Geary County Schools USD 475 spends approximately $500,000.00 each year to maintain the current Junction City High School. The current building has provided a place for learning in Geary County for nearly 60 years. Not only has the school provided a place for learning, but it has also become a training center for the community’s future nurses, police officers, firefighters, auto technicians, chefs, educators, welders, and more. Over half a century after its construction, providing the best education possible to Junction City area young adults now comes with facility challenges. Many of these challenges are a result of changing needs and a building which the community’s children have outgrown.
The major challenges that surround the current Junction City High School are structural and are not a result of students and staff neglecting the building.
