Kennedy is a good school but they lack an engineering program. Kennedy's partner school Jefferson has an amazing engineering program that offers a bunch of college credit. Kennedy needs to beef up there engineering program to get a better score from me.

Has a EXCELLENT music program. Happiness Inc, the varsity show choir, was ranked in the top 30 show choirs in the nation and has consitently, except for one expection, made finals at every compition. The marching band is the 2nd best in the metro area. If you want a school with a great music and acedemic program, Kennedy is the only choice

JFK is an awesome high school and the teachers go above and beyond what is expected. I have 2 children who really enjoy school. There is an excellent communication between teacher/student and teacher/parents.

I am a 2006 Kennedy graduate and I think that the level of academics at Kennedy is amazing, as well as the reliability and knowledge the staff holds. Kennedy has an enormous performing arts department with choir, show choir, orchestra, symphony orchestra, several band programs, and a well proclaimed theatre department. Parents are very involved with the activities at Kennedy and participate in fund-raising, helping with performances, athletic events and participating in mid-term conferences with teachers. Teachers send out periodic grade reports to parents to let them know how their student is progressing.

Kennedy High School is a very nice school to attend. It has many clubs, sports, and various other activities for students to participate in. There are many AP classes for students to enrole in and the teachers are great here at Kennedy.
