• Principal Jimbo Jackson is excited to be Principal at Leon County’s ONLY PreK through 8th school! 

    Mr. Jackson believes “Every child that comes to Fort Braden can be guaranteed an appropriate, comprehensive and caring education. I believe Fort Braden has some of the finest students, parents, support staff, and teachers. Our goal is to provide our children with the tools necessary to become life long learners and seek their visions for success in a global society.”

    Mr. Jackson has filled nearly EVERY role possible at Fort Braden through the years. He has been: a student, a parent, instructional aide, Physical Education Teacher, Technology Education Teacher, Reading Teacher, In-School-Suspension Teacher, Dean of Students, Elementary Assistant Principal, Middle School Assistant Principal, and finally PRINCIPAL!

    “The one thing that hasn’t changed in all my years at the FORT is the caring, committed, and family atmosphere unique to our PreK to 8th experience. The relationships built at Fort Braden inspire our students and stakeholders to new levels of excellence, not only in the classroom but also in their personal and professional lives.” - Jimbo Jackson, Principal
