What makes the Kennedy School special?

The Kennedy School goal is to provide all students with the academic, social, and emotional experiences to learn and practice the knowledge and skills necessary for future success. We are home to an innovative Makerspace & Innovation Lab for hands-on learning by all Kennedy School students, and the SEEK (Social and Educational Enrichment at Kennedy) and SKIP (Specialized Kennedy Intensive Program) programs. Learn More.

School report card

The Kennedy School regularly reports demographic and student progress data to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). This data is used to develop the annual No Child Left Behind progress report card for the Kennedy School. The 2023 Kennedy School report card is available on the DESE website.
