    I transferred to this school 8th grade year after being at a horrible school in union city nj (Thomas A. Elementary). It was an amazing change! I learned more I was finally on honor roll for the first time in years and I was excited to go to school. The teachers are great! They help whenever you need them and most if not all of them don't mine staying after school hours to help you. The class sizes are small enough so you can get individual help if needed. The extracurriculars are awesome! I was in chorus student council and safety patrol but they offer so many clubs. Your child will definitely find one they enjoy. This is probably the best school I have ever been to. I recommend all parents to enroll their kids in this school.

    I feel that Kennedy School is excellent! Both my sons have had excellent teachers! My oldest is in 6th Grade and his Teacher is wonderful. My youngest son is in Kindergarten and I was surprised at how much he learned this year. His teacher is also wonderful. I am very happy with Kennedy School both the Principal and Vice- Principal are very involved and really care about the children. They are always available to discuss any problems. I also want to mention the office staff they are all very nice and extremely helpful. I Give Kennedy School an A+
