    "Poor state test scores, college readiness is below average as students are not passing entrance exams for math and english. The excellent teachers come for a year and then go elsewhere while the tenured teachers that arent teaching stay. No advanced class or computerized class like other area schools provide. Lack of extracurricular for students. A new principal is needed!"

    "I was oversold by the realtor on how well the grade schools and high school were. After moving from another small school in Wisconsin, I had a choice on this small district or one much closer to Chicago. Boy, did I screw up in thinking a smaller district would be more attuned to by son and daughters. My older son was taken aback by how permissive the teachers were towards athletes caught drinking - minimal reprimands, especially if they were starters on football or basketball. The peer pressure is to make fun of those with special needs or gay kids, not embrace them. My daughter came in with top notch grades from their junior high in math and science and was surprised that 9th grade pretty much repeated what she had in 8th grade (keep in mind she excelled at the jr.High due to her learning pretty much what they taught in her former 5th/6th grade class in Wisconsin). Some of the teachers care, but so many of the older ones seemed more intent on t/f and multiple choice tests, great for preparing your kids for college. Do your research - I wish I had."

    "Johnsburg High School cares about the students and their success! For a small school, your student will have a lot of opportunities to shine!"

    "Johnsburg High School is a school that is unique. You have a school that was on the verge of going from a small school to a medium school before the housing bubble popped. Classes are still small but all classes seem to blend well together. There is not much segregation between Freshman through Seniors. Are sports teams will be improving with going back to a conference that reflects more schools our size versus the larger Fox Valley schools. I think it says a lot that a lot of the teachers that teach are returning alumni that want the children to improve but also want and try to make the school improve with limited funds a small town can provide. However, with it being a small school just understand it is always hard to keep secrets and the kids learn quickly that everyone knows what is going on with your kids which can be good and bad because yes they know what is going on with your kid the community really tries to help all kids to and lift them up."

    "Very poor extracurriculars. Take a look at the website and compare honor activities/clubs/fine arts with the athletics. Bullying still runs wild-consider why the Homecoming queen was elected. 'Nuff said."
