ABOUT

Welcome to Jamesville – Dewitt High School. Our faculty and staff are committed to bridging the generations and the future by engaging young minds and hearts.

Our course offerings provide students the opportunity to learn at a high level in the arts, sciences, and letters. We are excited about the growth in the number of Advanced Placement (AP) courses, technology courses, and electives in social studies and science. We are committed to providing high-level support services in Academic Intervention (AIS) and special education.

We are also committed to providing our students with a well-rounded academic and social experience. To this end, we have over 30 clubs and activities that provide students an opportunity to explore their interests. We have an award-winning drama and music program. Our music program’s select bands and select chorus have performed throughout Central New York. Our drama program has staged such classics as Les Miserables, Fiddler on the Roof, and West Side Story. We believe that school spirit is built through student engagement. Our extra-curricular programs do just that!

Our athletic programs have enjoyed unparalleled success. Our teams have won the Onondaga High School League (OHSL) All-Sports trophy for best overall, combined team records for the past seven years! We’ve had New York State (NYS) champions in swimming and three of our teams made the NYS final four in their respective sports. Most impressive, 23 of our 26 teams won Scholar Athlete Team awards. Athletics support our academic programming at J-DHS.

The JDHS faculty and administration are extremely proud of our school, community, and our students. We welcome you to our home! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 315-445-8340.

2021 J-D High School Commencement

Announcements
Back-to-school message from Principal Paul Gasparini
We are eagerly anticipating the 2021-22 school year. We expect to continue some of the protocols we instituted last year. All J-D High School families will receive communication the week before classes start concerning our daily protocols and expectations. The following is a general note on procedures:

* The first day of school is Thursday, Sept. 9. Homeroom will begin at 7:45 a.m. 
* The Counseling Center is mailing student schedules; call your counselor if you have questions regarding your schedule.
* Students will receive a Student Handbook and a planner the first day of school. Students should review their Student Handbook with a parent or guardian.
 
I look forward to meeting you. Enjoy the rest of the summer. I trust that all of you will come back to school refreshed, energized and ready for another year of school. We are J-D!
