Our District's Mission

RCSD creates a safe and supportive, inspirational and rigorous, joyful and inclusive environment for all learners

Meet Kennedy

With a commitment to excellence, Kennedy Middle School engages, encourages, and empowers students in challenging and creative learning opportunities while preparing them for their futures in high school and beyond.

San Mateo County Education Leaders Take Note of RCSD’s Work to Guide Newcomer Students

The Kennedy Middle School Newcomer Academy serves students in grades 6-8 who are born outside the United States, have been in the United States school system for less than two years, and are identified as English Learners. This innovative program recognizes the diverse needs of students and their families while providing immersive core subject studies with grade level peers coupled with social and educational support. 

Choose Kennedy

As a school consisting only of grades 6-8, Kennedy provides a haven for middle schoolers to learn in a safe environment and become comfortable with themselves as they transition from K-5.
