Johnson-Brock Elementary is a consolidated school district formed in 1968 and located in rural southeast Nebraska. A building addition in 2002 allowed for a one-campus location, and the district continues to thrive as additional expansions are being made to the school. The district is committed to providing a safe, nurturing learning environment that empowers students to achieve their full academic potential. Highly qualified teachers, research based curriculum, exceptional parental and community involvement, differentiated instruction, and a spirit of teamwork are hallmarks of our school district.

Johnson-Brock Elementary has a long history of success. Student assessment scores, consistently above state and national norms, are the result of teachers, staff, and administration collaborating to set goals, monitoring and communicating academic progress, and providing interventions for student achievement.

Parents and community members are actively involved in supporting academics, youth activities, and special events. A strong parent teacher organization and school foundation contribute monies and time to the teachers and classrooms. An example of this support is the One School, One Book program, which allows families the opportunity to engage in shared reading at home while fostering a love for reading.

Each Friday afternoon the elementary students gather at assembly to recite a character pledge and anti-bullying promise. Students in each grade are recognized for their demonstration of character attributes. Johnson-Brock believes in not only recognizing academic success, but also encourages moral values to develop well-rounded citizens who positively impact the world around them.
