Overall, C.A Johnson High School shaped me into the young women I am today. Over the years, there were many teachers and administrators who provided me with great guidance and knowledge. The student body size made it easier for everyone to know each other and become close, basically a family. In the halls, there were many administrators and teachers who were parental figures and helped their students as they would with their own children.

I at first didn't feel that I belonged to the school and I felt a little over whelmed by a new surrounding and not sure if the school was a good fit for me. I remembered what my mother said to me "You only going to get out what you put in." I can honestly say that once I found myself, I developed a new fondness for my school and a renewed school spirit.
My experience at C.A. Johnson has been absolutely nothing short of amazing. The faculty and staff relationships I’ve built I know are sure to last a lifetime and I will forever be grateful for those experiences. The learning is so personalized and understandable that it allows even simplest of mind to grasp the hard concepts. Academic excellence is a priority C.A. Johnson High School and everything there is sure to help you grow in every way.
