Johnson City Schools Reviews

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.

I recently transferred to East Tennessee State University in Johnson City and I have been very happy with that decision. I came here for the music programs, both the bluegrass and classical and the experiences with both departments have been excellent. The professors are involved and helpful in pushing towards success, and I have definitely grown in my music since transferring here.
I had an amazing experience with Johnson City school systems. There main goal is to get there students a step ahead to prepare them for college or the workforce. Science Hill High School is one of the best schools for hands on learning. They have many different programs in the CTE building like auto maniac, cosmetology, child and lifespan development, and wood shop. The academic classes are also wonderful and push students to work at an advance level. I will always be proud to say I completed my education in Johnson City school systems.
