  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a student

    When I first started at Jane Addams, I was a little nervous. The students were very welcoming and helped me get through my schedule and showed me where all my classes were. At JAHS I was able to focus and put my academics first! I owe my success not only to myself but also to the teachers who have helped me. Ms. Hernandez has pushed me to get my work done and take responsibility for my work. When I leave I will always remember the JAHS mission statement, which is Self- Sufficiency, Critical thinking, and Personal Responsibility. Now I always think before I act, and am more responsible and independent. I like that JAHS prepares you for real life situations and makes sure you are ready for the next step.

    I was successful at JAHS because Ms. C, the principal, showed tough love and made sure I kept my promise to come to school everyday and held me accountable for finishing my work. Ms. Hernandez helped me stay positive about my workload and made me comfortable and certain about maintaining good grades and having everything in order to graduate. Ms. Grzeca and Ms. Suggs made sure that I was comfortable with the school, filling me with good energy every time I walked in the building. At Jane Addams everything you do is controlled by your time management and that if you take something seriously enough you can get a lot done as long as you stay focused and work hard. A little tough love and support can make a difference in a student s life and schooling, it did for me. What I really enjoy about Jane Addams is that they are straightforward and no-nonsense. The work ethic of the staff and their willingness to assist the students to reach their potential is extraordinary. Jane Addams is a very well structured school that gives well deserved love and discipline to all students equally. Even though it s a small school they still make it a little fun, but they make sure we are not just here to make friends and socialize, we are here to learn. The staff at Jane Addams High School are a family to us all, a family that will be there for the rest of our life whenever we need them.

    I loved how JAHS was so caring. Our school is small but it's like a family. JAHS staff just wants the best for us, that s why they push us so hard especially to do the right thing. I appreciate every single staff member for not giving up on me and reminding me every day that I'm worth more, I can do more , it means something to me because they thought more of me than I thought of myself.

After all peer cities like New York have had Vision Zero plans for years, so we've got some catching up to do.

    Jane Addams HS ended up making me a better person. The way that Jane Addams functions, the staff, the rules, and the principal helped me mature into the man I am today. It has impacted me like no other place before. I was able to succeed at Jane Addams High School because it is strict. You have to be on track with your grades and your attendance and that really helps the students become more responsible. My old school did not help me improve in the way that Jane Addams did. I like the positive change that Jane Addams makes a student go through.

    At Jane Addams High School, I am able to push my brain to the limits. I have been able to raise my GPA, test scores, and increase my reading/math scores. They put me in classes that cater to my educational needs. Raising my skills has ensured that I have the potential to go to college and to reach my goal as a graphic designer. To be honest, I thought I would be dead before the age of 15, but instead I ll be the first in my family to graduate thanks to JAHS. I am now a positive example to other family members what they can achieve in life if they stay dedicated and focused. Jane Addams High School has opened up many bright paths that I can take to become successful in my future.

    When I first walked through the doors of Jane Addams it was amazing. JAHS teaches students how to be disciplined. They understand that everyone makes mistakes, but they expect you to learn from them. My memories from my past schools were not as positive as Jane Addams. It took me three years to figure out how much support I received at JAHS. It was eye opening for me to see how serious they are. I've learned that being respectful, paying attention, communicating, being prepared, being positive, and being on task will make me successful. Being successful at Jane Addams is a big difference from my prior school. This school really gives you a real education.

    Jane Addams has taught me so much. At Jane Addams I have learned how to be self- sufficient and how to actually be a woman. I get up at 5:30am every day and pass up a lot of other high schools just to get to Jane Addams. They are my family and always will be. I have learned so much from my teachers and peers and I do my part to contribute back to the school. I have never seen a school that is so about what they say they are. This school has motivated me and prepared me for the real world and that is something you can't get at any other school. JAHS will forever be in my heart.

    Jane Addams has personally helped me feel comfortable with my education. Never in my high school years have I been this happy to be in school and taking pride in my school. I look forward to coming to school every day at JAHS. I think personally JAHS has made me be a better person school wise, because I m more focused on getting things done. They taught me to put the time and effort into my work. Now I actually do my homework rather than not doing it at all like I used to do at my other high schools. Everything I learned at JAHS can easily be applied to my future and the outside world. Things at JAHS are straightforward. We strive to do our best and get things done. It s a small school with a small number of students so the learning is more approachable, and there aren t a lot of distractions. I m proud to be at JAHS.

    Before coming to Jane Addams High School, I had attended three other schools and a boot camp. I was never noticed at those places. I had given up on high school and doing anything with my life. Everything changed when I started at Jane Addams. This school has helped me so much. They encouraged me to start realizing that I can have a better future, not only for me; but for my daughter, my family. I now have amazing grades and good attendance. At JAHS I have a 90% attendance. I never thought school would be fun instead of just a bother. I ve learned I can write well organized papers with perfect formats. Math wasn t a subject of interest to me until I came to JAHS but now I actually like math. I know I can apply math to my everyday life in one way or another. My improved reading and math skills have helped me improve my learning and understanding. At JAHS you are noticed. JAHS was an eye opener for me; this school made me realize I could be anyone. Since I came to JAHS, I now want a career as a Firefighter. JAHS honestly gave me a second chance at being able to be back on my feet and start again.

    I left UIC because the staff did not pay enough attention to their students. They basically cared more about money than my potential to learn. I think Jane Addams does the complete opposite of that. Now that I m at Jane Addams, I can finally learn. The staff at Jane Addams is concerned about my success both during and after high school. All of the tools for learning are in Jane Addams. Another reason that I like this school is because the teachers and staff are always helping you to the fullest extent. I enjoy attending Jane Addams.

    I went from one school to another in hopes of doing better than the last, but every one of them never really made me feel comfortable and at home. I wandered through halls like a ghost; not learning and not making friends. It wasn t until my father remembered my oldest sister had attended Jane Addams and it helped her balance out her life and get her on the right track. This was the first step to getting into Jane Addams High School and getting my life and future back on track. I m glad I ended up at Jane Addams. I ve met so many amazing people and friends along the way, and they show me that high school isn t just a waste of time that you re forced to go through. Jane Addams helped me get back on track, and I don t think I could ever repay any of the staff and teachers for the opportunity they have given me. They inspire me each and every day to become more than what is expected, and that key component is something most schools don t have and will never have.

    Right from the start I knew Jane Addams was the school for me. At my old school, I never really felt welcomed but at Jane Addams, I feel nothing but warmth and welcoming. One thing that I absolutely love about Jane Addams is how the work given is a combination of fun and challenging. I m always learning something. Jane Addams has provided me with the skills needed to become successful both inside and outside of school. Attending Jane Addams has been very pleasant and time well spent. I can also say that because of Jane Addams HS, I have the necessary tools and education to go to college. Switching to Jane Addams has ultimately been one of the best decisions I ve made thus far in my life. I d definitely recommend this high school to anyone.

    My life before coming to Jane Addams High School was a little confusing with bunch of problems happening left and right. But now I am at JAHS and learning different strategies on how to stay on track and be on top of my game which made me build confidence. What I like about Jane Addams High School is the teachers/staff. They are hard on us students because they want us to take advantage of the opportunities given to us. This school gives you the hope back when you thought you couldn't do anything about your education. This is the school you come to when you're lost and need help to get back on track because you want it for yourself.
