Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Does Jones offer shadow days?
A: No, we only offer one Open House in October.
Q: My family is moving to the Chicago Loop and would like to attend Jones. 
A: Jones is a selective enrollment, not a neighborhood school, so students come from across the city. Living in close proximity to the school does not guarantee acceptance, and students still must apply through
Q: Are there other opportunities to tour the school or meet the faculty?
A: We recommend coming to a public school event like a performing arts or sports event. While you won't be able to meet the teachers or tour the school, you will be able to get a sense of the school atmosphere. See the events calendar and athletic calendar.
Q: Do we need to RSVP to the Open House?
A: No, the event is open to everyone on a first-come basis.
There are many parking lots in the South Loop—several located on State Street, across from the Jones. Come early to get a good spot. Parking in the area can range from $10 to $25+, and weekend rates may vary.
