    "John F. Kennedy High school is a great school for any student! It has extracurricular activities that will give a boost to your child's creative side, and the students will actually like it, because it's fun! Although it isn't the greatest school in the universes, it has a lot to offer. From free tutoring programs, to a study program so that those reporte cards will be great grades... Great just like our school, so hey folks, JFK is the right school for you. -Wanda Gonzalez 9th grader at JFK High"

    "My school is a school that is underrated, its a good school and offers a lot of opportunities to those who want to take advantage of them. I like that its fitting to me as a student, even tho there are many students that are not looking to improve themselves on a scholar way, there are many that do want to become better and have a bright future and to those there are opportunities given to them which they could take to improve themselves. I think my school should improve by getting more learning supplies that other schools have, the students at Kennedy are sometimes disappointed by the mere fact that the materials we have are old and not up to date. for example we don't have wifi that is available for our teachers to use to improve our learning experience. I think it would be a great improvement if we had an update on the things we use daily for learning."

    "Its been interesting reading these comments regarding Kennedy; particularly of interest was a students comments about what a great school Kennedy is; I wish he realized that his comments can't be taken seriously when uses words like "cuz" , "dat", etc. That type of grammar negates your positive comments about the quality of the school, teachers, etc. I'm an alumni of Kennedy -- class of 1973; currently living in Atlanta; I'm glad to see this site exists and allows "old dudes" like me the opportunity to keep abreast of what's happening with the school now. I sincerely hope today's JFK students have an idea of the wonderful legacy that Kennedy has; once upon a time it was one of the most racially diversed / balanced school in the schoold district; it was equally known for its academic achievements as much as for its athletic prowess (football, basketball, track & field, and swimming). David Dansky's forensics teams were among the elite debaters year in and year out. Graduates went on to schools like Cal, Stanford, UC Davis, and of course many of the Cal-State schools."

    "I feel it's necessary to comment on what a reviewer said in his/her comments on April 25, 2008. The "teacher" said that Kennedy is "the worst school he's taught at. "If you send your kid there you're giving them a great disadvantage." This "teacher" mentioned that there were metal detectors at the school "so the admin must think it's safe." Well I have been teaching at K for more than 7 years and I can tell you that there have never been metal detectors. So I don't think this was a real teacher. I can tell you as a real teacher at K that our school does have a lot of challenges. We're in a very economically disadvantaged area. But students can succeed if they want to---some go on to 4 yr colleges and some don't. Either way, their success is determined by their own desire and effort."

    "John F Kennedy High school is a dreadfully awful school. Sending your child to this high school is just giving them a ticket to a life of crime and community college. I can promise you a large percent of the students there will end up in a mcdonalds. I guess when you make friends at JFK you'll never lose those friends cause you know they'll be right next to you working in the back of a burger king."
