Those prospective band members from outside of district or state must be a resident of our attendance zone in order to attend Johnson.


Typically, students and parents of prospective band members will be contacted through their current band directors. Students who move into the area from outside NEISD should contact Mr. Lipman as soon as you know you will be relocating to the Johnson High School attendance zone. We will begin communication to families who we believe are eligible for membership in the Johnson Band in early January 2018. If you have NOT received any communications, please contact Mr. Lipman at

Join the 25-200 Club

Join the CTJ 25-200 Club

The 25/200 Club is an EASY way to financially support the Johnson Band on a monthly basis! Here is how it works: 200 people giving at least $25 a month! That would provide the band $300 per year, per person OR $60,000 per year if 200 people sign up! $60,000 per year will go a LONG WAY in supporting the Johnson Band! EVERY dollar raised goes directly back to the band program!
