Ms. Monique Johnson – Principal

Parents, Guardians, Family Members, and Friends:

Welcome to the Medgar Evers page!  Medgar Evers is a Pre-Kindergarten through fourth grade school with an enrollment of approximately 270 students.

The students of Ford Heights represent the Next Generation of Excellence.  We are excited to continue our tradition of quality education by a strong core of instructional experts (classroom teachers and paraprofessionals), caring and dedicated staff (custodians, cafeteria workers, Main Office staff), and veteran instructional leadership.  Our concentration and focus targets those 21st century skills students will need to be successful in school, careers, and life.

We are a PBIS school (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports), offering intervention programs to help students meet their greatest potential both academically and behaviorally.  Within the classroom setting, students receive whole group, small group, and differentiated instruction.  Additional academic assistance includes the three-tiered Response to Intervention (RtI), as well as After School, Saturday School, and Summer Enrichment programs.  We are strengthening our bonds with students through morning meetings in the classroom, monthly character themes, and the daily Mustang Pledge.

Our building theme for the year is UNITY:  when you are unified, nothing and no one can stop you from attaining your goals.  We encourage you to visit our building to see our students and staff in action.  The education of your children is the priority each and every day; we strive to make sure that fun is learning and learning is fun!

Here’s to a productive 2017-2018 school year – GO MUSTANGS!
