Personally, my experience with the school is great. I've always felt welcome to the community and I always knew that it was the same for many others as well. All of the staff were willing to help, and the teachers were excellent in teaching their classes. Although I haven't joined any sports or many clubs, I can still say with confidence that those communities are very good at keeping the school engaged with the community outside. The school also provides a lot of opportunities, having many AP courses as well as machinery used by art classes. Each class as mentioned before will have teachers always ready to support the student if the student has any questions. The school events are always something to look forward to throughout the year. There's always a fun activity to watch and sometimes being able to participate yourself. As a senior, I am proud to be a part of the Jamesville Dewitt High School community, being present with it throughout my entire high school years.
I was truly miserable at this school. Very ignorant, grade and sports oriented, and problematic. A lot of performative activism and complacency. There are a lot of problems with racism, harassment, trauma, and mental illness not being taken seriously or done anything about. The administration is frustrating and pretends to care more about its students than it does. The emphasis is on going to a "good" (prestigious) college at whatever cost necessary, even if it means sacrificing your mental health and social life. One of those schools where everyone dresses the same and sees grade achievements as all there is. The music department is the most glaringly toxic and competitive popularity contest out of any program in the school, which is ironic considering a musical is supposed to be an artistic way for students to express themselves. It is filled with judgement and ostracizing "other" students. The same kids get the lead roles every year because they are the chorus teacher's favorites.
I had a very good experience and Jamesville-DeWitt High School. There are so many amazing opportunities available such as the different clubs, activities, and extracurriculars, as well as electives and AP courses, that make it so that everyone has a place that they feel a part of. The sense of community there is outstanding and most of the staff are great. There are some teachers there, however, that I feel are only still teaching there due to being tenured which I feel is wrong, but the majority are outstanding. I have very close relationships with many of my teachers and they are always willing to meet with you and get you extra help whenever you may need it. The school is very diverse as well, and you'll find yourself among people of all different backgrounds, even many foreign students move to this district every year.
