    Overall Experience: The experience at JO Johnson High school is somewhat good. The school isn't a bad school its just the students that make the school bad. My favorite experience this year already is becoming a senior. I been waiting 3 years for this and it finally happened. I wouldn't choose this school again because the school really needs improvement.

    Overall Experience: Overall this school is okay. The good is the counselors, some teachers, & peers. The bad is some teachers & fellow peers. This school has had a reputation for awhile now & some of us students are trying to change that. Its pretty hard to do so hwhen some of the teachers Dont fully believe in you. The good outcome of this school is that it will teach/prepare you for "the real world"/ society.

    Overall Experience: The school is okay. They challenge your academics, though, which is a good thing. If you need help with financial aid for college or applying for colleges, they are good in providing the information.
