  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a student

    Before Jane Addams I went to a military school. I wasn t the best student. I am now at the school that I know I was meant to be at. Jane Addams High School. I entered Jane Addams with my head held high a big heart. I was focused and my goal was to finish high school on a positive note. I literally became a new student. Not physically but mentally. My grades became A s and B s and I attended school every day and on time. The teachers were very friendly and helpful. They took things slow so I could catch up with everyone else in the class. I was able to achieve that because of the help I got from teachers and the school. Jane Addams has taught me how to be responsible and be patient with things that are needed. My teachers helped me with math skills that I actually use in my everyday life.

  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a student

    JAHS taught me to never give up on something when you re so close to it and not to let people drag you down. I m finally going to get my high school diploma. From Jane Addams High School. I never thought this would happen. I can be proud of myself and say I went to hell and back and I still managed to graduate high school. At my prior schools my mind-set was so messed up I just didn t care and neither did the teachers. But at JAHS they didn t let me give up on me when I was going to give up on myself. They are going above and beyond to help me.
