Welcome to Juniata Gap Elementary,
the Home of the Rockets!
Mr. Richard Adams, Principal
Located in Altoona, Pennsylvania, Juniata Gap Elementary opened its doors in 1997. Juniata Gap is home to approximately 630 students in grades Kindergarten through sixth.
At Juniata Gap, we are dedicated to providing our students with a safe, nurturing, and fun environment where students are excited about coming to school each day. We recognize that each child’s academic, social, and emotional needs are quite different. Therefore, programs are implemented at Juniata Gap to differentiate instruction, while providing appropriate interventions and accommodations to assist every child in being successful. The focus is always our students and decisions are based on keeping the best interest of the student in mind.
The Juniata Gap staff is amazing! They are extremely dedicated and qualified. All of our students are treated with respect by their teachers and are encouraged to work to their full potential. We believe that communication between school and home is important and advantageous to a child’s success in school.
We have a very active and supportive PTO at Juniata Gap. The PTO supports many academic, character education, and athletic programs in our school. The parents of our students are always welcome and encouraged to volunteer in his/her child’s classroom. This participation is greatly appreciated and has a positive impact on our students.
With our exemplary staff, eager and ready to learn students, and supportive parents – We know that we will achieve success! We are planning for a year of excellence!
