As the parent of a scholar of the first graduating class here at Bluford Drew Jemison Academy, I understand and appreciate the value of a solid education for our scholars. The middle school years provide a scholar with challenging and exciting learning opportunities. The Bluford Drew Jemison Academy faculty and staff are committed to providing a rigorous academic program, enriching extracurricular activities and most importantly, setting high expectations for all.
The faculty and staff of Bluford Drew Jemison STEM Academy promote a safe, positive learning environment, which I know is the foundation for a good education. Scholars must feel good about their learning environment. In order to ensure a constructive learning atmosphere, we recognize there must be a collaborative work effort with our parents and community members. We encourage positive interaction between our parents, community members, and school personnel. When we work in unison and with communication, we are able to implement new initiatives, reduce challenging incidents, and quickly address the everyday student issues.
I support an open door policy and try to make myself available as much as possible. If you would like to meet with me, I encourage you to please schedule an appointment through my Administrative Secretary Ms. Harris. I thank you for bringing us your scholar, and look forward to a productive school year.
