    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.

    At Jane Addams everyone helps me a lot with my grades and to keep myself in track. Jane Addams made me successful because this school is different from others, the way they teach is much better than other schools. Jane Addams helped me succeed in a lot of things including my attitude and my way of problem solving. I learned a lot in Jane Addams. I always struggled in math but I managed to learn a lot of math at JAHS. Jane Addams is on top of things.

    Honestly I get the help and support at Jane Addams that I didn t get at my other school. They push me into becoming someone stronger and each day I feel like I am being challenged. My grades I have now are improved. My family is very proud of me and of how much I ve accomplished. In this school, I have learned about personal responsibilities and how to become self sufficient. They build each student up and give them the confidence to graduate and keep pushing through. Everyone deserves a second chance when it comes to Jane Addams, this school pushes you and gives you hope for a better future.

    Jane Addams is the best high school that I have attended. Jane Addams is more consistent, teachers are always here to support you and see you do your best. They helped me improve as a person. They show you attention and they don t leave any student out. The most important thing I learned from Jane Addams is how to be presentable. They showed me how to have class and carry myself as an intelligent young man. They showed me how to not be a failure in life. When I came to Jane Addams I had no goals or plans for what I wanted to do, but they showed me the sky's the limit, to strive for greatness, and taught me how to survive in the real world. I like how they push you to do better and look at the bigger picture.

    Before Jane Addams the only future I saw for myself was incarceration or death. But JAHS has shown me how to rely on myself through critical thinking, personal responsibility, and self-sufficiency. These three statements have made me a better person. I was successful at Jane Addams because of the foundation that the school provides. If it wasn t for the staff and teachers, I probably would not have made it this far. Another reason for my success was the structure of the school. I personally love how I can say that Jane Addams really changed my life. There is not a day where I don t stop and think critically about certain decisions and also how I carry myself as a responsible adult. Everyone in this facility - whether it s a teacher, principal, dean, or staff - cares about the students and wants nothing but the best for them. Jane Addams High School is simply the best school ever and I can attest to that.

    I have been successful at Jane Addams because the teachers and other staff pushed me to work hard. What I ve learned from attending JAHS is how to be self-sufficient, be a responsible person, and how to be a critical thinker. Learning these three things will help me shape my future and be successful and independent. They are much different from other schools. I like the great learning environment. They prepare you for life after Jane Addams. They are not just trying to get you out of their school they actually care about your future.

    I am successful at JAHS, because it is a challenge every day. Every day at JAHS is a constant reminder of the importance of education. The staff at JAHS teach me something new every day, they make school interesting, and I like that. I personally want to thank all the staff for making me feel that I am capable of attending college, because before Jane Addams I did not want to go to college. The education that I gained at JAHS has made me a better person. The teachers not only educated me in my everyday studies, they taught me life lessons as well and how to make the right decisions in life. I believe JAHS is the right school for any type of student.

    Being at Jane Addams has changed everything for me. The teachers and staff here are so much help. Whenever they see me struggling with something they help me out so I can do it right. Being at Jane Addams has taught me to not give up. If you want something you are going to have to work hard to get it. In my old school no one really cared about you. I was almost to the point of dropping out until I came to Jane Addams. The teachers here really want to see all of us graduate and they are helping me do that.

    My life before I came to Jane Addams was just pure failure. I hardly went to school and when I did I was late. I never did any school work. Someone recommended I go to Jane Addams High School but I heard bad things about it, so I was undecided. It turned out to not be bad at all; the staff is very positive with no judgment. I am now very happy that I transferred to Jane Addams. My knowledge with math was terrible but the classes at Jane Addams helped me understand math a lot better. Jane Addams taught me how to be responsible, to always come to school in the right dress code, be on time, and to always be prepared to work hard. This school has a positive environment - no negativity and no judgment. They have a lot of respect for the students and their decisions. Jane Addams High School was a great experience, and I really appreciate the opportunity Jane Addams gave me.
