    "The pricipal spends her time wandering around or watering plants instead of doing her job. She is incompetent and should be replaced.This used to be a good school, when my children went there, but not any more. They do not teach phonics in kindergarten, but expect a child to be able to read when they start first grade. They will not follow a 504 plan for a child with a learning disorder, or give them extra help. Be prepared to hire a tutor if you want your child learn and have some self esteem."

    "Kennedy is a wonderful school and we've been so happy there. There are always improvements that can be made and as others have said, stronger leadership from the principal is needed. That being said, considering the terrible state that our schools are in and the lack of funding that seems to get worse with each new year, this school does a LOT with very little. Our children's needs are being met in the classroom, there is fantastic parent involvement and there are so many extra activities for the kids and families to attend. We were worried when we first entered the public school system, but have been more that satisfied and happy with our experience with Kennedy."
