Juneau Borough School District Reviews

The Juneau School District has overall been a great experience for me. I have been in this district for my whole life, and it has been nothing but supportive and helpful. The academics are pretty good, other than the lack of funding and opportunities. Many things, such as sports, classes, and clubs are amazing in the school district, there is just a lack of teachers to support each and every activity. Sports are underfunded, but the coaches and teams are amazing. The teachers are awesome and the administration in amazing. The other schools in the area are great.

I had a lot of trouble with administration. There were some pretty serious allegations about an inappropriate teacher-student relationship that wasn't thoroughly investigated, and I was told I wasn't allowed to use any of the bathrooms for a while because I was trans. What was I supposed to do? Pee outside?
I feel safe, I feel important and the emphasis my school has put on the arts, specifically music, has been especially meaningful to me and life-changing. I have gained experiences through my connections with instructors all over the district that have allowed me to improve my skills in ways I couldn't imagine.
