Celebrating a Century of Excellence

In 1914, pioneers in the area gathered together to establish the Consolidated School District of Webster and Jefferson Townships, which eventually became the Johnston Community School District, as we know it today.

During the 2014 year, we celebrated our past, our present and our future.

What started as a one building district is now comprised of five elementary schools, two middle schools, a high school, an administrative resource center and a transportation/building and grounds facility. Within the next 5 years, the district will add a new high school and convert existing buildings to house new grade levels. The desire to provide our youth with the best education possible is the driving force behind these changes.

The district administration, staff, parents and community as a whole remain steadfast to one common goal…to provide each student with a quality education.

As we celebrated our 100th year, we honored our past. We joined together with students and staff of past years at an all-class reunion and honored the community members who served as board of directors. Students learned and celebrated how education has changed over the years.

One thing that all the years have in common is our children. Whether they started in a one-room school house or attended classes in a barracks due to growth or will open a new high school with new learning opportunities………our children are why our district has strived to excel and seeks to continue to ensure each student is well-equipped for whatever they choose to do in their future.

We thank everyone – all board members, superintendents, administrators, faculty and staff, students and parents for what you have done and what you will do daily to make our district great.
