  • 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.

  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a student

    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.

  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a student

    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.

    At Long Last, the City Releases the Chicago Vision Zero Action Plan
    Back in September 2016, when the city of Chicago announced it would finally be releasing a formal, data-driven, interdepartmental Vision Zero plan to eliminate traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2026, Streetblog's headline was " Better Late Than Never." 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 High School reviewed by a student

    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.
