    "When I began at Kennedy high school I was in the rigorous IB MYP program. Not being from the neighborhood my high school is in, I did not know what to expect. To my delight, it was very welcoming and diverse. There are so many clubs and activities that anyone can fit in. I transitioned from IB to DP easily with the constant support from my teachers. The teachers at this school are phenomenal, they truly care about the students and their success. Thanks to them and all of the preparing they do from quizzes to websites, I honestly feel prepared for college. Just like any other school, Kennedy has its cons, lack of bathrooms and poor school lunches. Looking back at the years I spent at Kennedy, I would not trade it to go to any other school."

    "The school overall could make improvements in the aspect of education, policies, and diversity. There's teachers and faculty members that genuinely care about the students on both professional and personal aspects, while there's others that are clearly only there from nine to five. The school needs to tighten up and have higher goals for itself and the student bodies academic growth."

    "I honestly had one of the best high school experiences at Kennedy. I met friends who will last a lifetime, as well as the love of my life. Most importantly I made great connections with the teachers. The faculty and staff at Kennedy are some of the greatest people you will ever meet, they continuously encourage you to do your best and make sure that you do. Kennedy has had the past three years of record breaking ACT scores throughout Kennedys history, as well as, the amount of scholarship money raised."

    "Kennedy High School is a great place, with good academics, and friendly people. Most teachers are kind and get their point across strongly. The only thing that should possibly change is getting nicer security staff. Overall, Kennedy is a good school."
