AJLA is a good school but we are slowly going downhill. Over the past few years, the parents and families coming in are getting more and more lazy. They feel lucky to be at AJLA but don't realize that they need to step up and contribute. The reason it is good is because of the involvement of past parents. When parents aren't involved in their child's education, schools go down. So new parents - do something, get involved, start volunteering, start donating time and money. Stop coming into school twice a year just to pick up report cards. Stop being absent before it's too late.

Coming from a private school, I was a little wary at what to expect from this school. I must admit that Andrew Jackson has exceeded my expectations. My son is thriving and learning much more that I thought he would in kindergarten! The staff,teachers, volunteers, and parents all help this school be such the success it is! The class sizes are still larger than private school, but kudos to the teachers and staff who keep up the excellence despite the larger classes. I am thankful that my son has the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful learning environment.

Andrew Jackson is a great school and I could not be happier with my child's development. I wish the rest of the world had this kind of diversity, kindness and dedication.

So, to the real estate broker who said that moving near AJ doesn't help your chances, even if you're 1.5 miles away. I read where there was a different lottery for kids within 1.5 miles - are you saying that's incorrect. I'm just asking because we are just starting to look where to move in Chicago for next school year (2013-14) and just want to get a handle on all of this...thanks.

This school has done wonders for my daughter! I was always on the look out for a great school for my children and that is exactly what I've found in this school. From principal all the way to the lunch staff , they keep these kids well rounded and completely grounded. Its excellent. The parents are great also. I work crazy hours so I'm not able to be as involved as I want but they always make you feel welcomed and included. Best school ever .

Dear Parent, I am a real estate broker and a mother of two who also lives in the area and would like to inform you that living in the area does not provide you with instant access to AJ because it is not considered a neighborhood school. Therefore, please be careful if promises or statements have been made to you during your home buying search or purchase as to the likelihood of acceptance at AJ will be based on lottery.

Posted March 14, 2012

Does anybody know what are your chances of getting accepted if you live in the neighborhood (less than 1.5 mi away?). We are buying a house around the school and are looking forward to having our son attend, but I am worried about this lottery system even for neighborhood kids. Any opinions would be appreciated.

Been at ajla for 6 years as a parent. I have to say I am very happy with the teachers and principal. The principal is fair and understands children and is very supportive both to parents and students alike. Communication with teachers is not a problem. My guess parents that don't like the principal because he is fair and runs a tight ship and the parent didn't get snobby way. If there is anything wrong is a few high strung Parents that want their way and when the don't get it the complain.

Fnally a parent speaks the truth about AJLA. I having been waiting for this review. You speak the truth as to what really goes on beyond the black picket fence. Your opinion Feb 1st Parent is much appreciated.

I attended AJLA from 1997 - 2002. The ethnic diversity at the school provided me with the true meaning of a well rounded education. The faculty and staff always went the extra mile for us. Teachers truly cared about our education and ensured that we would be well prepared for high school. Because of AJLA, I excelled at Whitney Young High School and now a proud alumna of UCLA. Educators at AJLA understand that the foundation of a good education starts at a very young age. The importance of taking copious notes in class was first introduced to me in the 7th grade, and to this day (as a law student) I am still going back to the basics of what I learned when I was 13! I couldn't have gone this far without AJLA being there for the primal years of my educational career!

Teachers, Principal, Parents involvement all outstanding. I have two kids at AJLA. one upper grade, one lower grade could not be more pleased with the whole school staff and the education they are getting. Again just outstanding.

This is school the bees knees. The teachers are very attentive to the students needs. The administration is also top notch. They always look at the children 1st before the make any decision. Parent involvement is 2nd to none. One just has to walk into the school and see parents that are willing to help at anytime. The principal is in constant communication with parents. Kids are very happy and excited going to school each morning. AJLA is building them a solid foundation for many years to come.

The principal has an impressive knowledge of each student, down to his/her reading tastes. The teachers and building staff are dedicated and generous.

Posted May 26, 2011

AJLA provides a solid education so if that's all that matters, this is your school. The principal who in 2007 inherited a superior operation has a stand-off ish "too busy" kind of attitude. The relations between many parents and the principal and teachers is confrontational. It's become SOP, very stressful. In the upper grades, support is lacking. It's all about maintaining rank at this school. Sad to say about such a good school.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 26, 2011

I strongly agree with the parent who posted today, May 26, 2011. It s a very true assessment of the leadership in the school today. Support is definitely lacking in the upper grades from the teachers as well as the principal.

This school is a parent's dream. The parent involvement is excellent. The principal communicates with the parents regularly. The teachers excel in their areas of expertise. I highly recommend this school to anyone in Chicago.

It provides phenomenal leadership within the school. The teachers provide excellent instruction. They have the most advanced language program offered nationwide. The cross cultural experience provides a true reflection of our global society. It is a well direct public school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

The different student groups are identified by the Illinois State Board of Education. If there are a small number of students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
