“I am honored to call myself a Red Raider,” said Ms. Dyatel. “JHS has been a proud home to an award-winning marching band, a world championship winning Winter Guard team and to many sectional and state championships in athletics. The AP curriculum welcomes students looking to truly challenge themselves, and prepare them for college level academia. However, it is the unsung heroes – the talented faculty and staff at JHS whose wit and remarkable patience made learning, even the driest material, most enjoyable and memorable. With a student body dedicated to serve and giving back to the community, it is safe to say that JHS is one of the top high schools in Western New York.”
