Johnson Brock High School Reviews
Rating 3.96 out of 5 24 reviews
I enjoy the academics, the teachers are good a educating their students. Something I would like to see change would be that Johnson-Brock should sponsor more extra curricular activities. As a student I would love to be more involved with school.
I'm a sophomore at Johnson and I love having that small class feeling because I know all of my friends, they are my family. I feel like all of the people at Johnson are very good at having that small class cause they know everyone by heart. I wish I wasn't going to graduate because I would love to stay if I could.
Johnson-Brock gave me a family that I could never replace. The students, staff, and community members are all extremely friendly and welcoming.
Johnson-Brock has made me a better person for attending it. While some may say that the school's more focused on athletics than academics, Johnson-Brock has helped both me and my piers boost their academic success in the short and the long term.
My teachers were often very helpful. The reason that they lose stars is that the administration is completely biased and relies completely on last name basis. This is when certain students are treated better because of the last name they hold. One way that I saw this happen was through the school board. I am a part of an anti-tobacco group known as No Limits, for two days out of the year, I miss school to attend an event known as Kick Butts Day. I went to the school board to try and get No Limits to become a school-sponsored event to get more students involved. I tried incredibly hard, they completely swept it under the rug and dismissed us, it was never talked about again. A student wanted rodeo to become school-sponsored, it was passed.
Teachers are great and are willing to help students learn and acheive goals. They also do a good job of helping students prepare for college. The school spirit was lacking while I was there but it has improved since then a little bit.
Johnson-Brock takes a lot of precautions when it comes to health and safety. Everyone knows everyone and their business so everyone is close enough to keep each other safe.
I've had an okay experience at Johnson-Brock. I think Johnson is a really good school built on the ideas and fundamentals of knowledge and family involvement. However just because of my own few bad experiences at this school isn't going to hold me back from saying good things. I believe that many of my classmates have had good high school experiences, but I just haven't had that great of one. Being the new kid in a small judgemental town is tough.
The lunches at school aren't that bad but they aren't amazing. They have to follow government rules and regulations according to Michelle Obama. We have on campus lunch and are not allowed to bring any type of outside food in unless it is in your own wrapping or container. The menus change and there's healthy food options. For the kids with special dietary concerns they either bring their own lunch or are served something else.
The teachers at Johnson-Brock genuinely care enough to treat each student as if they were their own children. They take time away from their families and after school to help students who are struggling whether it be at school or even at home. The family atmosphere between the students and staff at Johnson-Brock is incredibly unbelievable. Everyone looks out for each other. Many teachers are open minded to students and try to teach in a way that everyone can understand. They apply real life situations to the text making it helpful for every type of learning whether one has a disability or not.
In the school of Johnson-Brock we have plenty of activities to get involved in. Administration are always involved and helping out with extracurriculars and many devote most of their time to it. We have FBLA, FFA, NHS, Speech, Drama, Art, Math, 4-H, Quiz Bowl, Volleyball, Basketball, Football, Track, Power lifting, NHD, Science Fairs, Book clubs, Journalism, and Broadcasting. Most of us devote anywhere from 10-14 hours a day at school depending on what activities are taking place. It's easy to get involved and it is highly encouraged. Every extracurricular is taken seriously and takes place from 3-5 day's a week sometimes even on Saturdays.
They invested all time and energy into me that they could
We do not have the best available to us but we manage
The diversity of my school is slim. African-Americans are definitely a minority but we equally accept each individual. Even though we have groups of certain types of people I wouldn't go as far as saying we have cliques. I feel like there is very little peer pressure. We all seem to do the same stuff because we want to, not because we are forced by others.
I always feel safe while attending school. We have the proper emergency drills for natural causes like a tornado or if an armed stranger came into the building. We have no need for metal detectors or school ID's to be shown. Our secretary acts as the nurse and takes care of any health issues. Any serious emergency is taken care of with a call to 911. The staff is very well trained in knowing what to do in an emergency situation.
The academics did include a few college prep courses.
I believe I received a good education to help prepare me for college.
