Jamesville-Dewitt Central School District Reviews

My children came to JD from a local private school, MPH, where public schools were continually put down. Former classmates of my children told them how "sorry" they were that my kids had to go to public school and that they'd ruin their education.
How wrong they were! My kids are thriving in JD...teachers there were just as caring as their former teachers and even more so accessible. AND my oldest got into amazing Ivy League colleges and her college guidance counselor was a great help in the process. The diversity in academic, athletic, arts, and club offerings is amazing.

JD has a great environment with lots of direct teacher to student bonding and interaction. The most are willing to help with needs both related and unrelated to their class, and know how to teach their subjects. Athletics are excellent and often go on to have successful seasons. Technology is one thing that JD tends to lack when compared side by side with neighboring schools, however it is by no means very outdated.
The teachers are all mostly very nice. Some political bias obviously exists which can interfere in some classes (Government, Economics, any English course), but the majority of teachers are smart enough to leave the politics outside the classroom door.
