  • APS Statement Regarding Personnel Changes

    Atlanta Public Schools is appreciative of the leadership demonstrated by all of our principals, particularly those who have served the district for many years.  Like all school districts, APS conducts an annual assessment of where we are as a system, as well as a review of any revisions to state law. Necessary changes are made to ensure the district remains in compliance and that all of our students are prepared for the next level and long-term success. This process includes an intense and methodical performance review of all of our schools and their leadership teams. For the full statement, please click here.

  • Atlanta Public Schools parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey administered by the Georgia Department of Education. Data from the Georgia Parent Survey will be used along with the Georgia Student Health Survey and the Georgia School Personnel Survey to calculate the School Climate Star Rating within the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI).

    The Georgia Parent Survey has 20 questions and should take no more than 5-10 minutes to complete it. Data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.

It is imperative that we promote a comfortable and welcoming environment in which our students and teachers feel safe, respected and competent.

Overall, students are doing great with adhering to 
the“Big 4” : 
1. Wear uniform daily
2. No  profanity
3. No fighting
4. Be respectful to everyone. 

If you have a concern regarding your child's attendance, grades, performance or discipline, please communicate with the teacher first and then with the administration.  Teachers are more than willing to speak and conference with you.

Together, we can make a difference, and I hope this school year will be the beginning of a new journey for Jean Childs Young Middle with you in transitioning Jean Childs Young Middle School from GOOD to GREAT!
