A top priority to us is building relationships with students and families as we navigate middle school years.  We strive to provide an environment that all students can learn and grow in safely.  An environment of respect and appreciation of others is important to all of us.  Kennedy Middle School is committed to preparing our students for what comes next both, academically and socially.
