  • it is the vision of leadership and dedication to excellence at Bethune that has it moving in the proper direction. it is a hidden gem in a lost community. Bethune offers hope to an x-generation! not knowing about it history/his-story! Bethune is fertile ground to produce life changers for the future leadership of Chicago. Amen to that

  • My daughter has attended JOA for 4yr. She is in a very safe inviroment, that I feel good about.The school might not have a lot of extras but it is a Christian School where they can learn about Jesus. This is the most importaint part of life,the rest will fall into place when you put jesus first. The students here learn about life in a positive manner and by teachers that love God and care about the children. i would recommend this school to anyone weather they go to church or not, principles they learn will be used in everyday life.
