I’ve had 4 children go through this school, if you can afford private sch or a charter sch is an option for your child- do it. The building is in bad shape, lack of resources, burned out teachers, the special education resources are incredibly lacking, IEP meetings were always awful and I was continually mortified how brash and condescending the spec ed teacher was, some well meaning VP’s, but overall has been a very bad experience. I’m not alone in this, I’ve personally heard many experiences from other parents and it’s very disheartening. We will be moving out of district to avoid having to return to this school. (Major lack of qualified and appropriate sports/extracurricular coaches as well. It’s a total joke).

This school has a problem with staff bullying to a child with disabilities and the school not doing anything about it. On top of this they make choices about your child without you involved. I would not recommend this whole town for any special needs child. They lie about what goes on behind closed doors and because your child is a special needs child they seem to be able to get away with it.

JFK has just been selected for a national award...one of the top six nationwide for middle school! On June 24th six of our students will accompany teachers and administrators to the Bonstingl National Conference to be awarded this prestigious award. JFK has a dedicated staff who are succeeding in presenting solid, creative, and technologically advanced lessons to prepare each student for their success in the high school as a lifelong learner and compassionate citizen. We rock and are always looking for ways to improve!

Kennedy Middle School is the community's rising star. Teachers exhibit quality and care for the students. Parents are encouraged to take part in their child's experiences in such a critical stage of adolescence. HOWEVER, I do feel that the town does an injustice to its students and children in cramming 6th, 7th, and 8th graders in a small, outdated facility. Ideally, this this town should have TWO middle schools and one high school, not the opposite, current dynamic). Our school system is the only one with its current unusual setup, though it seems that this situation is changing with reorganization. Anyway, my children had a wonderful experience at Kennedy and became great scholars! Like many of our school facilities, Kennedy also needs a total gut and renovation (or addition if the town chooses to remain with one middle school). Principal leadership was strong and with direction. Like many middle schools, there are instances of cliques and social class standing within the student body. Overall, I can only talk about my experiences with this school, but keep in mind that the community is going through lots of changes.
