    "What I like about the school is the diversity of students. Teachers are always available to help if struggling on a subject. I just wish more students are involved with extra curriculum activities and school functions. I feel students are under too much pressure for academic success and do not take time to enjoy some of the school activities."

    "My son would absolutely choose Jones again and his four-year experience highlights why Jones is recognized locally and nationally. A public school located in the Chicago Loop, Jones pulls kids from all over the city and from a variety of racial, cultural, and economic backgrounds and engages them in small class settings with high caliber and committed teachers, staff, and administrators. Its location makes it easy for most students to commute via public transportation. My son enjoys his teachers and his classes (most all classes at Jones are honors and AP level). My son has an IEP and a case manager who supports him and stays in regular contact with him and his teachers. His teachers are approachable, they support his accommodations, and his foreign language teachers have all been creative in addressing his learning disability. The Jones cross-country/track program has been a highlight of my son's four years and has impacted him significantly as a person, athlete, teammate. The coaches are committed to the students as athletes and individuals and run a highly competitive program with standards for behavior on and off the team. There appears to be mutual trust and respect among the coaches and runners. I think my son will look back and regard his cross-country/track experience at Jones to be one of the most meaningful aspects of high school, one where he achieved substantial personal growth. Students at Jones, for the most part, are open-minded and accepting. My son is not in theatre, but attends all the performances, which earn great reviews. Parents support the school hands-on and through donations. Jones has provided a nice high school experience for my son and our family and it's bittersweet to be moving on."
