Jamestown High School is a great school, dedicated to involving each student and staff member. With a variety of classes, including Advanced Placement and Dual Credit courses, every class is designed to challenge students skills and enhance their knowledge. There are various sports and clubs, including Science Olympiad, National Honor Society, and Key Club. The Band, Choir, and Orchestra are very well-known and amazing too! Our Principle, Mr. Gehlar, is amazing and has brought new ideas and classes to our chool, including a MakerSpace. This school is one of a kind and you can tell the teachers want to see the students succeed.

I like the facilities at JHS, they are functional and always clean, but not so nice that I am afraid of using them. The weight/fitness wing and the music wing are my two favorite specialized areas.
I think Jamestown focuses too much on certain sports over other activities. There are some programs where students work considerably harder and/or are significantly better at their program than others, but they do not receive the same recognition and funding as other programs.
I would like to see some things change at JHS. Negativity is popular among students, and school-sponsored attempts to encourage positive-mindedness are ignored. If enough upperclassmen and student leaders modeled positive behavior, I think JHS would have the type of environment that the students and faculty are trying to create.
My experience at JHS was a decidedly good one.
Jamestown High School is a good school. They are working hard at adding activities that appeal to the younger generation such as esports, dungens & dragons, etc. The teachers are very helpful when you don't understand something. There is not a lot of diversity there since it's a smaller town. They offer many different sports and activities so there is something for everyone. The facilities are nice on the inside. The school is less than 10 years old. Unfortunately the outside of the school kind of looks like a prison. I am the 3rd generation from my family to have graduated from JHS.
