I was a student at Johnston High School and had nothing but horrible experiences while I attended. A very small percentage of the teachers actually care about teaching. The schools administration is a joke as well. I was on an IEP and they did literally everything they could to stop me from being successful ...  Read more

As a alumna of JHS I can tell you that I was the only person to be accepted into a tier one university and most of the kids in the top 10 are at URI and RIC. There is a general lack of authority between administrators and teachers. The school was such a mess 10 years ago that teachers just feel the will ...  Read more

This school is terrible!!! DO NOT send your child here. I left my sophomore year because I just couldn't take it anymore! Constantly getting harassed by the students, the teachers/principals DO NOT take that seriously when they really should. Seeing as how bullying is now illegal in Rhode Island. But ...  Read more

I went to Johnston High School and am attending a college with a 30% acceptance rate. The honors and dual enrollment classes are the only classes you should let your kid take.

I had both college-prep classes as well as honors, and regardless, I always had teachers who were dedicated and motivated to helping me learn. I participated in a slew of extracurricular activities, and looked forward to homecoming ...  Read more

I am an alumni of Johnston High School and have had nothing but great experiences. My son recently graduated from Johnston and the teachers did nothing but make sure my son graduated because of his disability with learning. Everyone has their own opinion on Johnston High School and I feel as though people ...  Read more

Horrid school, most classes are below age level. Everything is old and falling appart, it is disgusting.

Johnston is a great high school that is too often under-rated. The courses offered in the honors program are top-notch. Many students graduate with numerous college credits. Higher ranking students have gotten accepted to the best colleges in the country. The sense of community and pride at this school ...  Read more

I recently graduated from Johnston High School, and have only had good/great experiences in my high school career. Unfortunately some of the problems with the school are often attributed to the staff, while most the problems that the school endured (while I attended) were issues of the budget and school ...  Read more
