Our Mission Statement
Children of today will face a radically different world from the one in which Edison, Ford and Roosevelt were the driving forces.
The 21st century will present new challenges and children must learn to be self-motivated, creative problem solvers, flexible thinkers, effective questioners, multilingual productive team members.
It is the belief of the Kennedy School staff that all children can learn. Working together with parents we will be able to develop programs to educate the whole child. Together we will be able to provide the tools for success in a child's pursuit for learning.
