  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a parent

    All of the teachers always have great things to say about my child, I feel like my child is a totally new student here. All of the staff always pays attention to each student and I like that about JAHS.

    I am happy with JAHS, my daughter is comfortable coming to school everyday and has told me she learns so much. I highly recommend that every parent visits JAHS so you can see the quality of education your child will receive.

    Teachers are excellent with the students and in helping them achieve their goals to graduate. I like that I am always informed of how my child is doing in class.

    I have seen a lot of progress in my daughter since she started at JAHS, the teachers here help my daughter out in every way she needs. Her attendance has improved so much. The security and the way the staff enforces the rules is exceptional. The dress code policy makes all of the students be on the same level. JAHS prepares them for the future and makes them aware of the "real" world. Half days on Fridays are the best, they get to explore and interview for what is after graduating.

    All of the faculty are really welcoming and my son is soon to graduate because of JAHS. The staff really makes a difference in the way my son feels about attending school and continuing onto college.

  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a student

    I spent a year and a half at Rudy Lozano High School but didn't really learn much since the school was mostly filled with gang members and the teachers were not strict at all, so everybody could do anything they wanted in that school. I eventually transferred to Jane Addams High School (JAHS). At JAHS I've learned so much. I've learned how to be more organize, not only in school but my personal life too. I've learned how to be punctual to places I have to be at a certain time. I like everything about JAHS. My classes challenge me. Being at JAHS has been good because it prepared me for a better, more successful future.

Record Row ... NOT Motor Row

As more and more development and investment continues to flood the South Loop area, I can't help but wonder if anyone will discuss Record Row -- the TRUE identity of what everyone seems to want to brand "Motor Row."

"Record Row" is the more relevant history for this area of Chicago. If the powers that be were smart, the strip along Michigan near McCormick's new 'Entertainment District' should really become a cultural corridor for Chicago, celebrating the historical Jazz and Blues contributions that line that entire strip. Nashville has Broadway Street ... New Orleans has Bourbon Street .... why on earth doesn't Chicago have something similar????

There's a great documentary on this strip if anyone is interested.

    Record Row
    Record Row - Was produced by WTTW in Chicago (PBS) and aired in February 1997. I happened to tape it. Lost my tape a few months ago and then discoved that Record Row had disappeared from the earth more or less. Found one copy in a small college's library somewhere in the south but not available for loan.

    I feel once we are past the negative perceptions of the area and truly embrace the great history of Bronzeville we will be rewarded in ways that are innumerable, if and when the resources are put in the promotion of what happened here. As a people we have never excluded even as we were not included. What concerns me is that this should be on the front of the consideration of the tourism bureau's investment portfolio, lets consider this area as an asset and as something to present to the World for celebration.If you can have art festivals, rib festivals and so on in the North side neighborhoods, why not have these festivals in the Southside venues.

  • The History and the greatness of Bronzeville is what we have to preserve, if we let this area become anything other than an Historical area then we have lost a great treasure.

  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a student

    I wasn t sure what to expect from JAHS but first impressions are always long lasting. When I first went on the JAHS website to find out more about the school, the mission statement of the school presented itself clearly, stating: Critical thinking. Personal Responsibility. Self-Sufficiency. Those words started cycling through my mind and I knew JAHS was the school for me. Now that I ve been at Jane Addams for a while, I learned that having a plan is the beginning of achieving a goal. I ve started thinking more about what I want to do post-secondary, and I ve been increasingly independent and self-motivated. Jane Addams provides no nonsense discipline and incentives that schools I ve been to don t have. Jane Addams is allowing me to graduate on time and to see that blessings in disguise are real.

    Jane Addams is one of the best schools I have attended during my high school career. Jane Addams has taught me that it is always important to be on time and it is always important to be able to do things for yourself without depending on anyone to do it for you. Overall I would recommend this school to a friend because it is the best school I have attended. The school overall always pushes us to be better. They push us to get ourselves together and be able to get things done regardless of what gets in our way. Jane Addams is a school that more people should know about because it can really impact your life and really push you to be your best self in and out of school.

    At JAHS the teachers are more involved in your learning. The school wants students to succeed and they focus on building you up to be ready for your success. The school shows discipline, and motivates you to understand that for every action, there is a consequence. One thing I especially liked about JAHS is the staff, they can be funny and the students are able to speak to them about issues and they always understand. They also want you to do your best with your abilities. The school really cares about your success and will not let anything hold you back.
