Our 4 kids transferred here this year from another school in Redding. Junction has been a great move for us. We loved our other school, but the welcome we get from the administration here is unlike any other. The kids are enjoying their classes, teachers, and classmates and are excited to go to school each day. You really can''t beat that!
