From an extracurricular and academic perspective, the school certainly accomplishes what it sets out to do reasonably well. However, I would not advise black parents(or other POC in general) to send their children here. The administration fails to facilitate an environment of racial tolerance through their inaction, and lack of cooperation. My cousin tells me that other students complain of the same issues, but the problems persist. Parents entrust schools to educate, discipline, and PROTECT their children while they do their best to provide them with a healthy home life. This responsibility is not one taken seriously at Kennedy Middle School. Rather than foster a community of tolerance, they perpetuate division. Given their refusal to appropriately address these instances of racism and bullying, it seems clear that students who attend this school will be robbed of the cultivation of mind, body and spirit that any self-respecting parent desires for their child.

Strong and challenging curriculum, with a variety of excellent extracurricular programs available for the students to take advantage of. Motivated and intelligent teaching staff, who are quick to respond to any issues via conference with the entire teaching staff for the student.

We were really disappointed in the support we received at this school. We were new to the community and my daughter struggled socially in 5th grade. The guidance counselor set up a "lunch bunch" that met 1x/6 days but other than that she was sitting alone in the cafeteria. The kids were rude to her, not all that friendly. Teachers didn't seem to have time or interest in helping her adjust. Homework here was about 30 minutes or less each night. No support from school psychologist because our daughter doesn't have an IEP.
