There really isn't much good I can say about Johnson Middle School. They have a great music program for a middle school, but besides that, it's just not a great school. The vast majority of teachers don't care, and the principal isn't very involved. Lots of fights happen here, and student discipline isn't enforced well at all. Like the previous review said, unless you're in the STAR program, they really don't care about you. Also, JMS scored relatively low on the FCAT compared to other schools in the area, and they really only seem to be concerned with getting kids out there and sending them to high school, and they don't do a great job of preparing students for the next level. If you are considering moving to the Melbourne area, please don't send your student to JMS. I attended this school several years ago, and I'm glad it's over.

My daughter is in the STAR program at JMS and I cannot conceive of a better education than what she is getting. The teachers in the program are basically very caring and do everything they can to help the kids succeed. They are very timely with their posts on edline - keeping parents in the educational loop. I have been extremely disappointed in the way her elective classes are conducted; EVERYTHING I just said about the STAR program and teachers is the opposite in her elective classes: teachers don't seem to care, kids do next to nothing in these classes, teachers don't stay in contact with parents - regardless of any issues that arise. An example: Office is staff is fine.

The teachers (esp inclusion teachers) are so hard working, and the front office staff is friendly, and wants parents to be involved. My kids even feel like they can talk to the front office staff (esp Denise) as people, not as mean school officials.

I have a child at this school and noticed the peaceful happyclimate at this school almost immediately. I had toured several other schools in the area and the climate was either scary or stifling... by the second school ( one of which was private and expensive ) I was starting to question my move to florida , but when I toured with one of the guidance counselors students in the halls all smiled waved and said hello to him as we toured the facility as did staff. Everyone was smiling happy warm and welcoming. Now that my child is in their second year at the school I am volunteering at the school quite often and am convinced that my first impression was accurate and that I made the right choice. Kudos to Johnson...Im not certain how they do it but my child and are are glad they do.

I was a student at LBJ and I'm in 8th grade. Sadly, I moved to New Mexico this summer and am no longer attending Johnson. I was in STAR, (a gifted program) and I know that they were doing good with thier teaching. The teachers are so nice, and I think it's a great environment. I totally recommend this school.

The whole state has problems with there education system, and locally is no different. It's hard to believe that the teachers even have certificates, are qualified or even care about the children. I feel that my kids won't be prepared for life so much so that we're planning on moving.

Johnson could be brought up to a higher standard with a few modifications. First being the number of students being reduced. Secondly there are very few after school activities. Next the level of discipline needs to be increased.

I'm afraid children attending this school are just not prepared for high school, the academic standards are so low. No homework assignments, the work is much too easy for the children and the amount of teachers in and out of this school is appalling. I'm very concerned at the low academic standard of the school. After moving here from New York the difference is just incredible. Our children are not getting the education they deserve here.

My daughter loves Johnson and so do I. They are strict on the kids and dont let them get away with stuff. Security is tight and you dont see kids wondering around the property or the school. When I drop off my child I know shes in the right place!

Johnson provides a diverse academic program that meets the needs of its gifted, regular, and exceptional education program. Its music department is superior; it feeds its music students into another great music program at the high school. Parents are involved to a certain extent; in particular in the gifted and advanced academic programs.
