Juniata Senior High School Reviews
Juniata can be a great place if you make it to be. There are teachers that are willing to help you along the way, and others who mainly let you fend for yourself. Gradually, more classes and sports have been added, but it’s simply not enough when you compare us to EJ or Mifflin County, or any other area school. Our clubs do what they can, but simply don’t receive nearly enough help in funding that they need. Our athletics are very competitive and our athletes always go and do their best for JHS. I wish our school had more dual-enrollment courses so you could get ahead in college readiness. Also, make more classes available to underclassmen versus being senior-only. This can hold up many people on graduation requirements, whereas they could fulfill them earlier.
Juniata Senior High School struggles due to poor administration and understaffing. Overall, the teachers are very likable people that are as frustrated with the administrators as the students are. Guidance counselors are also very likable but generally unhelpful in college/ career planning. Football is really the main focus of the school and other sports often feel neglected and underrepresented. Fortunately new classes and technology are gradually being added to the school.
I like how small my school is because it seems to make the majority of the students closer to one another. It also aids teachers in helping students one-on-one because the class sizes are smaller. It makes it much simpler for teachers to identify ways to explain things to students in a way that will fit them best. I do wish my school would give more recognition to clubs other than sports. Every day the morning announcements gives a long list of the achievements of every athlete, but achievements in the art and science clubs go overlooked every day. I think many schools across the country are guilty of giving more hype to sports, and I feel that this decreases students' enthusiasm for academics and other activities if they feel no one will care.
