Johnson is a very different school from others I’ve gone to or I’ve visited, it’s a very diverse school, but through the diversity there’s a bond and a connection with each and every student. Seems as if the whole school is one big family instead of just a community, everyone knows one another and tries to boost one another up. We take pride in who we are and where we are! We’re the Govies and we’re on the east side, which in most peoples view they only see a school in the ghetto, but they don’t know the whole school is full of young and aspiring scholars.

I go to Johnson Senior Highschool and I strongly feel that Johnson Senior Highschool really courage students to work hard and push forward to their dreams. There’s even classes to support students for their future. Something I would like to change about this school is the outside bleachers for the football field. I hope they expand that. Overall about Johnson Senior Highschool, everyone is nice and very helpful!
It is a amazing experience here! It is one that you will not find anywhere else. The community is very diverse resulting in a awesome community. The students here are amazing as well. Every single one is super friendly and outgoing. Here at Johnson, students deeply care about their education and I believe that every one here gets a chance to recieve the strongest education possible. This is all thanks to our amazing teachers and staff as well. Teachers at Johnson are all kind and affectionate. Overall, my experience here at Johnson has been filled with nothing but happiness and enjoyment. The memories that I have here, I will never forget.
