Jamesville-Dewitt High School Reviews

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 Some classes were very engaging and interesting, but others were taught in outdated, monotone fashion that didn't keep my peers and I interested.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.

After spending four years at Jamesville-Dewitt, I can safely say that I was very satisfied with my experience here. JD is ranked in the top 250 schools in the country and now I can see why. The faculty is not only resourceful and great at what they do, but they also make great mentors. The school is very diverse and welcoming of all cultures. School spirit is also very strong and the amount of opportunities the students are given are amazing. efore every assembly, Principal Gasparini reminds us that we are the best school in America, and I couldn't agree more.
There are several different types of teachers. There are the teachers who heavily base their classes on textbook work and others that do a mixture of technology/hands on work mixed with textbook work. By the second day of class the student already knows how they'll be graded and what kinds of work they'll be doing, due to the course explanation the teacher provides during the first class. From my personal experience, all of my teachers have stayed after school until 3pm and some even later for students that need extra help. Some teachers even offer to review with students before classes start, at 7-7:45am. If a student is struggling with a class, the teacher confronts the student and asks them if they need any help and attempt to set up some sort of arrangement so that the student can receive help.
