The typical Johnstown student is serious about school work and very well-rounded. Our students make their best effort to excel in classes, extracurricular activities, and separate jobs all at the same time. We are hard-working students that help each other to attain our goals.

The typical Johnstown student can be summed up in one word: atypical. Every student is unique and passionate about their own individual things, so it would be far easier to give you some examples of the sort of students I pass in the hall.

There are what we call the "alum." These are the kids whose parents, and sometimes grandparents, attended our high school, which was built in 1963. Almost all of them live on farms and find great joy in the school holiday which we call "Drive Your Tractor to School Day." Ag-Science is very popular with these particular students as well! Even though we have a school-wide uniform, they jazz it up with their muddy boots and usually drive really cool trucks.

Band lovers are next, and they are everywhere. Once in a while our band will go on a day trip to perform somewhere and school literally feels like a ghost town. They make up almost half of our 550 student count and they are friends with every person they pass in the hallway. A band student is a hardworking student because balancing long practices with lots of homework is a typical day in their shoes.

When you watch classic high school movies where the football and basketball players are super cool and the cheerleaders are stuck up, it is completely phony. My school defies all odds in this category because I live in such a small town and have been in classes with the same kids since Kindergarten. No one acts like they're better than anyone else because they know that they aren't. We come to learn, not to vote on the homecoming queen.

I can only think of one more type of student at Johnstown, which I would call the "ones who do everything." These kids will assist the IT department, lend a helping hand to any janitor in need, and always look out for the new students. The teachers adore them. The students adore them. The community adores them.

So to answer the actual question at hand, a typical Johnstown student is outgoing, involved in plenty of extracurriculars and loves to help out in the community. They may find themselves on a farm, in a bible study, or tutoring students in need of a little extra help. A Johnstown student is one who values education as evidenced by our 95% graduation rate and over all strives to make each day better than the last.
