My 7 year old son is disabled and used to attend Rock Springs Elementary School. He hated it! He was not challanged and they wanted to keep him in special ed classes regardless of his improvement and test scores. The teacher was lazy and the receptionist at the front desk was burnt-out and very rude. Last year we moved and decided to enroll him at Kennedy Elementary. In one year at Kennedy, he started reading, writing, come to find out was amazing at math,and even scored a 104% on the state math test. I thought it was a miracle! It was not a miracle. It was just teachers doing their job. Kennedy is an amazing school with great faculty and my son loves to wake up in the morning to go to school.

Worst kindergarten program ever. They shun parent involvement and haven't a clue about pick-up and drop off procedures.

I have had 3 children go to Kennedy elementary school over the last 20 years. I have had the opportunity to have had my children taught under the following principals Mr. Dixon, Ms. Faulk and now Mr. Edwards. Over the years I have had the opportunity to meet both good and in my opinion not so good teachers. Overall this is one of the best schools here in Kingsport because we are a small, community based, parent involved school with dedicated teachers, parents and of course a dedicated principal.
