La Junta Junior/Senior High School Reviews
As a senior at La Junta High School, I am glad to have gone here throughout the duration of my high school career. The arts departments are amazing, and counselors make it easy to look toward college and other future choices. The athletics are exciting to watch, and there are many extracurricular activities for every student to be a part of, from an LGBT+ group to robotics and drama. The academics are fair, and some teachers genuinely do care, but, like any school, there are those who play favorites. Overall, the education is pretty average, but the extracurriculars are fun and sometimes competitive. The school feels very safe, as there are usually officers of the LJPD around, and one is always constant with his own desk in the main office.
I have gone to La Junta High School all four years of high school. Going to this school has had its highs and lows. I was disappointed that there wasn't that big of change when moving up to high school. It's the same teachers that treat you the same way. Of course there are the select few that you look forward to seeing, that make learning fun. But sadly, there are not many teachers like that here. The variety of classes offered isn't the largest but it's a lot better than other schools around ours. On a positive note, La Junta high school has exceptional facilities. Bathrooms are kept near and are newly remodeled. The lockers are in gray condition. The gym and football field are envied by teams from all over. Our school is very safe and friendly, as we have an officer on site at all times. All school events are also closely monitored buy authorities. My high school years are coming to an end quickly, but I'm glad I spent them at the high school that I did.
I've been going to LJHS for many years now. I can honestly say it is just an average school. We do have good education, as well as good teachers that give us it. There is not a lot of clubs though. The services provided here are pretty good too. The counseling office has amazing people that work up there, and so does the caffeteria. Although it may not be the best school, it does have it's peaks.
