For any teenager looking for an amazing place to finish growing up and begin their college years and their adulthood, look no further than Jamestown High School! With an amazing culture that will last for decades, and with inclusive music programs dating back over a century, JHS will have anything a prospective student. Even though it is well within a poverty stricken area of Western New York, it is a diamond-in-the-rough, and is a shining jewel on the crown of what is possible when members of this generation, aided by amazing teachers, willing parents, and a community like no other, work hard to overcome their surroundings.

I was a bit of a loser in middle school. I was the smart kid that was in choir, but I wasn't popular or really well loved, I wasn't seizing my full potential. I was depressed and heavily bullied, I even suffered from anorexia for a year. Jamestown turned that around completely. Opportunities surrounded me, I had a fantastic choir and theatre department that welcomed me with open arms, elite math and science clubs that propelled me to new academic heights, excellent dual enrollment programs and AP courses that genuinely challenged me. I'll never forget the day that I first walked into that school, touring it with my dad. He looked around the main hallway that we entered, covered in posters of our school's achievements, with genuinely happy people welcoming us. He took it all in, then said, "Is this the freaking set of Highschool Musical?" That sentence sums up my experience of Jamestown; so wonderful that it seems more like a dream than reality.
I loved many of the teachers I had over the years, as they were always fun, constantly switching up lessons, and genuinely easy to talk to. However, I would love to see change in the anti-bullying policies, as that is one of JHS’ biggest faults. The handling of bullying situations could be immensely better with more time and care into each and every situation that arises.
