I live in a blue ribbon public school district, but decided to send my children to Kennedy for the specialized attention and holistic approach they take towards not only education, but personal growth of the student as well. My daughter and son could not be more different in interests and personalities. My daughter is outgoing, skilled in science and math and enjoys playing sports, while my son tends to be more quiet and reserved, excelling in arts and humanities. We had the pleasure of watching them build on their interests and blossom during their time at Kennedy in very different ways. Even though their paths were quite different, they both made excellent friends, strengthened healthy core values, and went on to be accepted at some of the most prestigious universities on the East coast thanks to the rigorous academics they became accustomed to at Kennedy. As parents, we could not be happier with the choice we made in sending our children to this excellent school. 5 Stars!

My experience at John F. Kennedy Catholic High School has been, so far, very good. The academics at this school are very good and the teachers try and teach you the best they can and want to see their students succeed. The diversity is a little low, as I am Hispanic myself, but everyone for the most part is treated equally. College readiness is extremely well! Kennedy prepares everyone for college with the opportunity of Honors and AP classes you can take. Every student is required to take at least one AP class, if eligible, their senior year. In my opinion, I think Kennedy is great school!
Kennedy Catholic High School was a...polarizing experience to say the least. It's good, but sometimes is a bit off the mark of that.Kennedy has some good staff, a majority of their teachers are friendly, invested, and good at their jobs. They also have a good quantity of extracurricular events and activities, like clubs, sports, and class events. My personal favorite was the Smash Brother's tournament they hosted my Senior Year. But the cons are major. 1. The rules enforcement in the school falls into two extremes, rules are either enforced to the point of it almost being harassment, or they are ignored. Also, the uniform rules are strict to an unnecessary degree, to the point of students freezing in class.The school also has a very strict and oppressive culture, with a high amount of anxiety, stress, oppression of/in their students.Should the overbearing enforcement of rules be fixed, Kennedy would be a great school!
