    Kennedy was one of the best schools I've ever been to. I graduated there with really high scores and many of my former classmates did to. The teachers and ther principle are great. They care about the students and they want to prepare us for middle school and high school. The school lucnh is terrible though.

    The administration at this school is weak and very negatively affects the quality of education the students receive. It also fails to address the needs of students in terms of physical and emotional safety. The organization is weak and impacts the ability of teachers to do their job well.

    well there teach good here. Parents get really involed as if it was them going here. The teachers are good thinkers too. Always thinking out of the box. It may not seem that good till you get to know it.
