I love the opportunities they give for the medical field especially. Edward M Kennedy helps you get a foot in the door in the medical field. They help you get your CNA license and also connect you with hospital jobs. EMK is very good at finding opportunities.The only thing EMK should become is more organized and even more focus on there students and there needs. Also having more of the college experience style by doing internship that helps you with the major you want to be in, in college and not only the health field. EMK truly is a good school!

What I liked about Edward M. Kennedy is that people can act like themselves and no one would say anything negative. I enjoyed the energy that my class had in order to learn. Edward M. Kennedy was a perfect fit for me because not only is their academics great, but the opportunities they tell students about is outstanding.
Edward M. Kennedy Academy for Health Careers is a good college preparatory school overall . The teachers are very well- around and takes the time and patience to help the students whatever they need inside and outside the school. The school is very diverse and the students are very helpful and respectful among its peers. Its like a little community in both campus. Unfortunately, EMK Academy doesn't have a variety of extracurricular activities and have little support for clubs and other organizations . EMK Academy mission is to have kids Dream. Grow. Excel which I've taken to heart and for my education throughout my 4 years in high school
