I graduated from this school in June 2011. For the past week I've been trying to get in contact with someone here but nobody answers the phone. They give me a run around and its very unproffesional ahd childish. When I attended here they would call my house 24/7 saying I wasnt going to school my parents would come in and my Attendance was perfectly fine. This system and this school and the staff itself is horrible. So HAPPY I graduated and dont have to deal with then anymore.

My son is now a senior. The teachers gave me, since my son attended this school, great feedback about what he is learning, when he is absent, and when he is not turning in assisgnments. They are attentive to parent needs, which is what I like most. The principal is the Best! The sports teams rock! Thanks JFK

I am a student at JFK and will be graduateing in june! well, my years in kennedy have been so tramadic and somtimes meanless with all the pressure the staff including teachers and peers, that in many situation leads to failer. I well never trash kennedy HS because, i have recieved a great education so for that made be elgible to get accepted into a great college. If you are determine to learn and work hard, in the process of meeting friends and dealing with drama lol, then you will fit right in at kennedy HS.

The bottom line is that there is no collaboration, parents are treated with little respect, and staff is un professional.

I currently attend John F. Kennedy High School and have been doing so for the past 3 years. When first entering Kennedy the school was in demand for some new improvements but over the years Kennedy has improved quite a lot. There are many activities to join and clubs for a chance to meet new people. The teacher are overall good and the principal is always there when you need him. I would not transfer out of Kennedy for the world.

This school has changed greatly in the past few years. Security is poor and kids can roam the halls, especially the first floor. Teacher morale is poor .The small schools are taking over the building which leads to overcrowded unsafe conditions.

I attended this school from September 2000 to June 2004. the school was bad. there were many security guards but alot were not doing there job. they were to busy fraternizing with the students. i never felt safe at kennedy until the day i left. i would not recommend this school to anyone. i do appreciate the College Now program because if it was not this program i would not have done as well and graduting. Thanks goes out to Mrs. Strutt, Ms Mullings and even Ms. Mitzner.

My daughter just started the 9th grade at H.S. 475. I was very impressed with the security because I know my daughter will be safe. There is a wide variety of x-tra curricular activites at the school. Most importantly my daughter feels comfortable with her teachers and her peers which will enable her to learn.
