Well, Kennedy has always been the place for me. In middle school, they helped me through my education gaps and thanks to their small class size I got all the attention I needed for my ADHD and anything I was having trouble with. The teachers there have always been some of the bests I have ever known.

This school is very awesome when it comes to preparing you for the future, and it is a little more strict than other average high schools but I know they are only doing it to prepare us for the future in some type of way, whether it it to show us that sometimes things aren't going to go your way, especially if you don't get a higher education and want to work at a minimum wage job your whole life or pushing us to our limits to prepare us for the real world. Sometimes they don't push us but that's when we have to come in and do it ourselves because they aren't going to have our back our whole life.
My over all experience at my school so far is that it is a small school and every student that has problem with school work can automatically get help by a teacher because that class average is about 20. What makes my school unique is that since my school is small everybody know who your are. If I would to choose to go back to this school again, if I could do it over I would and because this school is so awesome.
