C.A. Johnson News and Events

  • A Message from the Principal

    Dear C.A. Johnson High School Community,  

    Welcome to the Hornet's Nest.  As principal of what I consider to be an AWESOME school, we are preparing for manyPrincipal  exciting things to take place this year and beyond.   We are excited to have students in the classroom and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning.  It is our mission to help every child feel welcomed, connected, and a part of our C.A. Johnson family.  We strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic abilities and to be college and/or career ready by the end of four years.  

    This year's theme is SAC - "Student Achievement, Accountability, and Climate."  Along with your assistance, we will continue to foster an optimal teaching and learning environment for all students.   

    I encourage you to become active in our Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) which meets monthly.  The PTSA is a wonderful way for you to share ideas and support our mission.  I sincerely believe in a school environment that is collaborative in nature and draws on the strengths of all stakeholders, as we all strive for improving student outcomes.  Working together makes a difference in the lives of our students.   I look forward to working with all of the wonderful students, parents, and stakeholders this year.


    Veronica Scott, Ed.D.
