The teachers at Junction City School district are unlike any that I have seen, experienced, or heard of. They connect with their students and put forth efforts that make day and night difference to students like me. We are prioritized and relationships are rich.
However, the problem with racism at our school is one that runs rampant and unchecked. Unchecked at least, before this year. I rated them three stars because of their ignorance regarding this subject. Students' lives are shaped at school, and so is their future. They deserve equal opportunity regarding both.
The teachers and staff at this school deserve five stars. The policies regarding racism, diversity, and social training earns a two.

Junction City is a small town in Oregon located just outside of Eugene. It contains a small population of only about 6,000; however that is one of the best things about it. What I have found to love about junction city school district is the tight knit community we have. Only having about 120 kids per class level allows us to all be close to one another and make the most out of our school experience as we can. I believe our staff works very hard to provide for us as best they can. They are truly concerned for how we are doing not just in school but outside of it. With the recent COVID-19 outbreak they were really able to show how much they cared about us. They worked very hard to help us out as best they could and give the seniors the best experience of graduating. At junction city you find a school district where everyone truly cares about one another and do a great job of having fun in school while learning.
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.
