This school is the last remaining true "middle school" in this district. This school offers opportunities for students this age to interact with students from all over the district.

Kennedy is a good 6-8 grade school with a fantastic music program, art and dance classes, and after-school sports and drama. There are many wonderful teachers, and a range of class levels from advanced to special education. The new principal is bringing the school much-deserved good attention for bringing ...  Read more

As a parent I wanted to know why the same group of teachers are chosen for the Grand Canyon and DC trips. It isn't experience as they like to say because one year a new hottie was allowed to go over a more qualified outdoor environmentalist expert who wasn't attractive. Makes me wonder what is going ...  Read more

I am so happy my son is now a Freshman and out of there. If I had to choose a middle school all over again, he certainly would not have gone there. They do call the cops for every little thing. Just ridiculous. Good ridden Mr. Sedar. Now they need to get rid of Ms. Vance. Some teachers just don't have ...  Read more

The administration should ask the police to patrol this school continually. The liberal teachers are not at all qualified, and are protected the unions that are directly responsible for the dumbing down of our students. These liberal teachers fight the administration and support the students who believe ...  Read more

Test Year: 2012
John F. Kennedy Middle School
Redwood City Elementary School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
