Johnson City Schools Reviews
Johnson City Schools has provided such a wonderful place for you to be your best. Science Hill has offered me personally challenging classes where I could find potential in myself I never knew existed. I am so thankful for the classes that have pushed me especially their career technical education programs. I am also thankful for the staff at SHHS who have always put their best effort out for students to help them achieve their goals. They will give you extra work, and really push you until you understand. SHHS has given me an amazing high school experience. They provide so much for the students from school supplies to our prom dress closet just so everyone could have a perfect night without a money obstacle. They have provided us with identification badges for our safety to know who is and who is not a student. There are very few things I would change about SHHS; the short list consists of: more covered walkways for raining / snowing situations and more ACT exercises.
In elementary school, my experience with Johnson City Schools was wonderful; however, that was before I had real issues or any control over what I did academically -- middle school was relatively similar. There are some wonderful teachers at Science Hill High School, yet somehow there are almost just as many who are completely under-qualified for their jobs. Administration (for the most part) was completely useless in times of actual, genuine need; 98 percent of what they care about is sports. We had one counselor who actually did her job well, cared about the arts, and loved people for their character as opposed to just judging it off looks or academics. overall my experience with JCSchools was pretty average -- there was some bad, but there was also much good.
At Science Hill, there is a great variety of classes to choose from, with difficulties suited to challenge every student. There is also a multitude of clubs and extracurriculars to choose from for any type of interest. However, the cafeteria food is not the most nutritious and counselors can disappear for days on end without a word’s notice.
