I know that this school has the best teachers and staff that love the children. We have so many new things happening at Johnsonville this coming school year. Your child will be blessed to attend. We will have our Battle of the Books, Science Olympiad, Leggo Competition, Elementary Chorus, Art Contest, and many events within the school as well. We have shown much growth in our academic achievement over the past year or so and we will continue to make strides to becoming a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. This school is tucked in the sweetest corner of Harnett County. Come stop by and see what all we have going on at Johnsonville.

This school is deplorable my child got lice 5 tumes last year and has already got it again this year the people in charge of this school never own up to anything. The blame of any problem is always put off on someone else and no one is ever held accountable, nor does anything ever change.
