La Junta Public Schools Reviews

3 reviews
My school experience was pretty rough, and it was all because of school itself but I have had so much family issues during high school to where I had so much going on in my life that high school was so hard to me. I had lost my house and family divorced and we have had major money issues. But aside from all of that I was stressing in high school, but I tried to keep my head straight and have my friends keep me on track which they did great. School was pretty fun with the sports because everyone here seems to have so much school spirit here and it was something to really enjoy in life.

I liked that they had some different classes and they have some really great teachers though they do have some teachers who aren't so great. I like that they make ar part of school just wished the incentives where better. I wish they were stricter with kids who disrupt class.
I like that the teachers really care about their students. I wish we could see more of the teachers come together to better the education of the younger generations.
