10 Parent Reviews for Johnsburg High School

Very poor extracurriculars. Take a look at the website and compare honor activities/clubs/fine arts with the athletics. Bullying still runs wild-consider why the Homecoming queen was elected. 'Nuff said.

Horrible school district. If you want your child bullied to death by athletes or a huge lack of extracurriculars then go to Johnsburg. All of the other posts must have been by teachers. After 11 years in this district I could not be more disappointed in the lack of growth in technology or peer support.

JHS is a small school where everybody knows each other. The sense of the small, tight knit community brings everyone together. The teachers at JHS do a nice job of showing the students that they do truly care about them and are there for them. My math teacher won the Wal-Mart Teacher of the Year Award ...  Read more

I liked the fact that no matter how bad I or my fellow students acted and/or how badly we did on tests the faculty never gave up on us.

Johnsburg is a small little school and town where everyone knows everyone. And a majority of the time we all get along really well. The teachers are great and are so helpful to the students.

My son is a student at Johnsburg High. I have visited the school during teacher conferences and met his teachers. We discus general class activity, grading structure,(I don't like curves)and if teaching and goals are set higher than state(no child left behind curriculum). In fact there are with many ...  Read more

As a parent who moved into this district from a much larger school system in Virginia, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the overall high school expeirence my child is receiving. Granted, a school the size of Johnsburg has fewer offerings- both extracurricular and scholastic than a larger ...  Read more
