Sorry Jamestowners. Sometimes when your immersed in it you don't notice it anymore....it takes someone from the outside to point it out to you that you stepped in something. But hey ...keep smiling and patting yourself on the back.

I am truly amazed at the comments from many about Jamestown Schools. I wonder how many actually know anything about the district. Maybe they should just worry about the alarming decreases in their own districts and stop criticizing Jamestown. While I would admit that the demographics in Jamestown have changed dramatically over the past several years, the bottom line is our district still provides great opportunities for our students in all areas, academics, advanced programs, music and athletics. and are working hard to meet the challenges that we face from a growing diverse population.

Ahhh I see the intelligencia is back. Not that the student enrollment increased because JHS has an outstanding advanced program for gaining college credit and an advanced Regent's Diploma. BTW, the HS has had an increase in student enrollment for this program. It MUST be about the poor. It must be, because otherwise it would demonstrate success of the school, wouldn't it therefore government. Tea Baggers the ruin of our nation, they don't believe in government nor government being successful, in their little little minds it just can't happen.

Its the working poor that are moving to Jamestown to make ends meet. I would be curious to know why Panama schools dropped 22 percent.

Jamestown, The promised land. Send em here faraway places. Build places for them to roost and lets sit back and watch them contribute and become integral parts of the local community. DREAMS DO COME TRUE. In Jamestown, all things are possible (says the faraway places who brush their hands off)

It didn't surprise me G. Scott Thomas. Jamestown has become South Dunkirk. There is more opportunity for parents to deal drugs here.
