Welcome to Medgar Evers Primary Academic Center

Dear Medgar Evers Students and Families,

Welcome to the Ford Heights School District website! Please take time to view all of the site’s great, new features. This is my 9th year as Principal of Medgar Evers Primary Academic Center, and I would like to welcome everyone back to another great year of learning.

As we approach this new school year, we will continue to keep student achievement as our top priority. We will continue to meet every child where they are and move them forward. Parents are valuable partners, and we encourage our parents to visit our school and participate in all the great activities that we have planned this school year.  We realize that a high-quality elementary school education is essential preparation to student’s long-term success. I view education as a life-long process and continue to learn from our students, staff, and parents. Our school district theme “Excellence Is Our Brand” will continue to guide our mission to provide a rigorous and joyful school environment.  Our overarching goal is to encourage active student engagement to foster a lifetime love for learning.

With your support, Medgar Evers Primary Academic Center will continue to be a positive environment where everyone is successful. We value and appreciate our students, staff and families!

It is my pleasure to serve!

Monique C. Johnson
