Part, and Heart, of the Community
Our school is a classic on the outside, clean and modern on the inside, with natural light cascading through the windows. Johnson Elementary is more than a school – it’s a lively place open to the whole community. The beautiful East Side YMCA is connected to our building, and our students use this facility for physical education classes. Our teachers work to achieve greater understanding of each student for a more personalized approach to teaching and learning. John A. Johnson is an “Achievement Plus” school: education, recreation, wellness and other services are all here in one convenient location. We work with our amazing volunteers and community partners to bring dental services, mental health services, and housing and employment assistance right to our families. With all of our on-site services, our ultimate goal is to remove barriers and increase student achievement.
Your donation will help provide John A. Johnson students with supplies, tools and learning opportunities beyond the exceptional curriculum they already receive. Thank you for considering a gift to our school.
