"Welcome To Jane Addams High School!"

 

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We appreciate your visit and are pleased to use this medium to keep you current on all Jane Addams High School activities, including upcoming events and various Addams HS and LAUSD publications.  As you navigate through our site you will learn more about our students, teachers and administration.

 

Located adjacent to John F. Kennedy High School, Jane Addams High School serves students from Granada Hills and the greater San Fernando Valley area.  We have a diverse student population from 20 different high schools in attendance.  With a population and class size that's smaller than a comprehensive high school your child will receive more personal attention with a more flexible academic program that is tailored to their personal needs. Our focus on individualized learning, innovative credit recovery programs, college preparation, and high expectations are what set us apart from traditional comprehensive high schools.  We maintain a structured but relaxed atmosphere where students feel accepted, safe and supported. All of our teachers are fully credentialed and we have a terrific support staff including a part-time Counselor, full-time Counseling Assistant, full-time Dean of Students and a Teaching Assistant/Tutor.  We offer an afternoon credit recovery program as well as college courses through L.A. Mission College.  We will be offering our third college course, Sociology 1, beginning August 29. We are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) through 2022.
