Greetings Jumoke Academy Parent/Guardian(s):
It is my pleasure to bring you greetings from our entire faculty and staff and to welcome you to our website as the new principal-select of Jumoke Academy Honors at P.L. Dunbar. I am new to the area from across the county by way of Louisiana and Georgia. Proudly, I have served as the principal of two turnaround schools prior to becoming the principal at JAH-Dunbar. I have served schools and communities similar to JAH-Dunbar for many years; beginning my teaching career in 1996. I have served large urban systems as an Elementary School Teacher, Title I Director, Assistant Principal and Principal. I have developed a passion for the work of turnaround leadership and therefore I eagerly accepted this position as a gift of servitude and human-kindness for the students in Bridgeport, CT.
Excitedly, I am pleased to announce the successful partnership of Bridgeport Public Schools and Family Urban Schools of Excellence with the unveiling of Jumoke Academy Honors (JAH) at P.L. Dunbar. As the new principal, I look forward to serving your scholars this year and the years to come as we have lots of changes to implement and several rigorous goals to accomplish.
What’s new at JAH-Dunbar:
Wholeheartedly, I would like to thank all parents and guardians for taking this journey with us. I welcome all opportunities to share the new school model and I can be reached via email at email@example.com , by phone or by visiting the school Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00-4:00pm.
Together we will make JAH-P. L. Dunbar School the finest school in the State of Connecticut.
Schools uniforms can be purchased at the school. There are specific uniform pieces required for Jumoke Academy Honors at Dunbar.
