John F Kennedy Elementary School 4

our children have been in the Brewster school system and everything starts at JFK. The staff is fully engaged and their number one priority is to make sure all students have an equal and fair opportunity to learn. This is the best school around in the lower Hudson valley.

We have 2 children, one has been through JFK and the other is finishing their final year. They finally began offering full day kindergarten which was a huge plus for families with young kids and working parents. The level of education is superior for Putnam County. The administration and teachers are hands on and make sure that every child has the chance to excel. And the classroom experiences are so profound, our kids come home talking about their days!

It's a part of the schools mission statement. It's a great environment for kids of all genders and race to learn in.

The schools integrate all children no matter what learning level, into specials, gym, recess, and lunch. Classes and sometimes an entire grade get together once a week for collaborative learning and events.

They have many anti bullying and honesty programs starting from K-12. They integrate all types of children (ethnicity, learning level, disabled) and promote an environment of cceptance and safety. They also have the school SRO (All Putnam county schools pay to have a police officer in each school all year) speak with the kids and do demonstrations based on their age and understanding.
