Crime & Safety
- Public Schools
We love the small-town feel of Johnston, while appreciating all the benefits and services it offers. We walk to the post office, bank, grocery store, and (a longer walk) to the library. There are great parks and lots of casual dining options close by. The schools are among the top in the state, and we have a new fire/police department. My only concern is the number of apartments going in right now - although I suppose that may be a positive for some folks looking to move in.
Small community with access to a bigger city. Johnston has great schools. The community is active but only amounts to light traffic. There is a variety of access to big box stores and smaller merchants. There is cultural diversity. There are a few large employers and a short commute for those who work in the city.
Great place to settle down, great schools, growing city, close to des moines. Would recommend if you want to start a family or something like that.
