John F. Kennedy Middle College High School is the friendliest high school that I know of, compared to some other schools. Everyone including students and staff are always helping each other, no matter the year difference (seniors would help me with things when I was a freshman.) The school is very small with only around 400 students, so everyone is intimate and friendly. The best thing about JFK is that we can take college classes at Norco College CA DURING high school. Not only are the courses cheaper, we can take almost any course. The payoff is that if we work our hardest and take as many courses we can during our high school years, we could get multiple associate degrees by our high school graduation.

The teachers at this school are matched by no other and the opportunity of taking free community college classes is one that should not be passed up. I graduated with 25 college credits that transferred with me! An amazing small school with big opportunities.
As our logo suggests, "Small School, Big Oppurtunity"!! John F Kennedy Middle College High School is a small humble community where everyone knows each other like family! Our connections with Norco College gives us students the advantage to study and be respected as college students.
