    Extracurriculars: We have a lot of extra-curricular activities! We have activities involving sports, art, government, business, etc. Everyone has a place, and everyone can join a club. However, if you don't have a club that you're necessarily interested in, you can create your own. Our school staff is all for creativity, and encourage involvement within the school. They clubs aren't overly selective as long as you have a passion for a particular club, you can get involved! Overall, the school is very good on this aspect.

    Overall Experience: At Johnson you become apart of a "huge family," because this school has a outstanding legacy in Huntsville, Al. Before I came to this school I went to a school in North Carolina, and the experience is completely different. This school is truly like a family, because their is a caring atmosphere. The people are nice, the teachers/administrators are caring, and outside parents are supportive. The J O J alumni are all over this city, and help the school with whatever it needs. This school is so unique, because of the legacy it carries. It has been around for many years, and has given a lot of people hope. Many examples show that you can make it out of this city, and be very successful. The entire staff pushes you to go to college, and the school has introduced an outstanding program. It's called the "Cap and Gown Project," and it plays a very important part in this school. Many teachers came together to form this group, and a lot of the students joined. They take students out of town, and to various different college campuses. If I could, I would go to this school all over again. I would take the same teachers, make the same friends, and participate in the same activities. Besides...I am the last of a great legacy.

    Teachers: During my time at J O Johnson High School, I felt like the teachers did more for me/other students than they had to. They were always there to help me or anyone else when we needed it. They taught things in a way that everyone would understand, and cared about our progress. They were nice people who knew a lot, and helped us students learn a lot along the way. Their teaching styles were different in each classroom, and overall engaging for the students. I enjoyed my time at J O Johnson High School, and will forever be honored to be apart of the last graduating class.

    Health & Safety: The health and safety policies at this school is interesting. The school is actually getting better with the safety policies compared from years ago. We have more enforcement and the kids actually listen and respect their elders. Bullying has gone down thanks to many orginizations at the school that everyone can participate in. Which could group them together based off of personalities.
