Douglas L. Jamerson Jr. Elementary opened as a Pinellas County School in August 2003. Our students have learning opportunities that stimulate their intellectual curiosity, require them to demonstrate they have learned how to learn, and enable them to become productive and effective citizens. The curriculum consists of the highest-quality research based programs delivered by a specially selected and trained teaching force. The school has a staff that has demonstrated a commitment to continuous personal professional learning. This is evident in the commitment to build the school around rigorous national teaching standards. Our teaching staff is National Board trained or has agreed to complete the training or has agreed to their Masters degree training. Sixty percent have a Masters degree or higher. All staff members have high expectations for student success and will work individually and collaboratively to create the optimal conditions that will promote success.
