Before JAHS my grades were not where they were supposed to be, and my poor attendance was messing up my grades and credits. But when I got to JAHS everything changed. The staff at JAHS is great. I’ve gotten better in subjects that I’ve never be good at, like math. The teachers make sure you learn things and take time to make sure I’ve got an understanding of my work. I love Jane Addams High School. The staff actually cares about students and they will do everything to help outside of school and inside of school. The principal, Ms. Comparini, also cares about the students passing and she gets involved with us.
I was looking for a GED program when I found out about Jane Addams High School. To be honest, I can say Jane Addams has helped me be the person I am today. Being in this school has opened many doors for me. It taught me how to value things and have morals. I’ve learned about self-sufficiency. At JAHS I am more engaged and participate more. They push me to do my best and they push me to get my stuff together. I actually feel encouraged to go to school and I don't feel really overwhelmed or stressed as I did before. I like how teachers are so enthusiastic, caring and kind. They always find different ways to teach us, making it fun and easy. If it wasn’t for this school I believe I wouldn’t be where I am now, and that's something I'm very thankful of.
I was successful at Jane Addams High School and not my prior school because JAHS is a way better school than my former school. Jane Addams High School is way more organized and helpful. They have many great teachers that help students and actually want students to succeed. My prior school didn’t have that.
Jane Addams provided strategies and skills that are required in order to think critically and cope effectively with obstacles and challenges that I will face in everyday life. The school is very organized, kept together, and has great teachers that motivated me to do better in school. I really enjoyed my experience being at Jane Addams High School. I really appreciate this school and I learned a lot from my experience there.
