My child really got lost in the crowd at the bigger high schools. The individual attention and support has really helped her make a turn-around.
My second youngest started there last year. They are well organized, friendly staff and fantastic teachers. I wish I knew about his school for my older children.
the knowledge and skills that I get behind the high school diploma cannot ever be replaced or forgotten, especially when you come from a great school like Jane Addams.
The classes at Jane Addams are smaller and the teachers make me feel comfortable. I m not embarrassed to ask for help anymore. Jane Addams High School has helped me achieve my academic goals.
Jane Addams made me successful. The teachers and staff give me individual attention if needed. They know us by first name. They are more like a family to me and they want me to be the best I can be.
I then begin to realize that the teachers, the staff and the principal really did care about me and my education. I never was in such a good environment until I came to Jane Addams High school. The teachers stay after school with me to help me with whatever I needed help with, and tutored me if I need it. The focus here at Jane Addams is for everyone to graduate and become someone in life. They focus a lot on reading and math here at this school.
When I first started at Jane Addams, she told me not to feel bad because it would only help me to improve my skills. From that moment on, I knew that JAHS was the best choice and place for me. I started to think that this could be a good thing. Being a part of Jane Addams gave me skills and I learned something about myself-- I tend to ask for help when I really don t even need it. Jane Addams has been a really good for me because they took their time to help me improve on skills like my vocabulary, reading and my math.
Throughout my years in school I have learned a lot, but even though I have spent the least time here at Jane Addams, I think here is where I have learned the most. At Curie I did learn small things, some of which I knew but the rest I just never ended up understanding, and so didn t actually learn anything. Here at Jane Addams I was able to comprehend more and learn a lot, mostly in writing and English, which was a subject that I was never able to learn or pass. I am happy that I ended up here, I feel that I am more prepared for college than I would have been if I had just graduated from Curie.
Jane Addams for me was the best choice because it was in the neighborhood and it gave me hope for a high school diploma.
Jane Addams has helped me because the teachers help me when I don t understand something. I have really changed a lot thanks to this school. I used to be lazy and didn t do my work at all, now I do it and I have good grades. Before, I never wanted to come to school, but Jane Addams has made it so fun that I don t want to miss anything, so I have perfect attendance, too.
Jane Addams has really taught me to appreciate my education and most importantly, love it. The teachers in this school definitely push me to do better and thanks to them I ve accomplished so much. Everything that I learn here I know I will need in the future. My family and friends have all pushed me to do better as well, and hearing my parents say I m proud of you is a huge step into anything else that I set my mind to.
What I like about Jane Addams high school is that the teachers actually take the time to break the problems/work down so you can get what you re doing.
I appreciate all of the JAHS staff because they gave me the chance to complete my degree. At first I was surprised because it s like a totally different world at JAHS. It s not like a traditional high school that I was in before. The small classes at Jane Addams help students to express themselves more. Students here find their own way to lead better lives. In Pathways class we are able to explore career opportunities. Students at JAHS have their own thoughts, and they act the way that they like; they are allowed to express themselves and their needs at JAHS. Teachers listen to what the students want and help them to achieve their goals in a better way than my other high schools did. At JAHS I started to understand that there is no real definition of good or bad because people at JAHS show me that we are all different and special in our own way.
They have helped me achieve what I couldn't do on my own and made me grow up ALOT. I know so much more in every subject than I ever hve. Great environment. There is no struggle unless you make it a struggle. If you do what you are suppoed to do, you will have no problems. The person who wrote that the princpal doesn't care is just a liar. Probably did domething stupid and got in trouble for it. For good kids, this is a great school. I love this school. I wouldn't ever graduate if I didn't go here.
I this school because the teachers take time to get involved and have great communication with parents. Their first focus are the students and parent communication. The staff makes it a point to get me involved, answers all my questions and make it a priority to get me involved which I appreciate. Small classes and I like the environmet. Its a bright and lively place.
This is a great school because the teachers really care about all the students. It's a really good environment and all the staff are super nice.
I love Jane Adams because they are really helpful and they really care about us. They do their best to make sure we get our work done no matter what. The staff there are also pretty funny and they will joke around with us if we are having a bad day to help cheer us up.
I recommend Jane Addams because the staff takes their time to figure out what you need and work with you from there. Assignments help prepare you for college work. My writing teacher taught me to write better. Actually all my teachers have helped me in all my subjects. I look forward to school everyday because I look forward to talking to the staff about things going on in my life.
Thank God for this school. They have helped my son more than I could have even believed. Mr. Fox has helped me understand my son and his school needs. This is the first time I can ever remember my son coming home from school and talking about what he learned. God Bless this school and all the people who work there.
I know this sounds wierd but I like jane adams because it is strict and I have learned to come to school "on time". Coming from a school that didn't care about my education, my math skills have gone up so much now and I know so much more math than I did before. Staff are not there for just a job. You can tell that they really care about us. Before I came here I didn't think I could learn, but now I know I can. Anyone that says anything bad about this school is probably a trouble maker that doesn't know how to act in school and got in trouble.
