I absolutely loved my time at Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. The teachers at this school are motivated to help you and continually assist you when you struggle with any subject. Additionally, because the school is located in times square, most of the students are all over NYC! You will not be disappointed by the academics here.

I extremely regret not transferring when I had the chance. Students are definitely not performing where they should be in respect to their grade level. This is due to passing grades being handed out despite a student not putting in the effort and work. As a senior headed off to college in less than a year, I am disgusted by my peer's inability to recognize MLA format and produce coherent essays. If you are seeking a valuable education and a cohort of motivated students who genuinely want to learn, DO NOT COME HERE!
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis High School is like any regular high school. The teachers and staff have to be the best part of the school experience because they're all extremely helpful and genuinely care about their students. It is easy to make friends since it's such a small school. It is located in the middle of Times Square so there is always something to do in the area. The school offers many great opportunities to its students, and there are endless things to do including dance, National Honors Society, Video Game Club, Virtual Enterprise, Smash Arts in partnership with the Roundabout Theater, Basketball, Table Tennis and Volleyball teams, plus the various Advanced Placement courses they offer. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis gives equal opportunities to all of its students and that is why I think it is a great school.
