    My daughters have attended this school for the past 7 years now. It is an amazing school. The principal the teachers everyone is involved in making sure the children have a positive creative and challenging learning experience at a level you usually have to pay private school prices for. This is a gem of a school.

    The teachers at Kennedy truly care about the students. I believe we have the best teachers in the county led by the best principal. They push both of my children to the height of their academic ability. At the same time the Monetessori curriculum ensures no children are ever behind or slip through the cracks. The PTA is great and sponsors so many wonderful activities in which we always have a great parent turnout and involvement. All in all I believe Kennedy is the best choice for my kids and I love my JFK family.

    Kennedy is a school that cares about the student's entire being. Not just education but about the student's lifestyle and what they have to face on a daily basis.

    Kennedy is great school! The teachers and Principal are wonderful. I love that parent involvement is encouraged. The teachers have high expectations from the children and allow them to trully grow at their own pace. The diverse nature of the student population only aides in overall experience at this exceptional school. My children have progressed exceptionally well here. I would recommend this school to anyone. The Montessori approach is a positive environment and only helps aides in development and encouragement of our bright little ones.
