Welcome to Jamestown High School

Talk with any JHS alumni and you’ll quickly discover that Red Raider pride runs deep. Our school community is equally proud of the long-standing traditions that have defined our past and the current school experiences that will forge our future. As the largest high school in Chautauqua County, JHS provides a wealth of course offerings and enriching experiences across a wide-range of academic and extracurricular pursuits. As a comprehensive high school, located within the city limits, JHS is fortunate to have established a long list of community partners that help make our school what it is today.
