Kennedy Charter Public School is filled with dedicated teachers and administrators who care deeply for the students they serve AND provide the kind of expert, individualized academic attention that you won't find at larger, more institutionalized schools. The collaboration now underway with Johnson C. Smith University--which includes relocating to the JCSU campus to start the 2014-2015 school year--will give Kennedy Charter's students access to university facilities and resources. What an amazing opportunity for parents who want their children to get more personal academic attention and exposure to higher learning!
Kennedy Charter School, located in Charlotte, NC, is a home school community. The main attraction for us initially was the small class sizes and friendly staff. My daughter attended a large public middle school. She was lost, a minnow in a shark tank! Expected to be an independent student with little help from staff due to overcrowded classrooms, she coped at best by shutting down into daydreaming mode. Her grades didn't reflect what she was capable of achieving. The staff expected every student to have the same level of independence and maturity. Afraid to send my daughter to a high school four times the size of her middle school, Kennedy Charter was my first and only choice for her to finish high school. 9th graders attended "Summer Bridge" for six weeks. This awesome program introduces students to the school as well as taking students on field trips to local colleges. My child has completed a successful year at Kennedy Charter, making the A/B Honor roll for the first time ever. I'm grateful to staff and students working with my child's special needs and talent development. She's matured socially, academically and LIKES SCHOOL as she now prepares for tenth grade.
My experience at Kennedy Charter has been good. I am able to learn better because of the class sizes. If there were 25 to 30 students to each classroom I don't think I would be able to achieve the grades that I have. Also, this allows the teachers to be closer to the students. Making the learning experience more fun and enjoyable.

Kennedy Charter Public School is truly an awesome place for both students and staff. It is nothing short of an honor to work for and serve the students of KCPS. Never have I been in an academic environment as nurturing and structured as the one we have worked tirelessly to both develop and maintain.
