1 imageTherma Dikenson- homege Thelma Ellis Dickerson was a civil rights leader, educator and child advocate. She was a teacher and administrator in Hartford Public Schools. Before winning election to the school board in 1983 at age 59, Ms. Dickerson served for 14 years, including a term as board president. Not satisfied with the slow rate of district change, in 1997, Thelma Ellis Dickerson founded Jumoke Academy in the north end of Hartford. The term Jumoke is Yoruba (a Nigerian tribal language) for “the child is loved.” Ms. Dickerson envisioned a family-oriented and child-centered school in which every student was nurtured and educated. Jumoke was charged with the sacred duty of closing the academic achievement gap that leaves children behind and perpetuates historical inequities in our society. Over the next ten years Jumoke became an academic powerhouse, going on to receive statewide and national recognition — all the while drawing strength from its homegrown mission and character. Today we have grown to an enrollment of 575 students and serve Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade.
