I asked Ms Davis (principal); 'What makes Unity Preparatory School unique? What is so special about this prep school in Montego Bay?".

Her immediate (and proud) response: "Our academic excellence! We have past students all over the world now, three of who are doctors at Cornwall Regional Hospital as I speak!"

And from all indications, she has good reason to be so confident about Unity Prep School.

In a few seconds, I'll share with you a bit about this little oasis in the city of Montego Bay.

The History


Unity Early Childhood and Preparatory school was established in 1982 with four students, three girls and one boy. In less than twelve months the population grew to 125 students. The school was registered with the Ministry of Education in 1982.

Ms. Rosemarie Porter and Marlene Numbdarkhon (then) took on the task of training these impressionable young minds. Rapid growth continued which attracted four trained teachers. Three additional open air classrooms and a rented facility next door were added to facilitate the growth.

After numerous attempts to purchase properties, with the help of Mr. Paul Sloley, and the expertise of engineer and architect, Mr. Flowers and Mr. Merchant, the original building was reinforced and two upper floors were added. 

Unity Preparatory School finally had a home!

The vision continued and 2008 gave birth to a new location, 16 Coke Avenue, Brandon Hill!

A well designed, beautiful and impressive building stands on the hill overlooking Montego Bay. "A Dream Come True"!

The school on the hill away from the hustle and bustle enjoys the gentle caresses of tranquil breeze passing through the leaves and touching our cheeks. The ambiance is clean, spacious and conducive to learning.

Ms Pearl Davis is the founder and principal of this noble institution. Her background and former training as a registered nurse and an ordained minister qualifies her as such.

Ms Davis is Jamaican but she spent much of her life in the USA, employed as a registered Nurse. She then started her ministerial journey in 1976 where she served in Spkane, Washington; Salem Oregan; Salt lake, Utah; Boise Idaho; Montana; Vancouver, British Columbia; Calgory and Edmonto in Alberta.

She returned to Jamaica in 1978, established the Unity Faith Center, which gave birth to this; the Unity Preparatory and Kindergarten which has as its motto "Unity is Strength, Together We Achieve"!
