    "l am a parent who is aspiring to get my child admitted into Jones College Prep High School. From information gathered so far and little interaction with School Administration, this is a multicultural, accommodating,student-centered and an excellent academic performing School l would recommend to any parent."

    "I am currently a freshman at Jones, class of 2017. I have to say that the school is not very rigorous and as competitive as other selective enrollment high schools. If you want to go to Jones, then it is really up to you whether you want to succeed and work with what you got when going to Jones. Yes, the school is welcoming and the teachers are willing to help. The teachers do give a load of homework based on the classes I am currently taking, so it takes me a good 3-4 hours completing my homework. The new building is great and the sport teams are all pretty good. For freshman year, I joined the Tennis team and got on varsity and we didn't do as well as we were capable of, but next year is going to be a big difference than freshman year! I am starting to really like the school, but I think the school needs to improve on rigor in academics even if most students do well based on their grades and exams."

    "In response to the Dec. 18th post, I say this: I am a freshman, class of 2017. Jones is great, I have adjusted well and have people I can consider my friends. The homework seems light, thanks to the Academic Lab at the end of the day. Jones has countless clubs and many sports teams, your son clearly isn't taking advantage of them. Jones is very laid back, and I feel very loyal to my school, Jones doesn't boast. The new building is clean and pristine, and there is loyalty and respect among all of the Classes. No complaints here, but your son clearly isn't trying, as there are six sport teams every season and countless clubs have flyers out. Don't like what you see in a club? Make your own with permission! Countless options are available."

    "Jones College Prep is the first CPS school to win the US Dept of Education's Blue Ribbon Award twice. The class of 2013 (200 students) were offered $33MM in college scholarships, and the most recent average ACT score was 26.5. The school is the most ethnically and economically diverse Selective Enrollment school in Chicago, and this year's freshman class hails from 169 different elementary schools and 63 zip codes. Located in the educational and culture corridor of the South Loop neighborhood, a new pre-law and pre-engineering CTE program is being offered this year. The new Perkins+Will LEED certified building will open to the students on Aug 26 after 10+ years in the planning, and its inspiring interior includes a gymnasium, auditorium/theatre, indoor pool, dance/wrestling studio, library, and giant atrium, all of which are available to the public on a rental basis. Dr. P Joseph Powers and his staff are phenomenal, and the teaching staff is unparalleled. Not only is the education experience superior, but the feeling of community among the students/faculty/parents is unique in a high school setting. Jones College Prep is truly a treasured jewel in the city of Chicago."
