All of our Freshmen (9th Grade students) have a Junior (11th) or Senior (12th) mentor, from the day they start at Kennedy.

This means that our 2015 class of Freshmen, 393 students at the time of this printing, can count on academic assistance from 418 upperclassmen, in addition to our teachers, teacher assistants, guidance counselors and administrators.

We offer Advanced Placement courses, as well as vocational technical skills training.

We are involved in a partnership with Wayne County Community College, so students can earn college credit while still in high school.

100% of our Seniors apply to college, and while advanced academics is encouraged, our Seniors are also exposed to potential careers in the skilled trades and the military.

Today, Kennedy serves over 1000 students in 9 - 12th grades.
