    "It was the only "normal" public school I went to. It surprised how nice most of the people were compared to my old school, and the variety of classes they had was also a big plus."

    "There were certain exceptional teachers who had a tremendous impact on my academic development. The campus felt safe and no major danger was ever a concern. However, the dress code enforcement is sexist and I would like to see it become fair and equal."

    "It was a highly academically motivated school, they had great incentives for preforming well on tests. The teachers cared whether or not you did good or bad which made the students acknowledge their potential."

    "I like the diversity in John F. Kennedy High School's student demographic. My peers come from all types of backgrounds and communities, especially since many of them attend through School of Choice. While some teachers are a bit iffy in their style and approaches, my experience with them overall is positive."

    "I transferred from a different middle school to John F. Kennedy HS. I was nervous about making new friends but I found that many students come from various of middle schools within the school district. As a senior, I have taken many classes with different teachers and in general the teachers are very helpful. Although there are teachers that are not as helpful, students may ask for help from any teacher even though they are not in that class. The course variety can be improved. Because there is the IB program, there are not as many AP classes offered for students. Also, regular students are better funded than honors students because they get chromebooks and iPads to use in class. Honors students sometimes have to use textbooks that are over ten years old and are not accurate anymore. For the social aspect, there are plenty of clubs and sports for students to join and they are very inclusive. ASB plans different social events for students to get to know new people and just socialize."
