As Principal of Alfred I. duPont Middle School, I want to take this opportunity to share my excitement as we prepare for the 2018-2019 school year. I want to thank the entire Dragon Nation for their commitment to excellence as we continue to establish ourselves as one of the premier middle schools in Duval County, one with a rich tradition of high academic standards. We are very proud of the academic achievement of our students on the 2018 Florida Standards Assessment as our overall school score increased by 59 points!!! We successfully increased proficiency in several categories according to data recently released by the Florida Department of Education. Our overall Math scores increased by 8%, Science 4%, Literacy 1%, Civics 36%, and Acceleration (Algebra & Biology) increased 11%! I feel confident that our students will continue their award winning performance this year in our quest to become an “A” school!
