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.
