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.
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.
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.
More than a dozen pioneering middle school students will be the first from Redwood City School District (RCSD) to obtain Biliteracy Attainment Recognition through the San Mateo County Office of Education (SMCOE) as part of a new program. The 2022-23 promoting students were the first to leave Redwood City School District with official County Office recognition for their biliteracy.
