This school is a joke, I am a 10th grade student at Johnson and not only am i having problems with the teachers attitudes about me needing a little help, some of this teachers cant even teach. This school also has cockroaches not only in the hall, but also in the cafeteria. Some of the teachers shouldnt even teach at this school, some are very rude, curse, and even use slang every time they talk. Not only is that unperfessional, but just wrong to allow these certain teachers to teach your children. I wouldnt allow my kids to go to such a bad school. The principal doesnt even care about the school, she promised the rotc program that she would help keep the program, but when the person that allowed this school to have the program asked her to meet with him, she called in sick on a tuesday and returned wedsday perfectly fine. I dont even know how this school is still running.

I rate this school a 5 because its actually a really great school. The teachers are so wonderful. This is my first year at Johnson. Even though they had to get rid of one of my favorite teachers...its still so so wonderful. We may not have a lot of money like other schools but at least we like to have fun while learning at the same time.!

This fall will be my 3rd year working at Johnson. The principal is very supportive of faculty and staff, and she sincerely cares about the students' well-being and education. I'm proud to be an Atomsmasher Teacher!

AWESOME SCHOOL! THey have a tough IB program that gets your child into college with ease, which if he/she does well, it will probably be their first choice college.

I have a child enrolled in Johnson that will graduate in 2005. He has enjoyed his classes and teachers during his three year attendance at Johnson. He has been in advanced classes and has been challanged and encouraged by his teachers. The teachers at Johnson are very qualified and professional. I intended to send my rising ninth grader to Johnson and she is looking forward to her high school experience at this school.

Education is not being a top priority at this school. Students are watching movies ( Finding Nemo, Pirates of the Carribean etc.) talking on cell phones during class and teachers are giving the students answers to the test the day before.What are they actually learning here?

My experience with school was not a happy one. Both of my children were discouraged by the lack of interest the teachers and faculty had in weather they succeeded or not. If I could do it all over again my children would not have attended this school. I feel as if my children are unprepared for college and I think they are realizing the same thing.

We had three children in the public schools in Chatham County. Two of them graduated from Johnson and one from Jenkins. We found Johnson to be a lot more laid back than Jenkins, comparatively speaking. Some of the teachers were very good at Johnson and some were mediocre. We recommend that parents research the schools before passing judgement. Do not base your decision on what you hear from one or two people. Most importantly, understand that every school has the potential to change, for the good or bad, every year. We saw that evidenced as our children approached high school. Graduates in our family: Jenkins-1996, Johnson-1998, Johnson-2002. I will add that hindsight tells us that we should have kept all three at Jenkins.

My 3rd child is about to attend this school. the teaching faculty were very instrumental in providing my 1st child with the knowledge she needed in preparing for the University of Georgia. My second child is now also preparing for college in the IB program there which 'will give her a head start in earning some college credits.' She is impressed with the concern the teachers have for her achieving her goals there. The experiences I have had with the the Ib director there and with a couple of the other teachers in both my students' career have been, for the lack of a better word, excellent
