    "I loved the sporting events and how everyone got so involved and there were a lot of charity involvement with sports as well."

    "Most of my favorite experiences at Johnston are in extracurricular activities. The only problem is that the only people who remember these moments are the small amount of people who actually come to watch. As a female athlete involved in multiple sports it bothers me that there is a huge lack of support at our school for girls sports. In volleyball we made it to state for the fourth year in a row and the average number of students/faculty that come to watch is about 10. In basketball we've played in a quiet gym the whole season, it wasn't until we made it to the state championships that people actually came to support us."

    "The parents are very supportive, but there's a lot of pressure on the students to excel at what they do. That causes a lot of anxiety among a lot of the students because they're scared to fail. Which I view as a problem."

    "I felt the school excels at supporting the stars and high performers but there are a significant number of average students that fall between the cracks or fall off the radar of the school. It is a very wealthy district and one that I don't think is that accommodating for those kids that don't fall in that mold. Academically has a lot to offer and lots of students do well but lots do not. Because of its size it was difficult for that average student to fit in - insecure or not good enough to participate in sports or other activities like mock trial, etc."

    "Some of the teachers like Mr. Dowell and Mrs. Hoskins were exceptional and I felt like they cared about every student and made every effort to make students excel not only in their class but in life. Other teachers did an adequate job and met the minimum but I didn't feel like they impacted my learning or life very much."
