Good parts and bad parts and unfortunately the bad parts stick with you a little more than the good. My son had one of this years teacher last year and this yr has been a totally different experience. It seems like she doesn't want to teach. She is bland and boring. The teachers focus on all the wrong things to correct and don't correct the important things or properly reward the good things. Disappointing experience. Administration is pompous and more concerned with public opinion than parent and student opinion. Hey, dude, you aint a politician!

I think some teachers still have a fire for teaching. But the one my son has this year compared to how she taught last year it's terrible decline.

Like I said earlier the difference between males and females treatement is rediculous. It isn't causing the girls to respect the boys and the boys are probably learning to disrespect the girls. If the teachers even paid attention for a second they would see or hear the boys attitudes.

Supposedly raised money for sending kids to camp this summer but nothing ever happened with it. It is all a bunch of talk to look good for tv cameras and the newspapers but when it is time to actually make a difference I don't see it happening here. Fluff!

The way this school forces male students to be subservient to female students is disturbing. The teachers enforce gentlemenly behavior but never once address the nasty attitudes of the girls at this school. They will make the boys go to the back of the line at lunch no matter how long the boys have been in line. If the line moves slow and another class comes in, guess what boys, you have to let those girls go to the front to! It is going to backfire because no male is going to actually put that in practice in reality. And these girls are going to expect it and have a harsh realization when men don't treat them that way. I have a son and a daughter and I am mad over the way these boys are being punished just for being a male. These girls need a little bit of home training and school training as well. I am disappointed in the way the school encourages this bheavior. And don't let a girl accuse a boy of something, that boy will be darn near crucified and never even asked for his side of the story.

Allen Jay Middle is now a magnet school, entitled Allen Jay Middle: A Preparatory Academy. There is NO better school in Guilford County. The principal, Mr. Kevin Wheat, is outstanding. I CANNOT say enough good things about his leadership, personality, caring for kids and willingness to help. Everyday my son comes home with something exciting to say. He LOVES school and the opportunities that Allen Jay offer to set it apart from other schools. They use music and rhythm to get ids excited and involved. They take field trips to university campuses and in every way, the staff has worked to raise the standard for every student in their charge. My son is only in 5th grade and I am already worried about where he will go to high school, because seriously, I have no idea how he would ever go back into a traditional school setting after the amazing experience at Allen Jay! The building was old but is being completely renovated and will be AMAZING when it is complete. Parents are involved and excited to help. It is just a wonderful environment, led by people who care about the student as a whole person-mind, body and spirit. I love this place! Mr. Wheat for President!! :)

Allen Jay Middle is moving to a brand new school next year. Just a bit of info to help parents in decision making about moving into the area. The previous parent was right, the principals are great at Allen Jay - it is up and coming.

Allen Jay Middle school in my point of view is okay with their academics. The avalibility of music, arts, sports, and other extracurricular activities are normal. Although the school is giving a good education to the students but the school needs a major renovation. It should look as good as it really is. The level of parent involvement is low, only time you see parents is a field trip, or an award assembly. I think the school should try to incourage parents to get involved with the school and their children more. It also has nicest principals there.
