11 Parent Reviews for J. F. Kennedy Elementary School

Our child has been going to JFK since kindergarten and is now finishing 4th grade. He has had small (10-15) classes with caring and dedicated teachers. The administration is solid and seem to be working towards a better school for all. Sure there is always a couple disruptive kids in his class each year, ...  Read more

When I worked at this school I was mortified by the bad behavior that was reinforced with positive things such as games and playing. The teachers should learn how to use the Responsive Classroom model. However, I was surprised when I asked a student to line up and he gave me the finger, while his parent ...  Read more

We have two children at this school, and have generally had a positive experience. Every time I have been in my children's classrooms when school is in session, I have seen engaged children, dedicated teachers, and well managed classrooms. We do hear of occasional discipline problems, but they are ...  Read more

Well the school does have its problems, I think that most of the teachers at this school are great. They care for the well-being of my child and do the best with what they have. Based on some other reviews, I venture to guess that many parents now-a-days do not discipline at home. When I go in to ...  Read more

The teachers in this school are great! I cannot, however, speak to the administration. My child has never had problems at this school, thus I have not had to go to the principal to have to solve any issues.

My daughter often comes home from school in tears. When I ask her what happened today, she always has variations of the same problems. Basically, she tells me that she is one of only a couple "good" kids in a classroom of "bad" kids. All day she listens to the teacher have to yell at these students. ...  Read more

Avoid this school if at all possible. Our daughter is enrolled in kindergarten there and the majority of her classmates do not speak English or have behavioral problems. This results in a classroom where the teacher spends all her time trying to keep order instead of teaching. Unfortunately, I can ...  Read more
