Johnson College Prep Reviews
Rating 3.75 out of 5 24 reviews
I loved that I was able to have a voice and make changes around the school to ensure my peers had a better experience. I also loved how I got to fundraise money for events like homecoming and senior activities. I wish there were more clubs that focused on trades , financial literacy, and or different languages. Even though my senior year was cut short, I am happy for the little memories I have.
My experience at Johnson college prep me become a better person. They help me along with my college application, they make sure they check up each and last of the students to see how they doing.
I love how dedicated the teachers are in the school. To ensure that we get the best educations and are prepared for society.
I like the structured and disciplined environment that it created for students to feel motivated to strive to indulge in their education. The staff and teachers are very supportive providing the students with excellent opportunities. I enjoyed being involved with sports clubs and other activities that involved being a role model & showing the excellence of the school.
I been here since 11th grade now i'm an senior The school is very strict and they always giving out demerits out more then they give out merits. The teachers are good some are not.
the staff and academics are good but rules and the way they are implemented and reinforced could be improved.
As a senior at Johnson College Prep, it has been many setbacks and come ups. Johnson gets you ready for college and they discipline you at the same time. Yes, Johnson may be strict, but the discipline helps to mold you into the college student that will succeed in college.
What i liked about the school they have very professional teachers there but what i didnt like about it is we have to ran around the school everyday in the rain , snow. Thats the only part i didnt like and the principal was really nice and he listen to our problems if we had any problems
Currently, as a Junior at JCP, I am appreciative of my high school. JCP makes sure that their students are overly set for college. We are required to do community service and enrichment. They want us to be the best we can be and help us with discipline, so there are demerits for incorrect behavior that leads up to detentions, and no one wants to be in detention 2 hours after school hours. They also reward us by giving us merits that can be traded in for mints, school supplies, or used at the field day at the end of the year. Johnson’s AP and Honor classes are very competitive and I like how we compete with one another while at the same time encouraging one another. We are like a family. “I am a JCP Puma and I will be victorious!”
Going to this noble school was hell. They treat you like prisoners. The rules are extra and dramatic. They do not prepare you for college at all. You can get held back for pretty much everything. This school needs to adjust their rules by a lot.
It's not completely horrible but it's not an extremely good school. It's average to me and most things I can think about it are bad and probably wouldn't recommend this school to any one because even if you dont have bad behavoir you'll get detention also it's not a safe area.
My overall experience going to Johnson College Prep was cool. The school aim towards discipline more though. I wasn't a problem child, so I never experienced those consequences.
Johnson College Prep felt like home when I got home. I did not know what I was doing when I got here, but the school welcomed me and accepted me for who I am. I felt safe being at Johnson College Prep.
What I like about johnson is the support their are really adults here that care about you I just would like for them to care about education more than how we look because we get demerits for how we come to school than our behavior
I been in Johnson a long time it is a good school that gets you ready for college. They care about the students and have office hours to hep the student if they need help. I go to office hours daily to all of my teacher.
Something that I like about JCP is how much the staff care about students safety & how we come together as a school family. Something that should change about JCP is the schedule & some of the rules are unfair.
For a College Prep school, they feed you everything out of their hands. I can honestly say that going here has not prepared me for college whatsoever. I was robbed of a real high school experience just because I was a black kid from Englewood. I was always looked at and treated like an inmate in jail because of where I live. Mind you, I'm not even from Chicago. This school continuously controls us with uncalled for demerits and rules. I met great friends and I had a great advisor and some cool teachers. Other than that, I suggest you not send your child here at all.
The idea of the school is great but not for everyone. During my four years here, the school was really strict to help prepare us for the “work field”. Although I understood the idea, it hindered us from being teenagers. This school is great if you came from a middle school that didn’t do the greatest job of educating its students. JCP really focused on encouraging students to read more and grow their ACT scores.
I like that the school was focused on sending students to college. That's good. I don't like the way the school approached the topic. I don't like that the school was more focused on culture than academics in most cases. I don't like that the school forced students to suppress expressing themselves by not allowing piercings, hair colors, different types of bottoms, etc. The culture was overly forced and for a mass of 15-18 year olds, it was very suffocating in a way. Despite all of this, I would agree that the teachers are caring and outstanding. Most are good at teaching the material, they have high expectations, and students can seek them out for advise or help whenever and they're there.
I was really skeptical about attending this high school, but they have really helped me become more aware of how it is to be a college student! I was able to graduate on time and graduated with a 3.5 GPA. They helped me get into all my schools I had applied to as well
