  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a student

    Jane Addams High School allowed me to work way smoother in school and provided me with an engaging and comfortable environment to ask questions if I needed. Jane Addams prepared for my future after graduation. Many of the assignments helped after graduation.

    What I like about JAHS is that the teachers create a great support system. If anyone I know ever needs another chance at school, I will tell them to give JAHS a chance.

    The way I ve become successful at JAHS is by changing my whole perspective of what I need to do. I make sure I do all my work, try not get into much trouble, and turn in my work on time. What I ve learned at JAHS is respect, safety, and engagement. I ve also learned how to get things done without any distractions and I m working on not letting people provoke me so easily. If my grades start to slip and I start to fall behind in my classes, they are on me. JAHS is just a small, quiet school with great teachers, staff members, and students.

    As I walked in the building and met the staff- I felt a different approach. I felt comfortable. I believe what has allowed me to become successful is the confidence and the discipline that Jane Addams has given me. The teachers have shown me how to be more optimistic and turn negatives into positives. Being a student of Jane Addams has allowed to me to learn how to be self-sufficient. I have learned not to rely on anyone. Using critical thinking skills that I have developed, I have managed to keep my grades up which I am very proud of. Jane Addams has taught me to take responsibility for my own actions. I have developed a wiser type of character because of this. I speak up for myself and when something I do causes a bad outcome, I take full responsibility for it. Jane Addams has been an amazing journey so far. At Jane Addams, I see patience and tolerance in every way. This is what I have liked the most at this school. Jane Addams has been everything that I needed to go on to the next chapter of my life. Jane Addams has prepared me to be mentally and emotionally ready for the rocky roads on my way to success.

  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a student

    Thanks to the administrators at Jane Addams, they have helped me get an Internship at a retail store to gain experience on a job since I have never worked part of a team management before. I like the honesty from Jane Addams staff that will alarm you to real life obstacles and will help you prepare for them on how to overcome whatever s getting in your way. Before Jane Addams, I rarely went to school, missed countless of unexcused days, skipped lunch and hanged out at the library. I ve always had in mind of what a huge failure I considered myself to be, and at some point, like many times; I thought that it would be my destiny. Thanks to the Jane Addams staff that showed me the positive side of the options I had which I didn t know existed, I now want to accomplish a whole lot more.

Loud Motorbike Racing Over East Pilsen

Motorcycles, some easily reaching speeds over 100mph, race on Dan Ryan Expy with impunity. Nightly, between midnight and 4am, motorcycles speed South of Roosevelt to God-knows-where. I never hear a siren give chase. What gives? Where's the State Police? You could easily make a few thousand in fines for empty state coffers.
Loudest is Ryan over Canalport @2am. Your help will be appreciated.

    This is a REAL school. Having 3 of my 5 children go to many schools in Chicago, Jane Addams was the last and best school out of them all. They are just normal like school is supposed to be. They don't do a lot of nonsense like all the schools are doing now. They really teach and that is why I send my kids to school... to be taught. Jane Addams gets a A+

    JAHS has been the best fit for me. The staff is very honest, friendly, and helpful. Not just any regular stay after class to complete your assignment helpful they go beyond that. Staff members at Jane Addams reach out to you almost as if you're one of their own. With the help of Jane Addams I ve learned a lot. I learned to practice my self-sufficiency skills. I'm able to make important decisions as well as provide for myself based on my needs and not my wants. I take responsibility for my actions, which is something I ve learned at Jane Addams as well... Also, I ve learned to think critically in order to continue to be successful.
