My school is such a great place to be! It's a smaller tight-knit community within itself. Because of this, we as students are closer to eachother as well as get the one-on-one help from teachers if needed. We take great pride in the school and strive to reach above and beyond and occasionally stop to help those that need a little push to get that above and beyond. We remain invloved in extra activities offered by the college and in-school clubs to help plan events, assembalys, cleaning up the campus, etc... The open enviroment and trusting staff help us mature and become more responsible for our thoughts, actions, and especially school work. The credits you get from teh free college courses go on your transcript and the credits you earn there contribute to your highschool credits as well. This school is for kids that want to get ahead in life and have an opportunity to finish their GED before they're in college. Regarding school, coming to JFK was the best decision I had ever made!(:

Administraters have worked out with CIF so kids can participate in sports program withing their assigned home high school within CoronaNorco School district so kids can participate in sports if logistics can be figured out. We are so excited to have such a quality program beyond standard AP and IB programs.

My daughter loves this school... she went to a large HS before, and hated it! She loves the smaller setting. So far I have no complaints.

Nice school great teachers and good environment. But, there is not many fun activities for students like me who came from a larger school and played sports etc. I would only suggest coming to JFK if you are mature and want to get ahead in life.

It has an amazing community environment. All the students and teachers know each other and cooperate well. It is only for students who want to go to school, so everyone is working towards an end. Also, one can take college courses while going to high school for a boost in one's education.

I have more of a freedom to express myself, the school is much smaller than a normal high school, it allows us to take college courses while attending the High school, and many of the students are always involved.

John F. Kennedy is hands down the most compassionate and understanding when it comes to student-teacher relationships. I always get the help I need, and I feel like my teachers really care about me. I love my school, and if I could, I would never go home!! It's like disneyland but with pop quizes.

JFK offers an unique educational environment, where high school students take college classes, and respect is exchanged freely among students and faculty.

What's not to love about JFK? If you're into getting your GED done before you're even in college, JFK is the place to be. But it doesn't end there. At JFK, we're lucky to be taught by the best and brightest. At JFK, you're not just another kid going through the system, another cog in the machine. Here, your teachers know you by name, and take a vested interest in your education. And talk about close-knit; with a student body of approximately 700, JFK is more an educational family than a high school. GO TIMBERWOLVES!!

My school is the best school in all the land! I get to go to an awsome highschool while having the priviledge to take college courses. i could graduate with my AA a week after i get my high school diploma. Students from others school come here for education and want to get away from a school nationalism for sports. We here at JFK focus on the middle man, not the highest nor the lowest. We want the middle 60%. As a school of about 705 students, we take pride in everything we do. Due to recent budget cuts we haven't had the funding for much such as school supplies and extra inprovements toward the school but we hold strong and we pull together to get the job done. Other schools in the area may say that they are the best but i as a leader in the school role can genuinely say we are the best. TO LEGIT TO QUIT BABY!

I am a former student of John.F Kennedy High School. At this school its customary that the teachers treat their students like college students. It s a great school and its on a college campus. Students are allowed and encouranged to take college coures free of charge at the local college, Riverside Community College.
