Open Quote Johnson Elementary offers an excellent education. The quality of teachers is top-notch and the class sizes are small. The after school programs are plentiful and the community of parents (including many UVA professionals, doctors and post-graduate students) is active. Close Quote

Open Quote Johnson Elementary is a wonderful school. The class sizes are small, allowing the students to be taught on an individual basis. The community is wonderful, with many of the students living in the surrounding neighborhoods. There are numerous after-school programs and many fundraisers, PTO meetings, school festivals, etc to get involved with. Our son has truly excelled at Johnson and we are so grateful to the wonderful teachers and staff. Close Quote

Open Quote We waste money in my school every day. We have about an 11 to 1 student teacher ratio and the children still do not learn. Why? Because the school district keeps throwing money at us, so the 15% of staff that care AND are hard-working don't just have to make up for regular slackers, we attract the worst slackers because they pay and cronyism are rampent. We even have one "teacher" that didn't have a license for years but keep getting extensions because of her 'frends'. I wish I could leave but I look at the students in my class and I know they only get a few chances and I have to be one of those shots to knowledge if at all possible. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
