    "I'm currently an 8th grader at Johnson and I'd like to say that our school does have a reputation for being less than desirable, but this has changed over the past 3 years as IB was introduced to the school I find that I'm leading a great deal about how life actually works and I'm not just memorizing useless facts for a test. Johnson also provides several programs that are extremely enjoyable such as sports ranging from soccer to cross country, as for clubs we have several such as Math Counts(a orginzation that tries to help other in worse situation than theirs with math and also competes in tournaments),T.S.A (a club that is based around technology students compete in district,state and possibly national events with projects that can range from Co2 powered cars to robotics and even debate on technical issues) there is also O.M (which is a competition that involves creativity to solve problems and also has theatrical proformances to show case theses inventions). Johnson is the school I like to call home and I encourage you to enroll in one of the best schools I have ever attended"

    "This school is terrible! The "so called" IB program is a joke! They lack leadership and need to just close down! They gave the IB titile because they were an F school so they were trying to clean it out and get in some good kids! They have fights all he time and it is in an unsafe neighborhood where police are constantly on campus because of the issues in the surronding neighborhood! after one month I took my kids out! The teachers are the ones that no will hire any where else, so there only choice in this one! Kids are "given" there grades. As you can tell by the "D" rating the school is! When it's time for testing they know nothing! Please do your reasearch on this school just because they have a "IB" title that means nothing! The high school they want all the kids to go to is Southeast whitch lost it's luster years ago!"

    "The school has a bullying problem. They did eventually handle it in my case, but it took a lot of parental involvement. The classes are not really that hard, with one huge exception... math. Mr. Thompson has one of the best math classes I have ever been in."

    "As a parent of a 6th grader, we have had a wonderful transition from Elem to Middle School. We feel the administration has an open door policy and the teachers are fully committed to the students providing a safe learning environment. We have been impressed with the teachers going above and beyond for the students, as well as the students being so willing to volunteer at open house nights and other events. (What child wants to be at school when they don't have to be?) We have lived in Manatee County our entire lives and every school has a reputation, so we were skeptical--Middle school is a scary thing to parents. We researched JMS by attending the open houses, SAC/PTO meetings, and meeting with the principals and the overwhelming sense of pride and enthusiasm about the IB education from the staff and students calmed our middle school fears and we are very happy with our decision. Soaring to the top!"
