    Hi I am a parent of a child that attends Kennedy Middle school and my child is in the 6th grade I feel that yes Kennedy is a good school my only main concern is that there should be more parents involved in it meaning whenever there is an event going on they should contact the parent and not send home letters to give to the parent because alot of students do not give it to their parents until the last minute because sometimes they do not want their parents to know what's going on. Also I feel that kids should always get their parents permission to join any activities that are going on at the school and without the parent permission he/she should not be able to sign up. For example my child signed his-self up for a step team that I was not aware of. You tell me!

    My child comes from kippways but rite now goes to kennedy middle i could say that kipp ways is a really good school but can put alot of stress on a child ... Kennedy is known to be a dumb bad school but it really isnt they have a good principal that dont play and he has honestly got the school under control which did take a lot of work but they both are good schools

    Some people think thta Kennedy is rthe worse school ever. Its not that the students are horrible its there surroundings that cause the children to act the way they act. Mojority of the students are very smart and intelligent and some students are just horrible.
