Juniata County School District Reviews
The teachers are hands on learners and great communicators. The High School sports are also very well presented and have good attitudes as student athletes. You have a good student body throughout school and has many activities that gets the students involved. There are many clubs such as SADD, FFA, HOSA, Soccer, Basketball, Softball, Volley Ball, Cheer Leading, Band, Chorus, and so so much more! On assembly days for Pep Rallies, you will get a kick of laughter from the students and get them ready for Friday Night Lights during football season. Juniata High School is great and all around a friendly school to attend.
The county has limited population and low school taxes, but that leaves less resources to make great education. The teachers are generally well-qualified, but seem to have low morale. The students are apathetic and their attitude is fostered by their parents. Parents expect the school to take care of their children, but will fight, if the student needs correction. Facilities, materials and technology is old, deteriorating, replaced only after the replacement is being replaced by other districts. When technology is available, teachers often have limited resources for learning how to use it and do so at sub par levels. Parents and the community doesn't see the need to keep pace with developing employment sectors. Guidance counselors have actually discouraged students from pursuing college education and are poor at assisting in furthering education or scholarships.
An education at Juniata County School District is what you make of it. Like many things in life there are people who excel and people who do not. This applies for teachers. Some teachers will go above and beyond for their students while others could care less. A thing that would be good improvement is for students to become more involved with school activities and for the administration to focus equally on sports and on arts and music.
