About Us

The Johnson City School System has eleven schools with an enrollment of approximately 7,900 students for the 2015-2016 school year. There are 522 certified teachers, 273 classified employees and 37 administrators employed by the school system. Science Hill High School is comprised of the 10-12 campus, 9th grade academy, Career Technical Center and the Henry Johnson Alternative Center. There are eight elementary schools, one intermediate school and one middle school.

The State Collaborative on Reforming Education (SCORE) named the district one of the top three school districts in Tennessee in September, 2015. SCORE heavily considers academic achievement and student gains in its deliberations.

All teachers in the Johnson City School System are certified with no waivers or permits. Currently there are 20 teachers who have received National Board Certification and several who are in the process of completing the requirements for certification. Three hundred fifty-eight of our teachers have Master's degrees or higher. All Johnson City Schools' teachers have met requirements for highly qualified status as outlined in the state standards for No Child Left Behind.

Johnson City Schools consistently scores above state and national ACT and SAT scores and our TCAP academic performance exceeds state and national averages in every discipline and grade level tested. We also achieve exemplary ratings at all levels on all non-academic indicators such as attendance, promotion and drop-out rate.
