Dr. Stamper then joined the Atlanta Public School System to serve as the Academy Leader for the Center for Engineering and Applied Technology at Frederick Douglass High School.

In December of 2019, Dr. Stamper was named principal of Banneker High School in College Park, GA. He was extremely excited about leading Banneker High School and the community to even greater heights as he had been a vital part of the community for the past five years as principal of Woodland Middle School, Banneker High School’s primary feeder school. Since this time, Dr. Stamper has led Banneker High School to unprecedented heights. Even amid the pandemic and less than ideal academic conditions, Banneker High School’s graduation rate has increased by 5.8% over the last two years to reach 82.8%, the highest in school history. Relationships and culture have always stood at the bedrock of Dr. Stamper’s success as a leader. Each year he has established a culture of high expectations as well as meaningful and boundless relationships with all stakeholders, both internal and external. The community has always been a true partner with him in this work.
On a personal note, His wife, Richele Stamper, is also an educator and their three children, Jasmyn, Jada, and Jason Jr. are all products of the Fulton County School System.
