I loved all the events of course. Clubs, school dances. Would most definitely fix the bathrooms and improve the cooking and menu. I know they’re trying their best, but the school hasn’t been the same maintainer wise since 2013/2014. But no hate at all!

I really liked my time at JHS. I created close bonds with teachers, students, and the administration. While some people might enjoy their time, if you take the time to get involved, it will be a great high school experience!
In my opinion staying involved in schools activities will make your experience ten times better. I played on Johnston's basketball team all four years of high school and that was one the best experiences I had throughout high school. Also, I helped with the disabled kids basketball team after my season was over. So even when my teams season was over I could help others with the same sport. Lastly, when it cam to the battle of classes and pep rallys' it made my experience fun too.
