    people in the office are wonderful.the principal is not a nice person she is rude. i was dropping my son of in first grade and she was in there telling all the parents to get out but it was done in a rude way there was a white lady cleaning out a lunch box and she was following her around and putting her hands up blocking her telling you could tell the lady was doing something and trying to leave but that principal was really upsetting to the parents ..they need to do something about her.i was upset for the poor white lady myself.wondering if she was being like that cause she is the only white parent. interesting. if i was her i would file a complant..every one is wonderful but that principal...

    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.
