When i first started to go to Kennedy High School, i was scared because it's a big school, and it thought that i would get lost, and not know my way around. The staff and teachers are super helpful. I made friends really fast. They helped me find my way around school and to feel more comfortable. I never saw any bullying at Kennedy, but if there was and administration took it very serious. One thing i would want Kennedy to change would be open lunch because not everyone likes school lunch, and there is a fast food place in front of the school.

My experience was very positive. Kennedy's teachers are not only kind, funny, and memorable but also genuinely caring about my well being as a student and as a person. On top of the hardworking and dedicated teachers, Kennedy's outstanding diversity makes it an environment in which students of any race, religion, or background can thrive and build meaningful relationships.
Kennedy High School has amazing teachers, activities, and sports. The teachers are amazing and care so much for the students. Kennedy may not have the best ranked sports teams, but the players and the coaches especially care greatly about their athletes.
