    I can't say enough good things about the teachers at Kennedy. All of my children love going each day and the teachers create this warm loving yet challenging environment.

    We LOVE Kennedy School! The faculty administration and all staff have created a warm nurturing and positive environment for my children to grow and learn. We recently moved and would not even consider moving to another part of Franklin because we wanted to stay in the Kennedy district. Can't say enough about this special school!

    Great faculty great school!

    Kennedy was 1 of only 187 schools statewide (including charter and high schools) to be named a Commendation School by Gov. Patrick and the State Education Association. The teachers and staff are wonderful. It is not often you come across a principal that knows each child by name. The teachers have the child's best interest at heart and want the kids to succeed.

    The nurse is the best!! The quality of her care is unsurpassed by none!! And smart too!! The Principal is very involved in all the students wellbeing. The teachers are very concerned that all the children are receiving the best education and the education all students deserve no matter what school they go to!

    Kennedy is a wonderful school on many levels. The quailty of education is outstanding but even moreso is the sense of community. The culture at Kennedy is warm and friendly. Parents are very involved and there is certainly a feeling of family throughout the school. I am glad to have my kids there.
