My experience at Johnsburg High School has been well. I have been really challenged in some of my classes at this school. I like most of my teachers as most of they go above and beyond for the students. What I would like to change at Johnsburg High School is the communication between the staff members and the students is sometimes poor and there can be miscommunications! Also I would like to change the social workers because I don’t trust them and I have been told that I should really see a social worker to help me out in life.

I have had many incredible experiences here at Johnsburg. Being a small town in the Midwest though, it's hard to find diversity. For people looking to find a smaller school, Johnsburg is an excellent choice. The teachers are great, and the programs here excel. However, if you're looking to find a school with lots of diversity and strong representation of different cultures, I would look further.
I am currently a senior at Johnsburg High School, and one of the best characteristics about the students in our school is our spirit. Students are passionate about the clubs or sports they become involved with, and our school always has supported every student. There is always a group of students cheering on and supporting others, whether it be at a high school play or a sporting event.
