Jane Addams High School5

I was successful at JAHS and not at my prior school because at my other school didn't care about what I learn they just care about showing up to my classes. At JAHS they care that you learn the material and meet their super high standards by helping you and challenging your learning skills.
Coming to Jane Addams High School I realized what I was truly capable of. JAHS has given me courage to push myself further in life. This school has changed me for the best, and given me more to life. I recommend this school.
Being in Jane Addams for only a short time, I have learned way more in Jane Addams than I did in my last high school. The teachers make sure you understand the subject so if you don t they will start from where it all started so you understand everything you need to know. I have learned so much in the little time that I have been here. It s great.
Jane Addams has given my daughter a chance to finish high school and move on with her life where other schools did not allow her to. Other school casted her aside and Jane Addams High School helped her to realize her talents to achieve a high school diploma. I wouldn t send her to any other school.
Before I came to JAHS I attended five other high schools. I was kicked out of the first three. I used fight a lot. I found out about Jane Addams on August 19th 2013. Before JAHS, I was going through a lot of personal problems such as family issues, gangs, depression, and stress. I was a runaway at one point. I was jumped, stabbed, and just felt abandoned. JAHS teachers spoke to me respectively, and they also seemed to know exactly what I was going through. They took the time to get to know me, and they convinced me to keep on the right path. The school became like a new family to me. I am really grateful for Jane Addams I know that if I never came to this school, I would end up some where I don t want to be.
JAHS has by far been my best school. It has been here that I have completely bettered myself as a person, and have been a complete and different person. I do often realize that coming to JAHS was the best second chance that I had ever received, I have educated and furthered myself here as an adult and as a scholar, I am proud to say that Jane Addams High School did not fail me when I needed it most. The atmosphere at JAHS is uplifting and every day is something new and different for me. I am more than proud and thankful for the time I have been here, from support staff, to my mentors, they have all saved my life.
This school keeps kids on track. They are very disciplined and the teachers communicate well with students and parents. My son has done very well at Jane Addams and has kept him out of trouble. He went to Kelly, Juarez and Rudy Lozano high schools before he went to Jane Addams and none of those schools compare to Jane Addams High School.
