Jones College Prep is a very diverse college preparatory school. Students are selected from all over Chicago, and it is evident in the population. Teachers strive to help students succeed both inside the class and outside, and there is ample time provided for extra help. Because the school is college preparatory, the counselors really focus on early applications to colleges and for scholarships. The academics are very understandable and provide a good platform for upward mobility in terms of class selection. One downside is that the school consists of two unconnected building that are 6+ floors high, so a lot of climbing is required!

Great academics, people, and teachers. Teachers are always there to help while surrounded in a beautiful new building and environment! Academics are taken extremely seriously and all students are highly motivated.
Jones is a loving environment full of students and teachers that thoroughly enjoy being there! Teachers are always willing to meet with students during designated ac lab times and before and after school, to fit the students schedule.
