As part of the newest high school in North East ISD, the Claudia Taylor Johnson Band has only been in existence for 5 years. For the local community and the city of San Antonio, Texas, it has been exhilarating to watch the group quickly establish itself as one of the premier high school marching bands in the country.
The 240 member band has received both state and national recognition to include advancement to the UIL State Marching Band contest in 2010 and 2012, where they were named a finalist in 2012, and Bands of America Grand National 8th Place Finalist in 2011. The Johnson Wind Ensemble placed first in the Area E 5A Honor Band Contest and fifth in State, an NEISD record for the 5A High School Honor Band Contest. The Johnson Winterguard has competed at WGI World Championships in Dayton, Ohio where they have placed 9th in the world both times they attended.
