JSA students have many opportunities both in and outside of the classroom to expand on their educational experience.

Music Lessons
lesson JSA is unique in that we are the only elementary school in the district to offer private music lessons. Students can study piano, woodwind, percussion, violin, and guitar. The Dr. Susan Lagos Scholarship fund provides scholarships for students who qualify.

Visiting Artist Program
orch JSA partners with organizations, such as CSPS, to bring traveling artist to Johnson. Some of the artists who regularly visit Johnson include: Gay Mendilow, Cedar Rapids Symphony/Orchestra Iowa, Angela Kariotis, and the African Drummers.
