FUNTUNFUNEFU-DENKYEMFUNEFU Adinkra Symbol is a part of the cultural symbols of the Asante people of West African in the former kingdom of today’s Côte D’Ivoire. "Siamese crocodiles" is the symbol of democracy and unity.

It takes a village! Please join us in building a strong foundation for the success of our African American Students. 

We believe parent, family, and communities are essential to student success.
