The principal here at this school does not care for the students. His only goal is to cut experienced teachers and programs that would actually benefit the school.

My neice lost her Mother, my sister, last year. I live out-of-town and have been very concerned about my neice's well-being and how she's been coping. I have heard through other family members that Kennedy's staff has been compassionate and supportive of my sweet neice. This is huge and I thank you.

The school has taken away events and clubs because of so discipline issues last year. This effects even the children with good grades. This should not effect A & B students!

Kennedy High School offers a rigorous academic program in Math, Science and History. It offer students to take accelerated classes such as Scholars, Honors, A.P. and also regular classes. This is a great school but some students do not belong here.
