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.

Hated it here! If you're not the same you get outcasted! Terrible cliches and the popular run the school! Was never happy here.
Besides that the classes were okay, academics were okay, and they seemed to have a good disability program.
The highschool is all about education and making sure every student has an opportunity to learn. I love how the teachers put dedication into teaching and how much time and effort they put into it. My teachers have inspired me to continue to learn and grow as I move on in life. My teachers from the Jamestown highschool have been my role-models and will continue to be my role models as I move on in life. I think one thing that could change is some school spirit. Our school would thrive much more if we were involved in more (sports or academically.) As I enter my sophomore year I hope to see some of that change. The school itself doesn’t need much to change because all it takes is one person at a time to make a huge difference.
