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.
What I like about Johnson City school is it is all about learning in school and out of school. In my years there met a lots of people some were good and some not. The teachers there are good but does not know which type of students they should help. I had a great relationship with the administration especially the principal. The is poor because the menu never change it stays the same sence my first year in school system
Overall my experience in this school system has been positive. I feel I am very prepared for my college classes. I do however wish there were more opportunities to be involved in activities and clubs other than after school. I have worked during my junior and senior year and have been unable to continue being involved. My teachers and counselors have been very supportive and interested in my success.
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.
GOOD SCHOOL SYSTEM OVER ALL, I feel they push the kids too hard. Gotta have that $$$$$. But it is what it is, I hope to have my child moved to a new school distract soon...........................
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.
The school is mostly focused on profit. They invest heavily in football, so they can make all the money they can, just to keep investing in football. it's a cycle. the actual classrooms could use better books and technology.
My experience has been great, i have made a lot of friends. I work hard in my class and i can get help if i need it.
