Student, Family, & Faculty Surveys for Our NEASC Accreditation Self-Reflection

In preparation for the upcoming Self-Reflection that Kennedy High School will be completing as part of the NEASC Accreditation process, all students, families, and faculty are encouraged to complete surveys designed to provide the school with important feedback on our work.  We hope to learn more about what is working well for our students and identify areas for growth and improvement.  We ask that parents follow the link below to complete the family survey, as your input and feedback is greatly valued and essential to our accreditation process.  If you print out the final page of the survey thanking you for completing it, write your name on it, and retruen it to the school, we will enter your name in a raffle of a 40" flat screen television.
