Dedicated and caring teachets and staff. They really have a great way of connecting with the students and getting the best out of them.

My son has been with Jahn Pre-K and will be entering Kindergarten this fall. I also have a daughter who will be entering Pre-K this fall. The Pre-K program, by the way, earned a Gold Standard. It has been a pleasure to see how this school has blossomed during these 2 years. Mr. Herring does a great job of connecting with both the students and parents. We even see him acting as crossing guard in the morning! Jahn is a Level 1 school (highest rating). The school has a wonderful and dedicated Friends of Jahn group, which has steadily grown over the past couple years. Their tireless efforts have raised funds through various events, which has directly benefited the school. The community of parents is very involved and committed to the ongoing success of the school. I look forward to seeing my children grow within the confines of Jahn!

We have been at Jahn for four years. This past year has been the best year so far. Carol Buhler, the 4th Grade teacher, was phenomenal. She was the best teacher we have had in any CPS school.

The new principal at Jahn is overly concerned about catering to the pre-school, kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade parents. He seems to have forgotten the middle school students. He is also not very responsive to ALL parents. Everyone deserves a good education, not just the "newcomers" to the school.

Amount of homework: Agree

I've seen the homework my child bring home adjust based on her speed of learning. It has gotten progressively harder as the year has gone on and I'm happy to see her rise to the occasion. The teachers are always monitoring how she's doing and the classes all have a special University of Chicago reading evaluation done throughout the year.

I think that the greatschools ratings data is outdated from the 2013 school year -- this school is improving dramatically each year but the biggest strides have been in the past 2 years -- it has jumped now to a Level 1 rated CPS school with high scores across the board in academic achievement, attendance, and 360-evaluations. The teachers and administration are so receptive to parents and the whole Jahn community is so approachable. You won't find another school in the area with the diversity, co-teaching blended classrooms, and staff:student ratio that Jahn has. It is a wonderful place of learning for my two kids.

Jahn is a great up and coming school. The principal Mr. Herring and teachers are fantastic. The community of parents are really welcoming and involved as well. We are really happy with our experience here.

We couldn't be more happy with Jahn Elementary, the staff, amazing Principal that's committed and driven to make Jahn the best school around. The curriculum is the same as any other CPS school, having friends in other schools I've got to learn first hand that no other school is different or better then Jahn. My Kindergartener last year started getting bored and acting out in class, his teacher right away suggested challenging him more. His behavior not only improved but his reading, writing and spelling completely turned around. Top notch teachers for a Top notch School!! Thanks Jahn!!

This is a great school with a committed staff and amazing principal. We are a full inclusion school, so students get the benefits of two dynamic teachers in the classroom teaching to all learning styles.
