About Us

Johnson High School Japan Alumni Association

 

Johnson High School

School Years: 1959 - 1973

 

About our school . . .

 

Open (August, 1959), just 14 short years, Johnson High School was a wonderful collection of old wooden buildings arranged to form an American high school campus in Japan. In the Fall of 1959, a group of inspired students assembled to form the first student body. The school educated and graduated hundreds of students until its closed in 1973. The school was moved to Yokota and the Johnson High School, as we knew it no longer existed.


We now have a virtual school for all the alumni of Johnson High School, for anyone who attended and called Johnson home. These articles and pages assembled here in this website can now be our high school campus. For it was the people that made up the school, not the buildings. And, as long as there’s a little part of Johnson within each of us, the spirit of Johnson can never die. “...High in spirits we’ll remember you.” — The Johnson Legacy.

 


Important Statement

On April 21, 2016, the Johnson High School Japan Alumni Association Board of Directors approved the revised By-Laws of the Johnson High School Japan Alumni Association, a nonprofit organization. The By-Laws were revised to reduce the confusion and contradictions of the original By-Laws. The revised By-Laws set out how our Association will operate going forward and a copy of the JHS By-Laws are available on our website.
