The education my son received at Hiram Johnson was like none other. The teachers were key influential figures tremendous in the success of my son's acceptance into UC Berkeley. The stories you hear about Hiram Johnson are not true. They are really trying to work towards becoming the pride of their community. My daughter currently attends Hiram Johnson and sees a culture change occurring on campus. The teachers, students, staff, and administration are working hard to build a family not just at the school, but around the community. It is up to the parents of the students at Hiram Johnson to step it up now and contribute to this cause and dismantle the cataclysms surrounding Hiram Johnson High School.
