This school is great. I am very happy I put my kids in this school

Johnson High is one of the best kept secrets in Hall County. Their academic program is hugely successfu. The International Baccalaureate progam is outstanding. The graduates of this program are receiving scholarship offers from some of the best colleges and universities in the Southeast.

I graduated from Johnson High 27 years ago, and when we moved back to Gainesville, I wanted my kids to go there.

Johnson High is a failing school compared to other local high schools. They will fail students that miss more than 8 days per semester even if their grades are passing and absenses are exscused. They do not offer alternatives to help once they enforce this policy. Your on your own.

Johnson High School is becoming into a very bad school. Everyday you hear about fights that go on, and gang activity is really high. Teachers don't seem to do much about it.
