Vision Statement
With new purpose and direction, we embark on an educational journey that focuses on increasing Student Achievement via implementation of curricular innovation while providing educational excellence for all.
Mission Statement
It is the mission of John F. Kennedy Middle School staff, students, parents and community to create an instructional environment which enhances individual achievement while promoting the development of responsible citizens who can efficiently access knowledge, critically assess problems and creatively seek solutions.

Born on May 29, 1917, in Brookline, Massachusetts, John F. Kennedy served in both the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate before becoming the 35th president in 1961. As president, Kennedy faced a number of foreign crises, especially in Cuba and Berlin, but managed to secure such achievements as the Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty and the Alliance for Progress. On November 22, 1963, Kennedy was assassinated while riding in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas.
