    Kennedy Elementary School in Winder GA is the best school that I could've ever hoped for. My daughter loves the environment and every staff member is wonderful. The principal takes his time to know every student. I am so happy with this school and I have talked with other parents who feel the same.

    Kennedy Elementary is awesome! The teachers are wonderful always a smile on their faces the principal (Mr. Butcher) actually opens car doors and knows all the kids' names and the facility is clean with a friendly atmosphere.

    Love this school! We are very sad that we are moving and can't take the school with us! .( My daughter attended from K-4th. My son just finished 1st grade. I was so lucky to have Ms. Pittman twice! Congrats on teacher of the year! The principal Mr. Butcher has been great. He is really involved. He always seems to be everywhere! He has earned a lot of respect from the teachers the students and the parents!! I believe that his leadership goes a long way. This school strives for excellence. It deserves a higher score!

    My daughters started going to Kennedy last school year when we bought a house in the school's district. We absolutely love this school. The teachers are really special and the principal is one of a kind They adress my daughters by their first name and they've both received specialized support to help them catch up from a less-than-perfect school district we previously moved out of. This school deserves a perfect score. I cant say enough about how grateful i am for these educators. they've been a real blessing to our family.

    I have 3 children that attend Kennedy.All 3 of them absolutely love going to school and have great things to say about the staff.Having 3 kids in the same school it seems like 1 of them always has something going on and I must say the staff at Kennedy has often gone out of their way to help us keep things straight.All 3 of the kids are in the after school program at Kennedy as well and we could not ask for more.Kennedy is a huge part of our family and we feel that the staff there cares just as much about our children's education safety and happiness as we do. Thanks Kennedy!!

    Kennedy Elementary School is the most loving yet efficient school I have ever been involved with. The amazing staff has given our children the very best education offered in our county and quite possibly our state. I would put our school up against ANY other elementary school in ANY affluent community for the happiest most encouraged and certainly most loved children. KES is a place for every child to grow and earn an excellent education!

    I have 3 children and my youngest is finishing up at Kennedy. All my children have had a awesome experience because of the dedication of the teachers and staff. This school has been transformed from 2000 to the present. I am proud that my children have attended there.
