I hate this school I am currently a student at Kennedy and honestly I hate it I come home everyday and cry myself to sleep....the teachers are amazing but the students honestly are ummm how can I put this bad, rude and horrible kids.

This is a great school, with an excellent Principal and Vice Principal. They love kids and teach them more than the 3 R's. They teach kids about discipline and respect. They have high expectations for kids and take parent concerns seriously. Only prob. is not enough parent communication.

Kennedy is a great school for my daughter. PRIDE is a fantastic concept and she really enjoys it a lot. The teachers are all very friendly.

I am going to be a freshman this year and I will miss Kennedy very much! It was a great school and all of the teachers are helpful and nice. When you get to 8th grade you HAVE to go on StarQuest! Mrs. Yess is the best teacher at Kennedy. :) Good Luck it's a great school.

Kennedy middle school was a great school, even though I was in detention alot I really enjoyed my 3 years at kennedy. Mr Metzger was a great teacher And so were all of the teachers at kennedy. I'm a freshman now and hope other people can relate to my good experience at Kennedy.

I was a former student to this school. I really enjoyed it. I just hope the teachers I had are still working there. Especially Mr. Belonger. He was the coolest. - Russell Parry, Former student, Now a senior.

The OAKS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Oregon.
