    "I would probably not recommend this highschool based on the fact that you're literally in prison. By saying that, I mean you literally have no freedom what so ever, instructors are really bad and kids behave inappropriately. This is coming from my own experience, coming from a small middle school and being denied into PACE for no explainable reason. I had the thought of trying to change my life and get a long with better than average people through the PACE program. What I soon discovered as a freshmen I got in trouble in class for things I didn't do. I can sit there, kids throw food at each other, it lands near someone desk, soon it piles up, and the person close the the desk(me) get in trouble. You have no say in the situation. I've also had too many teachers that will teach a little, if the class get's loud they stop teaching because hey, it's every students fault if your class is loud. Not to mention some teachers are so bad, they can't be fired because they've worked there for over 10 years. I have more stories, i just have a character limit I'm on right now. The principal is great, he understands some teachers have problems. He will help you, if you approach him personally."

    "I am a freshmen in John F Kennedy High school. I have to say that I really enjoy it. The diversity in this school makes it interesting to learn. I have wonderful teachers, who makes learning fun and easy. Overall, it's a great school and I am glad I came here. p.s: it does have its little ups and downs, but which school doesn't have that?"

    "My son graduated in 2012. He was in the PACE program, which did a good job of helping him stay on track for college. He's currently attending a high ranking university on the east coast. Kennedy is an urban school, drawing its diverse student body from a wide variety socioeconomic and racial backgrounds. You have a few students headed for Princeton and a few students headed for prison, with most of them headed somewhere in between. This was a great environment for a taste of "real world" diversity. I would recommend the PACE program. With budget cuts, however, it's incumbent upon parents to fund-raise. So if you aren't willing to chip in to make sure that your students get the resources they need, then twice about coming here."

    "This school has been throughly disappointing. I transferred here from Florida. My old high school was in a good area and was almost like a mini college. You felt more like an adult there than at Kennedy. At Kennedy, you can find some teachers who will stay on task. A majority spend their time talking about personal problems or advice on life. I understand they think they are helping; however, I'd rather be learning about French than how to make a living. I have parents to teach me about life. I also find they try to go on and on about things that have NOTHING to do with the class subject. And if you try to write they yell at you if you tune out their stupid rambling. I'm sorry to those who don't agree. Because this school posses many different programs but for those who actually want to learn...good luck. Because a majority of these teachers don't care if you graduate. They are more concerned on blaming you for being inadequete or to tell you that you simply aren't good enough to pass their class."

    "While the PACE program may be a good program, it does nothing to reach out to struggling underprivileged children who could really use the program to their advantage. I am a graduate of the PACE program, and many teachers are unhappy about the fact that PACE takes the 'cream of the crop' from Kennedy and then seeks more funding from the school. Many PACE students are those from privileged backgrounds that are essentially separated from the general population of the school. Gangs are becoming a bigger problem than the school realizes, and more often incidents are being under reported, since they usually occur outside of the school rather than on campus. The school is filled with lackluster teacher, even within the PACE program. The school lacks substantial leadership that tries to hide the schools problems rather than actually solve them"
