My son is very happy and is studying well in Kennedy maintaining a GPA of 3.8 +.Initially I was skeptical about him adjusting given the fact he had been in private school since Elementary until Middle school.But now I am confident and very positive about the School.They have block system which prepares the kids for college, better elective choices thru MROP,great Baseball coaches , teaching staff so far are great .I have no complaints and wish the School continues with more competitive Programs for the kids in the near future, so that Kennedy is not down played.

Walters Jr High - I am the first to admit what a posative experience this school has been for my son. I received mixed comments prior to my son attending for 7th grade. Now that he is at the end of his 8th grade yr; the experience has definately been a 100% turn around. Stay in communication w/your child, the teachers/principal and you will be surprised what a positive experience your child has at any school.

Kennedy is the worst school is the area,its only rival is walters Jr.High. It's sad because there are some really good elementary schools in the area but by the time the kids get through JFK they are lost.I have a daughter at JFK and a son at walters and I actually feel bad that I cant move.These schools need to be smitted.If you have any hope of playing sports dont go here unless you like to get crushed every game. Your only win of the year will be against Mission.

Kennedy has good opportunities for those who want to learn. There are plenty of AP classes to choose from.

I am proud that my daughter is studying in this Great School, where she got Spanish AP 3.0 and now taking AP Biology and I met with Teachers they are so helpful and want to change the world. I wish every student a great success in life.

I transferred to Kennedy in my Sophomore year from Homestead High in Cupertino. I graduated in 2004, so it's been awhile and my review is only for my time at Kennedy. Students here don't seem to care much about their future. Although I still graduated with an above 3.0 average, I know I could have done much better. I had a 4.0 GPA before I transferred here. I'm not saying everything is the school's fault, of course a lot of it has to do with myself. Like many teenagers, I didn't know any better. I only cared enough to get grades better than my friends. At my old school, everyone was competitive, it would look bad if I didn't get a 4.0. Believe it or not, my previous high school was MUCH harder than Kennedy. Students here just don't care. It brings down the environment of other students. As for the teachers, I didn't have many that were very authoritative. Like some of the other reviews said, the students ran the class rooms. By the way, there's a location across the street from the school where students openly smoked weed. I hope they have taken care of that problem, but for the 3 years I was there, nothing was done & I'm sure the school knew about it. It was hard to miss.

I am a junior at Kennedy High School and have a 4.0 GPA. We accept every student for who they are. I highly disagree with any parent or student that thinks poorly of our school. The teachers here are very understanding and if we need help they're always willing to take their time to help us.

You have to have been going to this school for a long time to think highly of it. I was the new kid and was by myself most the time at lunch and never talked to anyone in class because they seemed so snotty. The counselor that I had was really awkward. It just overall made me uncomfortable.

I would like to see more involvement between the school/teachers and parents. I would also like to see the school doing more projects to help the community.


Posted May 4, 2010

I transferred to this school for my sophomore year, and then I went back to my old school. I learned virtually nothing here; the teachers were scared of the kids, and the kids KNEW it. The teachers sat back and let the kids run the room. Sure, it was fun, but I'll pay for it later when I have to go to college!

I hate this school, it seems that they have some sort of idea to jump or pick on or make the new student feel un-wanted. If you were to put your child in this school dont put them in the middle of the year.

It's not necessarily the teachers that are bad, it's the environment. You're surrounded by kids who generally don't care about their grades or about where they'll go after high school. And sports? We get last or next to last place in almost every single sport. I have friends in Walters, they do not want to play sports at Kennedy because most of our teams do not have winning records.

I have to disagree with the parent that thinks Kennedy H S influenced in her son's thinking. I went to Kennedy in the 70's; graduated with 3.4 gpa. My sons graduated 1999,2000 also with a gpa above 3.0. Now my daughters are graduating this year with a gpa above 3.2 they all have been honors students, We all have participated in sports. Above all this. I just want to say that Kennedy is been a great school for my family and friends. Kennedy is a small school with a great diversity of choices that prepares you for College. You just have to get involved.

Speaking for the many students living in this attendance area who transferred to Irvington, I can definitely say that this isn't the place to be if you can help it. I left after my freshman year and am currently a sophomore at Irvington.

i have to disagree with the parent below me, 2 of my grandchildren graduated from kennedy and are playing college basketball and are getting 3.00 gpa in college my grandson is graduating this year, since my grandchildren have been there they have done sports up to there ears, both my granddaughters have been in leadership and its non stop SAT talk to prep the students and aslo they promoted shirts for STAR testing, i think you need to open up and get invovled a little to see how great this school is

The school environment has influensed my son's thinking more or less. He was USA Swimming Champion. Since the time he moved to Fremont and enrolled Kennedy High, he stopped swimming, did very poorly in school. The school does not promote sport, SAT test, and STAR test. Couselor does not help students to select appropriate courses. I hope the best for my son.

I love the diversity of Kennedy. It's not like many other schools where it's practically the same people wherever you look. Everyone can fit in with anyone. And the teachers are really awesome too.

This is the best high school to have ever been established. Students get a premier academic education, but most importantly they grow up to be people. These students are not machines that simply recite memorized text book entries. The pupils of John F. Kennedy High School encounter normal problems and develop normal and casual social relationships with among others. Despite common misconceptions, the environment is incomparable to that of other schools. Kennedy has a very receptive atmosphere and there is a place for everyone, regardless of ones interests. I am here to affirm that this is a great high school that allows its students excellent opportunities for their future.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
