Principal's Message

Principal Leonard EppsGreetings to Current and Future Families of the Journalism & Media Academy Magnet School,

Journalism and media offer some of the most exciting career opportunities in the world today. As a result of JMA's relevant and challenging curriculum, our students will be prepared to enter college or the workforce with advanced skills that will set them apart from other candidates. Our partnership with Connecticut Public Broadcasting Network, where our seniors work side by side with industry professionals, will give graduates the confidence and ability to be successful in any career they may choose.

Now that we have settled into our state-of-the-art facilities, we are building our traditions and are open to new ideas and possibilities. JMA's professional faculty and staff bring a great deal of talent and experience that inspires our students to achieve at their highest academic and personal levels. Focusing on the values of Discipline, Respect, Unity, and Maturity, our students develop a sense of responsibility for one another and their community. They  use journalism and media, not only as their voice to effectively communicate with the rest of the world, but also as a method to create social change.

I look forward to meeting you and working with you to provide the best education for your child.


Leonard Epps
