Over the years, I have seen DD Johnston improve. The teachers really care for their students. They try hard to help them improve. I also like that over the years they've added many special events and activities for the students. My children are happy and content attending DD Johnston!

This school has a great principal but the office staff needs to leave. My child is afraid of the staff here and because of that we had to move.
