    "I was the longest standing Jackson Parent( 20 years) until my youngest two Elijah and Ridge were provided academic scholarships and moved to the East Coast.. Principal Ditto has his ears on not only the academic pulse of these students but also the social emotional component . My daughter Taylor Brown was the first CPS honorary school board member who graduated from Jackson and my other children including Glenn has gone on to see and experienced amazing lives since Jackson. We are AA and have experienced slight under estimations because of its diversity however all six of my children have been world changers and it's partly due to Jackson! Grateful that I was a part of that family!"

    "Our family was new to AJLA this past year & our child loves the school & is thriving. I find the teachers/staff to be welcoming & sincere in their focus on my child's academic & emotional well-being. Disappointingly, I have not felt welcomed by some of the more active parent volunteers. I take offense at the blanket statement that a reviewer made regarding new parents being lazy. If you hope to garner more participation & not alienate the new parents who have been participating, I would be more sensitive with word choice. Being new to the school this past year, I was regularly involved in my child's classroom, volunteered for 2 or more wider school events & donated a good amount of money. Now that we have made it through year 1, I plan to increase my involvement. That being said, when I did participate in school activities, I found some of the existing parents were not welcoming (did not speak or did not communicate timely). Despite some challenges, I will still volunteer in the best interest of my child, the school & for the many parents who have been welcoming. New parents, I know we care & hope you aren't discouraged from participating. AJLA is a great community!"

    "AJLA is a good school but we are slowly going downhill. Over the past few years, the parents and families coming in are getting more and more lazy. They feel lucky to be at AJLA but don't realize that they need to step up and contribute. The reason it is good is because of the involvement of past parents. When parents aren't involved in their child's education, schools go down. So new parents - do something, get involved, start volunteering, start donating time and money. Stop coming into school twice a year just to pick up report cards. Stop being absent before it's too late."

    "Coming from a private school, I was a little wary at what to expect from this school. I must admit that Andrew Jackson has exceeded my expectations. My son is thriving and learning much more that I thought he would in kindergarten! The staff,teachers, volunteers, and parents all help this school be such the success it is! The class sizes are still larger than private school, but kudos to the teachers and staff who keep up the excellence despite the larger classes. I am thankful that my son has the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful learning environment."

    "Andrew Jackson is a great school and I could not be happier with my child's development. I wish the rest of the world had this kind of diversity, kindness and dedication."
