As a Kennedy Alum, I have to say that you really do not realize how much an education helps until you are out in the world. It was not always fun when I was at Kennedy, but every moment made me who I am today. I am very grateful that I attended the school the electives are amazing. I knew people that left Kennedy to go to public schools and they definitely regret it today. I am a firm believer that it is one of the best schools in this area.
The principal and the school treats football well above all other sports to the point where the other sports are treated like they don't even matter at all. Also the school has a certain group of kids who are the administration favorites and recieve all awards.
I graduated from Warren JFK, my daughter graduated in 2005 and my son is a freshman this year. The principal and all the faulty are well educated caring christian individuals. The school has AP courses, lots of activities and scores of volunteers. This year they awarded $150,000 in financial aid from their donation coffers. The student body is small (about 350 attend in 7-12th), but that hasn't stopped the students from winning millions in academic scholarships and from their sports teams from being the best of the best. Once you join the Kennedy family you're always family. Blue Pride!
After belonging to this school system for many years, we were forced to leave the system due to lack of overall professionalism, organization and trust with safety and discipline measures. In many instances the students were unsupervised for short periods of time. On two other occasions teachers from different religious backgrounds were teaching students about their religion. This reflects low quality scores here.
Our mission is to inspire and support families to champion their children's education - at
school, at home and in their community. We are a national non-profit with offices and programs
in Oakland, Milwaukee, Washington D.C. and Indianapolis.
