• Jim Maples Academy Students and Families,

    It is my great pleasure to greet you as the principal of Jim Maples Academy! The JMA team of teachers and staff are truly a talented, caring, and committed group of individuals who work hard to ensure that our JMA students are ready for a lifetime of success.

    We strive to support students in becoming academically and personally sound individuals who are ready to face the challenges ahead in education and in life. We want to help them grow to become positive, contributing members of the community that treat one another with kindness and respect.

    We look forward to the partnership that we can create with the various members of our JMA community.  I encourage parents and guardians to get involved in their child’s education through the various school committees, school events, parent meetings, and Parent Teacher Association (PTA).

    This website provides valuable information regarding the various opportunities offered to our students and their parents. I would also encourage our students to get involved in the extra and co-curricular activities that interest them. Being involved in school activities will make their educational experience even more enjoyable.

    I look forward to an exciting, meaningful, and successful year for everyone that is a part of the JMA community and family.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about our school.

    We are looking forward to a great school year!

    Dr. Andrew Bishop
