    Greetings J.A. Fair Preparatory Parents:

    Hello, J. A. Fair War Eagle families! I am Principal Melinda Modica.  I would like to take the time to introduce myself to you and tell you about all of the amazing things students will engage in next year at J. A. Fair Preparatory School.

    I am currently the proud principal of Dodd Elementary School. I grew up in the small town of Smackover, Arkansas.  After graduation, I went to Henderson State University where I received a Bachelor of Science in Education.  I have worked for the Little Rock School District for 17 years with five years in administration.   I  have been a Reading Teacher, School Improvement Specialist, as well as a Literacy Instructional Facilitator.  I furthered my education at Harding University where I obtained a Master of Science in Education. 

    My vision for the school is to prepare students to be college and career ready through real world experiences.  Students at JA. Preparatory School will experience Science, Technology, Engineering and Math applications through a hands on based approach to learning.  Students will also develop socially and emotionally while learning how to embody Steven Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People which will empower them to take ownership of their own learning. I am excited to share that students at J.A. Fair Preparatory School will be able to engage in extracurricular activities and student interest organizations. 

    Thank you for entrusting your child to join my staff and I for an experience of a lifetime during the opening of a new K-8 school, J.A. Fair K-8 Preparatory School, where students will have fun exceling. We look forward to greeting each one of you in the near future using Zoom. 


    Mrs. Modica
