Very disappointed in this school. With the constant lice outbreaks, the fact people come and go as they please without signing in, and now two gas leaks in one school year. The principal don't seem to care about the children and is more in turned to the early childhood children. I've talked to many kids there who say she's scary. To top it off, they claim to address bully issues. Yet they see it happen and doing nothing. Worst School Ever!!! Better to transfer you child.
Mr. Avery the principal just rocks, he is very firm with the children, Miss Angie and Miss Becky run that office just wonderful and Mrs. Curnes is good as well....
The teachers and Principle especially have a lot to learn about Respect! The children that attend Kennedy come from low-income families. The staff at Kennedy have alot to learn about social skills and how to treat others. I am dissappointed and saddened at the way some of the kids have been treated
I rate this Kennedy Elementary School a 5. This is an excellant school. They have the best teachers I have ever met! Also I fell safe leaveing my children in there hands. I know they are getting the best education in Lawrence!
