Wow! What an awesome school & principal. JFK is a Montessori school which truly 'follows the child'. My son has been a student at JFK since pre-school and he is now going into the fourth grade. It is amazing the things he is learning and how he has grown as a student and young man. We drive 40 minutes each way to get to JFK, and would not go anywhere else. With the new student assignment plan on the horizon, I must say that we will continue to attend JFK. There are several schools in my neighborhood, but the education we are receiving at Kennedy far surpasses what we can get down the street. The teachers are knowledgeable, patient and dedicated. The principal knows each child and creates an atmosphere of warmth and acceptance. You can tell that JFK is a special school when you walk into the doors. Highly recommended!
I have a 5th grader and a 2nd grader at this school and I love this school. My 5th grader didn't start here until the 4th grade I pulled her out of another school, which I think that was the best thing I ever done because the teacher staff and the Principal care a lot about the children's education. My 5th grader's teacher recognized my daughter had problems in her math and reading. She talked to me about it and I was never so glad that someone cared. I recommend this school to any parent get on board and register here.
My daughter has been a student at Kennedy going on 4yrs. My son will start his 1st yr in 06/07. I recommend Kennedy to parents who are looking for a family oreinted & dedicated school. Each child is given the opportunity to grow at their own pace. My daughter loves this school, her classmates & her teachers. And anytime we have ever had a problem, the faculty goes above and beyond to resolve any issues.
Let's you say JFK.. This school has been great.. My son was there for 3yrs as well as daughter 4yrs. The teachers,staff and principal have been great. If I needed anything they were there for me in more ways than one. When they first came to the school my children were bust from Valley Station I was really upset but, I have to say it was worth the drive. If I had to do all over again they would be no where else. Thanks JFK for doing such a great job. May God Bless You.
Kennedy Montessori has a strong, caring and committed staff paired with an excellent principal. My child is in primary and has done very well at the school. We have benefited from the excellent communication between the staff and teachers. Although this is a Montessori school, Some elementary classes have a more Montessori approach while others have a more traditional approach. Touring the school and observing the various approaches used by different teachers would be helpful. Diversity of students, good teachers, parental support and an excellent Preschool to Kindergarten Montessori program are some of the hallmarks of Kennedy.
