John Jay Middle School Reviews

2 reviews
I personally had a difficult time socially, adjusting from elementary school to middle school. For 3 years wasn't placed in with anyone I knew well from elementary school and lost most of my friends for a period of time. It was a pretty difficult period of my life and I never really felt comfortable there. School always started so early and I absolutely hated getting up so early. Despite not doing that well, I feel like I still learned a lot and prepared me for High School well. I enjoyed many of the teachers, Mr. Ley, if he still works there was life-changing, but some of them were real stinkers. Last point, this school, like the high school is rich and white, if you aren't any of those things, you will not see much of yourself reflected in the student body.
