    When I started high school I hated going to Rauner College Prep (RCP). The following year I started at George Washington High School (GW). My grades were slipping and I wasn t doing anything with my life. Half way through the school year my parents transferred me again. I didn't want to go to another school. The second I saw Jane Addams High School I told myself nope I didn't know anyone, it was small, and it was way too far from my friends. As I walked in I said to myself, How the hell am I supposed to be able to ditch? Where is everyone? Walking in the front office they told me I couldn't do such and such things. I instantly turned to my father and said let's go, thankfully we stayed and now I m getting A s and B s. I have a better attitude towards life. I'm going to be more than just a number I am a Jane Addams High School graduate!

    Before I arrived at Jane Addams I had been to three other charter schools and tried Lincoln s Challenge. None of them worked out for me. Finally I registered at Jane Addams which was the greatest decision I have ever made in my life. While being at JAHS I learned to channel my anger in a much calmer manner. I also learned that everything doesn t deserve a reaction. It may sound kind of childish but I learned to use my indoor voice because I have major anxiety problems and the smallest things used to take me from zero to hundred. Jane Addams taught me how to deal with my real world interactions and when coping with my own problems. The things I liked the most about Jane Addams is that they push you to your hardest potential. Even if you don t see it in yourself they see it in you and they help you get to where you are trying to go in life. I can honestly say my Jane Addams family genuinely cares. They aren t like any other school.

    The things I love most about Jane Addams High School are the new interactions with different races, new ideas being brought up every day by staff instead of by the book or lesson plan. The teachers spice it up with world connections, emotions, outcomes, and inputs, all fused into this single lesson plan. This keeps me engaged and I want to pay attention to find out where they get that connection and how I can do the same in the future.

Talking with Jeanne Darst about comedy, gun sense and truth

Fun Lovers Unite! An Evening of Music, Comedy and Gun Sense is Wednesday, May 11, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. at The Highline Ballroom, 431 W. 16th St., New York City. Tickets here.

    Talking with Jeanne Darst about comedy, gun sense and truth
    One time a man knocked pamphlets out of my mom's hands and called her a Communist. In the late '60s, "communist" was a pretty bad thing to call a person. Why the epithet? My mom was campaigning on Washington, D.C.'s National Mall for gun reform. It's one of my earliest memories.

  • Why isn't the state and federal governments going after the straw purchasers who give/sell their guns to gang members? If you want the truth about gun sense it is pretty simple: get truth in prosecution and sentencing of those that violate existing gun laws! Stop persecuting law abiding citizens and businesses.

  • I got a Thumbs Down from Erin.... I guess I hurt her feelings. Might be a liberal since it is liberals who get angry when you aren't a lemming following the liberal mantra and preaching how offended everyone and everything makes them. Guess that old pesky Constitution will just have to be overridden with Executive Orders.

    I have been through many obstacles at Jane Addams. Every staff member here has showed me support, but the ones who have shown me the most support are Ms. Gonzales, Ms Suggs, Ms. McDonald, Mr. Richardson, Ms. Gardner and last but definitely not least Mr. Avila. These people I feel deserve a raise. With people like this you are bound to succeed. Jane Addams is a school you would have to prepare for. If you don t like rules, this is not the school for you. If you don t like people being on your back, this is not the school for you. The one thing I love the most is the support and help you can get here. There s so much help and support here I just love it.

    I have learned from JAHS that school is not where you go to play and have fun. You come here to learn. School is important and is a gateway to success. I've learned that if you have a goal you have to work for it. Jane Addams has taught me that as long as you do what you have to do in school, you shouldn't have any problems. I've learned that the environment that you learn in plays a big part in your success. I like being at JAHS, they care about your success.

    My life before Jane Addams High School was so sweet. In Lincoln Park High School I was doing anything and everything I wanted to. I was messing up so much by not turning in my work and getting into it with teachers and getting kicked out of class. I was a part of their basketball team too. I played all my years at Lincoln Park except my last year. I did not want to leave but I knew it was the right thing to do if I wanted to get back on track and graduate. What I learned at Jane Addams is how to be responsible and take care of my business with school, at home, graduating, and going off to college. Jane Addams showed me how to take care of what is important first, and then play later. Jane Addams made me learn how to think for myself and do what is best for me. What I like about Jane Addams is the safety of the school and making sure every student is doing their work. Jane Addams gets you focused on what really matters and shows you there is no time for games because at the end you can only count on yourself for your success.

    Jane Addams High School made me a better person in many ways. They have made me a more mature person and have let me see life in a new, positive way. They made me think about going to college and becoming someone I never expected to be. I would like to thank Jane Addams for changing me into the person I am now. I recommend Jane Addams to any student struggling to graduate from high school or someone who has been out of school because I know for sure their lives would change just how I positively changed mine after coming to Jane Addams High School.

    At Jane Addams high school I learned that I have to control myself and how I think about things. I learned that I can't always speak my mind and say the things I want to. Jane Addams also taught me to be respectful. My years as a high school student at Jane Addams have been productive. I have learned a lot about myself and I feel prepared to go out into the world. It is a great school.

    Absolutely love this school. All 3 of my children attended there and I have nothing but praise for the staff. They are dedicated and hard workers and have worked their magic on my kids that CPS could NEVER do and I never thought possible. I would give 10 stars if I could because they have earned it! The head lady of the school is the best. Strong. Fair. No-nonsense yet caring for all students no matter what.
