The teachers are excellent! Each one was very knowledgable of their subject. Reading and writing, science, math, and history were always taught very well, and I came away with great information. The teaching methods differed from teacher to teacher, but each one was able to help me learn. Scheduling was fairly straightforward and easy, just take the classes you have to take, and choose whatever electives you'd like. The workload was substantial, but nothing unbearable. Overall the academics were absolutely fantastic, preparing me for high school extremely well.

They say middle school years are some of the worst of your life. The time when people are the harshest, but it's all just a result of the search for yourself. James Weldon Johnson ensured that students were able to transition from elementary to middle and from middle to high. The style of classes and the open campus were two aspects that prepared me for high school. As a college preparatory school I was also able to attain credits for many classes that applied in high school. It fed my thirst for knowledge and was the stepping stone for entering into district, state, and national art competitions. The teachers truly cared and years after leaving their class, students still feel welcome. What James Weldon Johnson really needed a boost in was funding to advance students passions and a bigger cafeteria. . Overall, this school gave me the basis for everything I would be and am today. Surprisingly, it was not as scary as I made it out to be and were not the worst years of my life.
During my years of attending this school, I have found the several friends that I’ve stuck with until now, 4 years after. James Weldon Johnson helped me create a new mindset and experience new beginnings that have made me grow into who I am today. The activities and fun memories are the most cherish able things I will always remember at my times at the school.
