I too am a parent that has a daughter at Philo. When school first started , i was siting at a dentist appt. and an older lady just wanting to talk said hi, your son looks like he is very smart this was my 4 yr. old I said thank you, he is. Well the conversation went on and she asked where do your children go to school and i said Philo. As soon as i said that her demeanor changed. And she said i had a grandson there and plzz i ask of you to look out for your daughter, my grandson was a great student and when he entered there he did a complete u turn he went down hill. And of course i was worried but i thought i would give this school a try ... SO HERE I AM GIVING THIS SCHOOL THE WORST GRADE I CAN GIVE IT A 1 . NOT HAPPY MY DAUGHTER ALSO CHANGED AND I KNOW WHY IT'S BECAUSE OF PHILO !! PLEASE PARENTS LOOK AROUND IF YOU HAVE THE CHANCE DON'T DO WHAT I DID!! MY DAUGHTER IS MOVING SCHOOLS AS I AM TYPING THIS :)

The faculty and staff at PHILO MAGNET ACADEMY are working hard to give the students a rewarding educational experience. Now into the 4th year of the magnet program and the leadership of principal Hairston, the school has made a wonderful turnaround. The students are proud to know that they are part of a school that's been awarded by the district as showing the most growth for their math scores! This comes from motivated teachers and a hard working support staff. There are many more good things that are happening at Philo like the global monthly themes, Toyota Tapestry Grant for Science, technology enhanced classrooms, & the Chinese language program just to name a few.

Philo is an really wonderful school. I absolutely respect every single one of their teachers and staff. most importantly, Ms.Kornegay . sHe is the best acclerated math teacher I have ever gotten to know.

The staff at Philo has been put in a ridiculous situation by the district. The school has been deemed the designated ESL middle school for the district yet receives no additional support from Central Office. Despite an obvious agenda to get the school eventually shut down, the teachers and staff at Philo give their hearts and souls to the children they teach each and every day. Unlike a school like Jefferson Middle where students are already self-motivated, the staff at Philo works hard to bridge the gaps between race and socioeconomic status to really help and try to inspire its students who come from difficult backgrounds. Nowhere else in Forsyth County will you find real teachers in the trenches fighting for children that the district is intentionally trying to leave behind. For anyone who wants to see what a real teacher looks like, I implore them to visit Philo.

I have a child at Philo and I am very disgusted and quite frankly disappointed in the teachings and the staff. Philo is horrible the staff is very unprofessional and they do not know how to respect the students. I beleive that they belittle and degrade the students because of the location of the school and the sterotyped of students that attend Philo. My child was incorrectly assisgned there and it has been a nightmare! My hats off to Dt Detrude/Barkley they are working on turning the school around and boosting the morale. Children need to know that respect begets respect. I don't feel this is shown by adults at Philo. I will continue to pray for these children at Philo. Because I am a voice for my child and for the other kids as well! They need to be encouraged as well. I challenge the staff to try that!
