    "They say middle school years are some of the worst of your life. The time when people are the harshest, but it's all just a result of the search for yourself. James Weldon Johnson ensured that students were able to transition from elementary to middle and from middle to high. The style of classes and the open campus were two aspects that prepared me for high school. As a college preparatory school I was also able to attain credits for many classes that applied in high school. It fed my thirst for knowledge and was the stepping stone for entering into district, state, and national art competitions. The teachers truly cared and years after leaving their class, students still feel welcome. What James Weldon Johnson really needed a boost in was funding to advance students passions and a bigger cafeteria. . Overall, this school gave me the basis for everything I would be and am today. Surprisingly, it was not as scary as I made it out to be and were not the worst years of my life."

    "I am a JWJ alumni. This school was the basis for my highschool education and it prepared me to the finest degree. I am now a graduating International Baccalaureate high schooler. The IB program is a prestigious program I would never have been accepted into, nor Excel in without the education I received at James Weldon Johnson or the love, guidance, and support the faculty here have and provide."

    "The teachers are excellent! Each one was very knowledgable of their subject. Reading and writing, science, math, and history were always taught very well, and I came away with great information. The teaching methods differed from teacher to teacher, but each one was able to help me learn. Scheduling was fairly straightforward and easy, just take the classes you have to take, and choose whatever electives you'd like. The workload was substantial, but nothing unbearable. Overall the academics were absolutely fantastic, preparing me for high school extremely well."

    "Very rewarding and challenging academically, providing me with great work ethic and drive to succeed. I was very well prepared for high school. The social scene was unique, having smart kids from all over the city coming together and sharing the experience of going to the same college preparatory middle school. That same aspect also made it somewhat difficult to hang out and get closer with friends, because they could live an hour or two away. Besides the hour drive to school every morning, it was definitely a worthwhile experience."

    "Overall, teachers are very high quality, providing great knowledge to students. Varieties of engaging lessons are perfect for learning new skills and subject-related information. All of my teachers were certainly invested in the class, making sure the course material was covered properly, and that work received appropriate credit."
