Greater Johnstown School District Reviews

The things I love about Greater Johnstown High School was the very diverse set of students that attend there and help make the learning experience very exciting and interesting. This school tries its hardest to be a good educator and make the High School experience fun for its students including all of the extracurriculars. However, sometimes some bad apples and teachers fall through the cracks and end up making the school a little unpleasant at times and the administration has a hard time dealing with that person and agreeing with the students on the issue instead of listening to them they mostly just pass it off as "they're just kids" which is not a fair assumption to make but overall Greater Johnstown High School is a great experience and you would be lucky to have your children in attendance there!

I attended Greater Johnstown most of my school years and graduated in the top 5% of my class. The courses I took prepared me to continue my education in the field that I am currently studying in college. However, I would encourage more accounting classes and classes that would teach company benefits for when we enter the working world. I started working my freshman year and continue to do so to help fund my college tuition and I am now being offered a few benefits which I am trying to learn about. General classes and my field of study classes were offered at my school but nothing more. Our school has a great sports program in which I participated in football, basketball and baseball, while working and maintain a 3.87 GPA. Sports has helped me interact with other students and learn different personalities being a diverse high school. I would highly recommend Greater Johnstown to anyone moving to our area.
This school is very chaotic. Some teachers are only there to act as babysitters and the ones who actually want to make a difference get overrun by the students who are used to only 'babysitters' not educators. This school does very little to help seniors prepare for college. They don't prepare students for real life. Also, this school, like many, teaches in classrooms where you sit and listen to a lecture, or copy notes off a board, and this may help some but it doesn't meet all the different students and their learning needs. Overall, I should have cyber-schooled, at least there I wouldn't have had all the distractions and delays caused by out of touch teachers and out of hand students.
