Jimmy Jolocon School
Dreams Fulfillment Foundation has been in partnership with Jimmy Jolocon since July 2009.
Over the years, we have given out and renewed scholarships for almost 100 students.
Also, our organization has donated over 30 used computers (processors and monitors) to the school in helping to furnish their computer lab. Lest we forget to mention, we have given out dozens of school supplies to our scholarship recipients and at times to other students who were not fortunate enough to have been selected.
Founded in 1981
Jimmy Jolocon Elementary, Junior, & Senior High School was founded in 1981 by Mr. Emmanuel D. Weiah, an educator. Jimmy Jolocon is situated in the township of Gardnersville, a suburb of Monrovia, Liberia.
Presently, the school is situated on two acres of land adjacent to the St. Michael Catholic School. The school has a 48 person staff and a two-story building comprised of 30 classrooms. The school currently has an enrollment of approximately 2,700 students.
Jimmy Jolocon is presently the defending champion of the National Education Debate, sponsored by the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) in collaboration with the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Liberia. Jimmy Jolocon is also the defending champion of the National Quizzing program that was organized by the Ministry of Education, in which many schools participated in Liberia, and is rated highly as compared to most schools operating in Liberia.
In regards to their academic performance, Jimmy Jolocon ranks among the first four schools in Liberia with an outstanding academic performance on the West African Examination Council (WAEC). Jimmy Jolocon is considered one of the best schools with brilliant students that the Ministry of Education can boast of in Liberia.
We are aware that the world is moving forward with technological breakthroughs, therefore, Jimmy Jolocon is also planning to incorporate in its curriculum a computer literacy program as soon as it can get few computers to start the program. Another long term goal of the school is to upgrade the school to a junior college that will help minimize the high illiteracy rate in Liberia.
