Athletics[edit]

In 2012 Johns Creek came in first place in Region 7AAAA and second in the state in the prestigious Regions Director's Cup, which measures success over all sports. In the 2012 Director's Cup, the JCHS Girls finished in first place in all programs in AAAA.

Johns Creek is in Region 6 in Class AAAAAA with geographic rivals Chattahoochee High School, located 2.5 miles away, and Lambert High School, located in nearby Forsyth County. Johns Creek and Chattahoochee share a particularly intense rivalry. Many of Johns Creek's students would be attending Chattahoochee if JCHS had never been built. Many of the athletes were a part of the Chattahoochee "Junior Cougar" feeder programs and played on the same youth sports teams prior to the existence of Johns Creek.

The 2009 cheerleading squad won the AAA State Championship, making JCHS one of the fastest schools to win a state championship in state history. The 2010 boys' tennis team followed, also claiming the AAA State Championship. In the 2011/2012 school year Johns Creek won state championships in both boys' and girls' tennis and were Region Champions or Region Runners-up in baseball, track (boys' and girls'), football, volleyball, swimming, cheerleading, golf (boys') and cross country (girls'). In the spring of 2012, five Johns Creek teams won the region championship and both the boys' and girls' tennis teams won the AAAA State Championship.

In 2010 the Johns Creek Volleyball team made the AAAA Final Four before losing to eventual state champion, Pope High School. In 2011 the Johns Creek boys' golf team placed 2nd in the state.
