Ms. Renee Gilmore

Welcome to Johnsonville Elementary School!

My name is Renee Gilmore and I am proud to serve as Principal at Johnsonville Elementary School. The children and families that we serve are my top priority and we are focused on creating the best educational learning environment for our students! This is my 21st year working for Harnett County Schools.  I graduated from Methodist College with a degree in Sociology and earned my Masters Degree from Campbell University in School Administration. I taught at Johnsonville for ten years in kindergarten, first grade and fourth grade. I served as an Assistant Principal for eight years at Wayne Avenue, Buies Creek and Johnsonville Elementary. I have three children of my own, one girl and two boys, ages 19, 22, and 27. My daughter attends the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, my youngest son graduated from East Carolina University and my oldest son resides in Concord,NC. 

You can be assured that when your children enter our doors each day, they will be in a caring and nurturing environment that encourages each child to learn at their highest level. We look forward to working together with the teachers, parents and students here at Johnsonville  to have a wonderful year.

You are welcome to contact me with questions or concerns. I can be reached by email at or you may call the school any time at 919-499-4912. Let's make the 2021-2022 school year the best yet!
