    Overall Experience: The school itself is alright the things that I would say that I dislike the most is the confusion that floats around the school, teachers not knowing half o hat they are teaching, the education level is not challenging but very weak, its is not a big thing but the lunch is horrible and mainly FAVORITISM.

    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.
