  • I saw the shooting, called it in within 30-60 seconds as soon as I knew I was out of the line of fire. One police car showed up, 20 minutes later. Glad the guy was able to get himself to the hospital; I wasn't close enough or around long enough to realize anyone had been hit.

  • So glad you are ok and called it in...

  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a student

    I was more successful at JAHS because of the wonderful teaching staff. They kept me involved in the class activities. I fit in with everyone. I never worried about drama from classmates or by unprofessional staff members like you do at other schools. The JAHS staff are the best that I have ever had in a school. They work with you until the end and won't let you give up. Their main priority is for the students to be focused on their school tasks. I learned much more at Jane Addams in a year than at the 3 years at my previous school!

    Jane Addams has been less stressful than my other high school. There isn t any unnecessary drama. It s pretty relaxed all you got to do is stay out of trouble and focus on getting your work done. Even though this school is small, all of the staff members are really cool people. I respect them, and they respect me.

    I have learned a lot since being at Jane Addams. I have learned that understanding others and communication is important. You cannot get upset and start yelling and being disrespectful just because you think you are right. They will stop you in your tracks. I learned to focus on myself and not create drama. I have learned that working hard in all classes, and staying under the radar can help me graduate faster. There is good balance of work and fun at JAHS.

  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a student

    What I like about Jane Addams is the staff shows a lot of respect and support towards the students. Since the first day I came for a tour around the school, Ms. Gonzalez and Ms. Comparini were very kind and nice. I feel like they have prepared me for my future life after high school which is college. JAHS has given me a lot of potential in myself to succeed in life and not give up. They are supportive and encourage and support me with any situation, this actually brings me hope and makes me want to try with my education.

  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a student

    One of the most important things Jane Addams has taught me is how to be punctual. With that I mean I ve been taught how to be on time and ready to start my day. This also means turning in my assignments on time and doing them correctly. I ve also learned self control and how to stay positive in negative situations. I ve become more responsible for my actions and know how to take care of my life and my tasks myself. I have become self-sufficient at school, in social situations, at work and at home. These new life skills I have processed will help me succeed in life. I am going to use these skills to keep myself out of trouble and out of harm's way. If you don t like people constantly pushing you to be successful, this is not the school for you.
