There are so many reasons for which I love this school. Let me start by saying that the teachers in this school are the best. They will go out of their way to make sure you are informed and kept in the loop when it comes to your child's progress. This gives the parents a chance to help their children improve on areas that are needed and are also given the tools to do so by our great and caring teachers. Diversity is also one of the reasons why I love this school. My children have learned about so many cultures and traditions from the friendships they have developed over the years. Not only are they learning the importance of socializing but also the languages that they are exposed to gives them a sense of curiosity with other parts of the world that they would otherwise not have. Our faculty, staff, parents and students are always looking for ways to make our school better and give back to the community.
We at Jackson are consistently looking for ways to improve the educational and social experience for students, staff, faculty and parents.
Wonderful diversity of student body and families, outstanding teachers, tremendous leadership. The school inspires us as people to do our best in all things!
Teachers are very dedicated to their work. They motivate my kids to go the extra mile in any subject.
The school encorages kids to learn. They create a positive environment for the students. The teachers are very involved, and have a great sense of pride in the academics taught there.
It's a wonderful school. Great teachers, friendly kids, good encourages for the kids to learn, diversify cultures for the kids, and my kids likes the school.
Diversity of students; all inclusive Parent Council; superb Chinese program; enthusiastic and fully engaged administration, faculty and staff create a healthy learning environment academically, socially and emotionally; unified grounded principles allow for a safe and secure place strong enough to encourage new approaches and continued growth.
It has a great sense of 'school citizen' where each student is expected to be a steward of the school. The older students serve as models for the younger students- they often come into the younger classrooms and read to the students, play games, and create special crafts for the young students. It has a calm, ordered atmosphere, and it seems like a true community.
Jackson provides an exceptional opportunity for youth to grow into him/her self in a postive way!
unified and dedicated administrator, teachers and parents language emphasis and awareness among the children
Excellent faculty.... Respectful children and family members....Top notch education!
We are blessed to have such caring teachers and staff that inspire our diverse student population to excel in all the do!
We have the best teachers and support staff and the best parent group and LSC. Together they make this one of the best schools to educate a young mind in Chicago.
We have great socioeconomic & ethnic diversity, teachers who care about our children, and administrators who encourage parent participation.
I love this school! The people are always welcoming and it's extremely diverse. We have students from all over, including Greece, Germany, Hawaii, Cuba, and lots more. In addition, all the teachers make learning fun. Throughout all the schools I have attended, this one succeeds the standards in education and fun. I won't forget the memories I've made at Jackson.
There is a saying that you sometimes don't appreciate something until it is gone. I am a former teacher at AJLA who has since moved overseas. You will have to travel far and wide to find a quality school such as Andrew Jackson Language Academy. Reflecting back on my teaching experience there I can honestly tell you that it was a milestone in my teaching career. I worked with a top notch group of teachers who always went the extra mile for their students. The big difference was that they took the time to care to make a difference in the lives of children. When AJLA students graduate they are fully prepared to enter high school and have an excellent foundation for life. There was much more to learn than your ABC's at this school, you learned about life, about proper behavior, self-control, and learned life skills.
I am a student at Andrew Jackson Language Academy. I would like to say my experiences here have been great. But I can also speak for the whole student body that we miss Dr. Zeltmann. She was the only reason that kept me up top on things that I thought I couldn't do. This school is great but Dr. Zeltmann wouldv'e made my last year even better.
