Overall, Jamesville Dewitt high school is a great school. The classes are challenging (if you want them to be) and the teachers are great, especially in the science department. The counselors are extremely helpful in tracking your progress and keeping you on the right track. The school culture is positive and competitive, yet there is a lack of diversity. Overall, I feel very prepared for college.
I have had a great four years attending Jamesville-DeWitt High School. The majority of my teachers have been truly committed to the success of their students, as well as all of the staff. The student body is very diverse and a great size: big enough to have a new mix of people around you at different times, but small enough that there is a community among the students and we all know each other. If I were to change something, I would play with the idea of different learning styles in the classroom. Some classes were very engaging and interesting, but others were taught in outdated, monotone fashion that didn't keep my peers and I interested. Many immensely successful businesses and companies today work in environments designed to stimulate the mind through creativity. I believe designing a classroom similar to this environment would be very beneficial for many students not only in my high school, but around the world.
