    I believe Juniata is the best elementary school in the district and I have had experiences in all of the district schools. The teachers and all of the staff are the nicest and the principal is very caring towards the students.

    My son and daughter both attended Juniata it is a school that challenges learners and gives you the basics for your future education. Our son is a Pharm PHD and his sister is a RN. We owe their start in education to the teachers and education they received at Juniata School in DuBois PA.
