The changes will take place during the summers of 2016 and 2017
Clogged toilets, wandering visitors and a gloomy entrance that’s not handicap accessible are just some of the building-related issues that have plagued Johnson High School.
However, long-awaited building improvements are finally on the horizon. At a District Five Committee for Planning and Economic Development meeting on April 5, community leaders learned of some changes coming to Johnson High School.
Two students from Johnson High School work on a design to send to a laser engraver. The kids are getting stipends to help staff the Arlington Hills Community Center’s Createch Studio, and teach others how to use Johnson High’s laser engraver and 3D printer. The equipment is on loan from the school for the summer. (Patrick Larkin/Review)
During the school year, some Johnson High School kids couldn’t get enough of the new 3D printers and laser engravers, which came as part of the school’s addition of aerospace and engineering curriculum back in 2013.
Starting next fall, Johnson High School will test a later start time. St. Paul Public Schools is considering doing later start times at high schools and middle schools across the district. (Patrick Larkin/Review)
District decides to test later start time on East Side school
For Johnson High School students, it’s time to say goodbye to the yellow bus, and hello to Metro Transit.
Starting next September, most Johnson students will be taking public transit to school. And, they’ll start school an hour later in the day.

The date of the 100-year anniversary celebration of the Johnson High School boys hockey team is getting close at hand.
The celebration will be Saturday, Dec. 21, and things are beginning to really heat up for a get-together of East Siders that might prove hard to handle -- especially when it involves old hockey players, with old memories.
The event is billed as “The Pride of the East Side.”
