"It takes a village and Brothers United is about uplifting our young men and providing them with opportunities to grow and learn from leaders throughout the Richmond community,” said Superintendent Jason Kamras. “We are thankful for everyone who has sponsored a student experience and volunteered their time and expertise to be a positive role model in the life of our students."
“Preschool children are naturally curious about the world around them, so their curiosity provides the basis for understanding and using science processes and practices,” said Dr. Johnnye Massenburg-Johnson, Preschool Manager.
“It’s been a tremendous honor to coach these young men for the past four years,” said John Marshall’s Head Basketball Coach, Tytrail White. “They both started on the varsity team as freshmen and led the team to the state tournament in each of those years.”

“It is a truly an honor just to be nominated for the R.E.B. award because it reflects your colleagues and the system’s admiration for the work that you do,” said Superintendent Jason Kamras. “It’s clear that both of you have made a profound and incredibly positive impact at your schools and here in Richmond.”
I want to take this opportunity to welcome our students and staff back to “The Strong” for another wonderful school year. We are so proud of our students accomplishments this past school year and look forward to many more accomplishments and accolades. To name a few: Accredited with Conditions, 36 Top Scholars with 8 million dollars in scholarship money, one student with 1 million dollars in scholarship money, one student receiving an Associate’s Degree (first at Armstrong), and four State Championships in Track & Field.
Our goal is to ensure that every child is happy and successful at Armstrong where we believe that all stakeholders play a key role in the success of children. We want to encourage our community and parents to continue to support our students, teaching students that education is the avenue for unlocking their dreams. The child who knows that his/her school family is interested and supports the school programs will almost always have fewer problems in school and will enjoy greater success.
The lines of communication remain open and we are readily available for assistance to ensure optimum success for students. The Armstrong culture and climate improves daily where we continuously echo the pursuit for greatness which involves sincere effort, a humble heart, and the desire to improve others which can raise the station of an ordinary individual into one of extraordinary achievement.
Again, we welcome you to the 2018-2019 academic year of Armstrong High School where, “Greatness is the Rightful Destiny of Every Person.”
Dr. Willie J. Bell, Jr., Principal
