John F. Kennedy Elementary School Reviews
I'm a very content parent I love the fact that my daughter in first grade had to do a goods and service oral speech based on a favorite business in Mrs. Felix class, that just shows how distinguished this school is. There is nothing wrong with raising the bar of standards for all ethnicities.
Kennedy is a wonderful school. My oldest boy attended Kennedy since it opened in 2002 and graduated last year. My youngest is still attending this school and it a GATE student. Both my boys are getting good grades and learning at a good pace. Both boys have enjoyed every teacher from all grades. We think Mr. Bouton is a wonderful Principal. The school is safe and friendly. The students are pleasant. There is a lot of parent support at this school and kennedy still offers choir, band, and art. Kennedy is a distinguished school which excells in STAR testing scores. Kennedy has the best teachers and staff members.
i think that they hand out way too much homework. my daughter is only in second grade she comes home with a hand full of homework. very disappointing to go to emerson elementary
