Helping kids grow into healthy, whole, caring people who know how to use their minds well is surely the most important, rewarding work in the world.
Our reputation is not only strong in our area but throughout the state of Oregon. Kennedy Middle School was designated as an Outstanding School by the Oregon Department of Education.
We, our students, staff, parents and community members, partner together to provide a learning environment we can all be proud of. Here at Kennedy Middle School we believe all students need a strong foundation in basic academic skills.
Curiosity, eagerness to learn, capability for self-direction, and self-confidence to preserve, to create and make good decisions are equally essential to the learning process we value at Kennedy Middle School. We strive to provide an education, which carefully balances academic, social, physical and aesthetic growth.
