At John A. Johnson Achievement Plus (JAJ) we are a collaborative community committed to the academic success of all
scholars. As an “Achievement Plus” school education, recreation, wellness and other services are all here in one convenient
location. We work with our amazing volunteers and community partners to provide dental, medical and mental health services,
legal guidance, tutoring, housing and employment assistance here at school. With all of our on-site services, our ultimate
goal is to remove barriers that get in the way of our scholars reaching their full potential. At JAJ, we believe in creating strong
relationships to provide a positive physical, social and emotional environment for our students. Through shared leadership,
students, families, staff and community partners actively participate in student learning and achievement.
