Junction City School District Reviews

The Junction City Districts have been my home for my entire life -- I owe everything I am to the staff that nurtured my mind and character to the person they've become today. We never needed thousands of dollars of grants and donations to get things done just like any other richer school. What we lacked in funds we made up for in student-teacher connections, academic activities, and musical involvement. It's a loving community, though it's had its share of mistakes. But we've always been open to changing for the better. I couldn't be more proud to be a JCHS Tiger for my entire academic career.

At Junction City High School students are able to have a great experience through the helpful environment provided by staff. Like most high schools, homecoming is a big deal. But in Junction City the entire community gets involved. Every year students get to enjoy a night called Noise Night. During this the city closes off main street and the student body gets to show off their class floats in a parade downtown. After the parade, students are led back to the high school to enjoy a night of games and competitions. Student life isn't the only thing that is great about this school. JCHS is rated above average in school quality. Students here perform above average on tests, college readiness, and yearly academic improvement. When it comes to student success, test scores and college readiness is taken seriously and students are well informed on the standards to meet state Tests. Overall Junction City High School is a good fit for any type of student and will always help students succeed.
I graduated in 2013 and my family has been a part of the district for four generations. My great grandfather worked for the district, my grandpa and father have both graduated from this district. Through talking with them, I have seen the changes that have taken place over time. The teachers are very liberal in their ideals which they promote through their curriculum. Facilities are outdated and wont be renewed for some time due to money shortage which is due to poor planning and execution of the budget. The atmosphere of the school is degrading and I wouldn't send my children through such a place.
