Being a senior at Junction City High School and living in Kansas my whole life, I have been given the opportunity to experience this particular school for the past 4 years. I have received an adequate education here that has prepared me for college and made strong connections with teachers I will never forget. Along with education, I was apart of the J-Steppers Dance Team where I met amazing individuals and got to be apart of a group with the same goals as me. Sporting events were a big deal and celebrated strongly as a form of school spirit. On a more personal level, diversity was a large part of this high school and the way it was handled became an issue during some points in time. Discriminatory acts were reported and the teachers involved were not punished to the extent they should have been. They lacked in the administration department as a whole. Although they were strong in many categories, certain situations made this school average.
My experience at Junction City High School is definitely one to remember. People in the school including teachers, staff, and students have always been nice and caring towards each other. They all want to have a prolonging future that benefits them. Junction City High School gives students that opportunity to discover what passions and careers students would like to pursue. The school is designed in a career cluster manner that puts students with others that reflect their ideas and beliefs to each other rather than a finance major trying to solve problems with a person interested in musical arts. Other than academics; the diversity in the school is one of the most diverse schools in the nations. Many people of different backgrounds and cultures being clustered together is truly amazing. Everything about the school is to admire and I would recommend others to take the chance to view Junction City High School as one of the best.
I've been attending this school for the last 4 years and am a senior this year and I have really enjoyed this school. The variety of classes and subject are great especially the career based classes that prepare you for specific work fields or college majors. There are a variety of active clubs and afterschool activities that are really fun and hype. And while the student most of the students lack school spirit, the many clubs and fine arts classes are and there are a lot of events and rallies to attend throughout the year. To students and families transferring in, I recommend taking marching band, any of the robotics or coding classes, and the finance/ accounting classes. In about 2 years the school will be transferring to a new building with resources and technology to better suit the students needs.
