    "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."

    "So, to the real estate broker who said that moving near AJ doesn't help your chances, even if you're 1.5 miles away. I read where there was a different lottery for kids within 1.5 miles - are you saying that's incorrect. I'm just asking because we are just starting to look where to move in Chicago for next school year (2013-14) and just want to get a handle on all of this...thanks."

    "This school has done wonders for my daughter! I was always on the look out for a great school for my children and that is exactly what I've found in this school. From principal all the way to the lunch staff , they keep these kids well rounded and completely grounded. Its excellent. The parents are great also. I work crazy hours so I'm not able to be as involved as I want but they always make you feel welcomed and included. Best school ever ."
