My son went to this school for just about 1 year before I moved and yanked him out. My child is a military son, therefore the school made money just by having him there. From the 1st day of 6th grade there were issues. There were fights at the bus stop and on the bus, the bully's on the bus and in the school were just allowed to act like idiots. My complaints went ignored. My child was told to suck it up. The school did not honor their commitments to the children or to the parents! I believe that the principals unfairly handled every situation placed in front of them. This was extremely unfair for the children who did try and attended everyday, and for the teachers who actually tried, but had to deal with unruly/ criminal children.
I think that John F. Kennedy @ Marshall is a good school. But they have a lot of striked rules there. My daughter goes there, she said that she doesn't like having to tuck in her shirt all the time. I have been there once with my child and. But on the other hand it can be a good school for our children
