.
