Academic Achievements


Over the years, Jessie Ripoll has displayed excellence in the academics as well as the performing arts especially in the field of dance, speech and music. For the past four years, the school has won several gold and silver medals annually in various categories of dance ranging from traditional to contemporary at the Parish and Regional levels.

The Music Department has distinguished itself by winning a series of outstanding performance awards at the regional and national levels.

The school's dance troupe and musical ensemble have become staple performers in many of corporate Jamaica's functions.

The students excel academically in all the curriculum areas. This is evidenced by the outstanding GSAT & GFLT/GAIN performances. We have excelled in the JIS Heritage Essay competition as well as the Lay Magistrates Essay competition.

The school has produced two Rhodes Scholars - Richard Thompson and Kim-Marie Spence. The students are also fearless competitors in sports.

They have made lasting impressions on their competitors in the areas of football, netball, basketball and rugby. Many awards for chess, karate, swimming & athletics have been garnered. Our performance in cricket is improving. Although few awards have been won in this discipline, the students believe in the school's motto Ever to Excel and will not go down without a fight.

Jessie Ripoll Primary has also made its mark in the Junior Schools' Challenge Quiz, other quiz shows and debating competitions.
