10 Parent Reviews for John F Kennedy Senior High School

I had 3 children graduate from this school and i can positively say that this is the BEST school in all of Cheektowaga.

Pretty good school. It doesn't particularly stand out academically or academically as being great or terrible, but it's smaller than other schools in the district and has good teachers. The administration is very competent but the principal isn't that visible in the building.

The teachers have been great. They have helped both my children to excell and be on the honor roll every quarter. The teachers take time to help any student that needs help. There are many oppertunities for the kids from clubs to sports.

Overall school district is weak. They typically do not follow NYS rules and do their own thing. Most of the parents do not expect their children to do well, and they don't. Weak self centered teachers who earn much more than they are worth. You would be better off sending your child to a buffalo school.

the school is better then when i went there. many improvements made. digital clocks,new sign and track,some rooms carpeted. it is a great school to send your students coming from someone that graduated from there in 2005.
