Mrs. Andrea Gunns, Principal

Dear North Fort Myers Academy for the Arts Families,


Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at North Fort Myers Academy for the Arts (NFMAA).  My name is Mrs. Andrea Gunns and I am honored to have been selected as the new Principal of North Fort Myers Academy for the Arts. I am very fortunate to have been an Assistant Principal at North Ft. Myers Academy for the Arts for the past 4 years and Assistant Principal at Veterans Park Academy for the Arts for 1 year. Over the past 32 years, I have worked as an administrator and teacher in Pennsylvania and Florida, however my most important role is to advocate for our children.  It is very important to me to work together with all of our NFMAA Families, Teachers, Staff and Community to ensure our students’ success.  I am very excited to be leading the NFMAA Family!

As we work through the Covid-19 Pandemic and follow the Lee County School District’s plan, we will inform you on updates as information becomes available.

Throughout the past school years, the Administration and Staff have three major initiatives we have been working on and will continue for the 2020-2021 school year.  Each of the three initiatives are critical for the continued success of NFMAA.

Great Success at NFMAA – NFMAA has a rich tradition of excellence in academics and the arts. I am looking forward to continually working with you to striving for excellence and keep all of the wonderful traditions. My goal is to remain constant with the wonderful culture and family atmosphere.  It is very important to me to have a positive manner at NFMAA as we have always had.

Academics – Academics are a critical component to any school – it is my belief at NFMAA that every child should receive the best education possible. Our goal is to ensure that every student receives a quality education for the continued success of all students.

School Safety - It is the District’s goal and my goal to ensure the safety and security of all stakeholders. These includes ensuring a safe environment for our students.  My (our) main priority is the well-being and safety of your child.

Arts - We will continue to provide multiple opportunities in the Arts for students to expand their interests and talents.  This year we will utilize a New Black Box Theatre that will allow smaller performances with our K-8th grade students.

Once again, I would like to express how excited I am to be the Principal at NFMAA. This is going to be a great 2020-2021 school year!  We are looking forward to working alongside you and your family all to ensure the continued success of your child during this school year!
