Junction ISD is a wonderful place for children to grow and learn. The teachers at Junction Elementary are exceptional! Mrs. Waites (2nd Grade) is one of the best a school district could ask for. Our Superintendent Dr. Schulze is fantastic, she keeps her faculty and students motivated and shows pride in her work. If you are looking for a small school in a rural area, you couldn't do better than Junction ISD. J.R.
