    I have 2 sons who go to JFK. One receives special education. My experience at this school has been outstanding. I could not ask for a better special education program or teacher! My kids love it there!

    My son has been attending JFK in the last few years and we are very happy about the school. While JFK is the older school in Lakeville the principal and teachers are great and JFK feels like a family. I believe JFK led by the principal is genuinely interested in providing the best to all students. JFK is also very flexible in providing the need for individuals. For example my son is rated very high on all tests and has been allowed to participate in many enrichment programs. While he meets the requirement to jump to higher grade we had good meetings with his teachers to figure out the best mixed plan for him to cover both academic and social needs. When the principal and teachers always make themselves available and listen to/discuss children's need you know this is a great school.
