About John A. Johnson

  • JAJ


    At John A. Johnson Achievement Plus Elementary (JAJ) we are a collaborative community committed to the academic success of all scholars. As 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 provide dental and medical services, mental health services, legal guidance, and housing and basic-needs assistance right here at school! With all of our on-site services, our ultimate goal is to eliminate barriers that get in the way of our scholars reaching their full potential.

    At JAJ, we believe strong relationships are the foundation of a thriving school environment. As such, we strive to provide a positive physical, social and emotional environment that is student-centered and data driven.We are committed to best practices and strategies that address individual needs and interests through our Science and Social Studies-themed Areas of Study.  Our work is to focus on continuous improvement, and to provide guidance to help scholars become self-directed learners through culturally relevant instruction and materials.  We believe that through shared leadership with students, families, staff and community partners, we actively participate in student learning and achievement. We invite you to come and visit us anytime!
