Jumoke Academy is a school well deserving of the postive recognition. The students are taught to be educationally responsible, as well as the teachers. Everyone (all staff) are encoraged and expected to aim high at all times

I would rate Jumoke a 10 because of the Teacher's commitment to raising responsible, respectful and ready to learn. My son started Kindergarten in 2007 and it amazing how he has learned and how his self confidence grown over the school year. As part of an active PTA, I highly recommend Jumoke Academy to future students. Submitted by a parent and PTA member

The quality of academic programs is excellent; and the extra curricular programs of violin, viola and cello, dance and drum, choir is exceptional. Parents are very active and positively involved in the school

My son has attended Jumoke Academy since 2nd grade, and I have nothing but thanks to give to the staff. 'Each One, Teach One' should be the model of the school, because the buisness of the school is to nurture and teach. From the parents to the teachers, this is truely a caring family environment. This is my son's last year and I am hoping to find a middle school that can live up to the foundation that Jumoke has laid for my son.

I think Jumoke Academy is great. Everyone knows each other personally, everyone is so nice and friendly. Also the same to the kids they really care about the kids.
