My time at Juneau-Douglas High School was very good! I will say, it is what you make of it. I put in a lot of work and got into great colleges, but I feel that I lacked guidance at times. Students who are not self-motivated may not thrive here. The sports and clubs are inclusive and fun, and the whole town is very supportive. I do wish we were better prepared for AP tests and had more resources available for those applying to colleges. Overall, I had a great time here, and the teachers are amazing and truly want to see you succeed!
I love this school. I love the teachers, the school spirit, the energy; it's all very inviting. The teachers are very understanding and inspiring. The basketball, football, baseball, soccer, cross country, and swimming games/matches are very exciting in terms of school spirit and the actual game. The only thing I dislike about the school is the organization. There are a lot of activities to do but they aren't advertised very much and are slightly chaotic, but are fun anyway.
JDHS is pretty a pretty average school. Most of the students aren’t that nice, same with a lot of the teachers. I mean, some people there are great, it’s just hard to find the right group. As for teachers, some are sexist and and don’t care, while others do their job well and are great. The sports are okay, they get pretty competitive. I am currently a sophomore and I just want to be done with this school. Another thing is that drug use is a very common occurrence at JD, more than most schools, which is bad. This isn’t important, but the school often smells terrible. I think there are better academics and sports than TMHS, but still, it’s not great. Also, people are very political and opinionated. In conclusion, not great but not terrible.
