  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a student

    What I like about Jane Addams is the staff shows a lot of respect and support towards the students. Since the first day I came for a tour around the school, Ms. Gonzalez and Ms. Comparini were very kind and nice. I feel like they have prepared me for my future life after high school which is college. JAHS has given me a lot of potential in myself to succeed in life and not give up. They are supportive and encourage and support me with any situation, this actually brings me hope and makes me want to try with my education.

  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a student

    One of the most important things Jane Addams has taught me is how to be punctual. With that I mean I ve been taught how to be on time and ready to start my day. This also means turning in my assignments on time and doing them correctly. I ve also learned self control and how to stay positive in negative situations. I ve become more responsible for my actions and know how to take care of my life and my tasks myself. I have become self-sufficient at school, in social situations, at work and at home. These new life skills I have processed will help me succeed in life. I am going to use these skills to keep myself out of trouble and out of harm's way. If you don t like people constantly pushing you to be successful, this is not the school for you.

    I ve been more successful at Jane Addams than any other high school I've attended because of the atmosphere. It s a place you can be comfortable and not worry about anything negative happening. The students respect each other and all the teachers help you a lot. It's a great place full of awesome people who want nothing but to see their students succeed and to make sure that when they graduate, they are ready for the real world. I feel that a lot more students that are having trouble in school should look up Jane Addams. The school might look small on the outside but it feels bigger on the inside, because this is where students succeed.

    Jane Addams has been very hard with the rules, but it has shown me an optimistic path in my future. At Jane Addams, I ve learned a lot about consequences for not following a prioritized schedule correctly. Jane Addams teaches me how to stick with what I am expected to do as a citizen and member of society. There are many rules in Jane Addams that I don t necessarily agree with, but I know that they are there to help me progress in life. I thank the teachers for being respectful, helpful, diligent, and friendly. The way the teachers view me has changed my family's perception of me, and I ve made them hopeful that my future will be bright. That being said, I want to say thank you for every way the staff has helped me become a better person at Jane Addams.

    At JAHS I don t have to worry about bullies, mean people, or anyone that wants to stop me from succeeding, because the staff members at Jane Addams are great. This school gives the type of environment every student needs to be successful. Going to Jane Addams High has been an inspirational experience for me. I learned how to be self-sufficient because, if I truly want to get things done I need to do them myself. No one is going to do it for me. Jane Addams is a great school, I truly like it, and I love the staff in this building. I would recommend this school to any student who is having a hard time attending a different school. Whatever they re struggling with or going through, Jane Addams will help them to graduate successfully and prepare them for what will come next.

    Memories I have going to school at Jane Addams are unforgettable. Jane Addams was always a fun school to me but there was always work that needed to be done. All you have to do is stay focused. Being at Jane Addams opened my eyes to see that I always wanted give up when things were getting too hard, but they made me push through it. I can really say that Jane Addams is my second family, my home away from home. If I can start my whole Jane Addams experience over I would. This is my family, my home and I m proud to be a part of a great school like Jane Addams. Thanks to the dean and teachers and my wonderful principle I am going to the college of my choosing.

    My life before Jane Addams High School was in pieces. I can honestly say that coming to Jane Addams has given me the confidence that I needed. I felt welcomed from the moment I walked in the door. I knew that this was a place that I would be able to succeed. I would not say that I was not successful at my old school, I was just not comfortable being there anymore. At Jane Addams I not only feel safe, but I have also seen that I have succeeded more on my own. I now realize that I cannot rely on others and have to take care of my own business. The school is small and there is not a lot of drama. I have had the honor to work with Ms. Hernandez and Ms. Becker, who have gone above and beyond to make sure that I am okay, and that my FAFSA and College Applications are done. While being at Jane Addams I have learned that self-sufficiency is something that everybody needs, that being responsible for your own things will benefit you. Every day at JAHS is a different day; there is always something to look forward to when coming to school. I like that Jane Addams has a staff that knows how to be serious and fun at the same time. Jane Addams is my dream school and for the first time in my life I look forward to going to school every day. Jane Addams is a place that actually does what they say.

    One of the most important things Jane Addams has taught me is how to be punctual. With that I mean I ve been taught how to be on time and ready to start my day. This also means turning in my assignments on time and doing them correctly. I ve also learned self control and how to stay positive in negative situations. I ve become more responsible for my actions and know how to take care of my life and my tasks myself. I have become self-sufficient at school, in social situations, at work and at home. These new life skills I have processed will help me succeed in life. I am going to use these skills to keep myself out of trouble and out of harm's way. If you don t like people constantly pushing you to be successful, this is not the school for you.

    Life at Jane Addams has been great. When I got to Jane Addams I struggled with a lot of stuff. They helped me with everything and I really thank them for what the school staff did for me. Ms. Comparini is kind of like a mom figure who cares about you but don t take no nonsense from you either. The school staff was there when I needed help the most, and supported me when family didn t. The office staff like Ms. Suggs, Ms. Hernandez, Mr Richardson and Ms. Becker were all glad to see me finish and take the path I want to take. It made me smile because I know they are willing to help me no matter what. I really want to thank all the staff for what they did and have done for me because I do not know what I would do without their help.

    What I have learned from Jane Addams is that they do not joke around when it comes to school. I learned how to be a critical thinker by not just thinking about one thing but actually going out of the box and over thinking it. I learned to be responsible so if I had bad grades then it would not be on my teachers it would be on me to get those grades back up. I also learned that I have to be self-sufficient and not depend on someone and not always count on people to be there for me.

    I have my 3rd child at JAHS and all have been successful. The staff are very friendly and if there is an issue they let you know right away. I love this school - very happy with it compared to CPS.

    I LIKE THE FACT THAT JAHS IS STRICT AND THE FACT THAT THE STAFF IS ALWAYS IN COMMUNICATION WITH ME IN REGARDS TO MY CHILD. THE ENVIRONMENT IS VERY FRIENDLY AND I CAN CALL WHEN I HAVE QUESTION ABOUT ANYTHING AND STAFF ALWAYS ANSWERS THE PHONE INSTEAD OF A MACHINE.
