Jennifer Morillo, Principal 

Dear Parents, Staff, Students, and Stakeholders,

I began my education career twenty years ago as a middle school math teacher. My leadership experiences have included serving as a middle school assistant principal, an elementary school principal, and most recently as district director of teaching and learning. I believe all students can learn, given a positive, safe and orderly learning environment that is committed to meeting students’ needs.  I believe a school’s core instructional mission is not simply to ensure that students are taught but to ensure that they learn.
Given the enormity of our charge as educators, I value the importance of collective effort.  I am energized by the many challenges and opportunities we have before us at Robert Smalls International Academy.  Together we will set a new course focused on student learning, a commitment to high expectation, and strong community. It is my intention to work together to ensure a high quality educational experience is provided to all of our students.
