John F. Kennedy Catholic High School Reviews

All of our children have attended KCHS. One is a current student while the others are now in college. Kennedy has/is preparing our children for life beyond HS. So much more than in grades, their confidence is beyond measure. Their understanding of service to others and their desire to help others and to be involved in their community makes us so proud. The atmosphere and culture Kenedy fosters and encourages this type of servant leadership among its students. The teachers and administrators are wonderful and talented people and have had our children's best interest in mind all along. Thank You!

JFKCHS is an amazing high school that in every aspect succeeds in preparing students for college. Teachers always available to help, tutors on campus several days a week, friendly faculty to solve any worries... everything is presented for each and every student to succeed as long as the work and time are put in. This is a paperless school (tablet-run) which for some may be a drawback, but once used to the system you’ll be right on track. The only drawback with this system in my experience has been the tempting act of going off topic and doing another task on one’s iPad, but if you stay focused and determined to succeed, this shouldn’t be a problem for you!
We are so happy our children chose to attend Kennedy. We found a friendly and happy home here. The friends we made and the friends our children make are wonderful. This school is so much more than classes and grades. It's a community. We gather together to celebrate the holidays, (the Christmas Concert is beautiful), accomplishments (National Honor Society, Graduation, Sporting Victories/Championships), and the arts (Spring Musical, Art Show, Film Festival) and of course we celebrate Mass together. Kennedy is a Home!
