Facts

Lady Bird Johnson High School opened on August 28, 2008. The school mascot is the Jaguar. “Johnson Jaguars” was selected in November 2007 after an extended process in which suggestions were accepted from the general public, a committee of students and parents reviewed and narrowed the field of suggested mascots to a ballot of three finalists, and student vote determined the final decision. There is also a Johnson High School in Austin - named after Lady Bird's husband Lyndon - more widely known as "LBJ High School" built in 1975, that is also the "Jaguars".

School year

Johnson uses a traditional U.S. school calendar, with classes beginning the last Monday of August and ending in late May or early June. Students are given several holidays throughout the year (all federal holidays and one local holiday), in addition to two weeks off in December and January for holiday break and one week off in spring for spring break. Beginning with the 2010-2011 school year, the school, along with the district, has replaced the high school A/B block schedule with a seven-period day. The move to a seven-period day had been discussed by the district for several years as a cost-cutting measure. Many other districts similar in size to NEISD had previously made the change successfully. The district had previously maintained the block schedule because of the wide appeal to high school students and their families, but was no longer able to afford to do so.

The academic calendar is broken into two semesters (fall and spring) and further subdivided into nine-week grading periods, during which students are issued three-week progress reports and a report card at the end of the period, which contributes one quarter of their final grade in the class.

Classes are graded on a 100-point grading scale, and each grade the student earns over their four-year high school career contributes to their ultimate class ranking. The 100-point grade is then converted into a four-point scale grade which appears on their high school transcript. Special weights are associated to classes based on their rigor (Advanced-placement classes are weighted one full grade point more (on the four-point scale). Consequently, if a student achieved a 3.3 in an advanced placement class, they would receive a 4.3 GPA ranking), and less rigorous courses might actually count against the student.

NEISD does not award competitive honors to students - any student earning a GPA of 100 or higher "ties" for the position of class valedictorian. In some schools, this can lead to a very large number of class valedictorians (as many as 100) as a result of large graduating class sizes and the extra weight given to advanced placement classes. Cum laude, magna cum laude and summa cum laude awards are given based on the students' 100-point scale GPA upon graduation.
