    Overall Experience: My review on J.O.Johnson High School will have to be positive. The school has always been the underdog amongst the various other schools within the city. Through all odds, the school has came on top of everything and everyone else who thought we wouldn't succeed. Its an excellent academic based school, you will learn something new everyday.
