Our Mission

John F. Kennedy High School’s mission is to empower our students to meet the challenges of tomorrow, whatever they may be. This can be achieved through creating a respectful and inclusive environment. It is our collective belief that through caring and fostering a nurturing environment, our students can develop the strength and confidence needed to face the world. We strive to create an atmosphere where students are encouraged to refine the skills they possess as well as acquire new skills so they may become lifelong learners.

Our Vision

We aim to help students identify their strengths, and in focusing on these strengths, help them to maximize their potential. By doing so, we feel we greatly increase the chances for all, from academically robust to the at-risk students, to find their path towards success beyond high school. Ultimately, the goal is to ensure that each and every one of our students is equipped with the tools they require to reach their goals, whether they intend to pursue a CEGEP/ University degree or prefer to study in the professional, technical or vocational fields.

Principal’s Message

​It is important to note that with high expectations we seek high standards… John F. Kennedy has made great strides towards success under fabulous leadership over the past few years. Keeping this in mind we still have our fair share of challenges. Focussing on these challenges and obstacles will be our collective goal. I am hopeful that the spirit of respect, hard work, and perseverance will shine through in our efforts for success.

At John F. Kennedy we promote and advocate student success and personal growth in a positive learning environment.  The educational community will help the students develop and succeed in their academic careers. Our goal at John F. Kennedy is to demonstrate growth in the following traits:  empathy, trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.

If you have a positive attitude and constantly strive to give your best effort, eventually you will overcome your immediate problems and find you are ready for greater challenges.”  Pat Riley (Former Coach of World Champion Los Angeles Lakers)

We are all on a journey of lifelong learning and our “attitude” will determine our “altitude”. Hard work, perseverance, and commitment to your goals will ensure a bright future. Take the time to develop strong personal relationships throughout your experiences in school. These relationships will help to guide and nurture your character and personalities.

Enjoy a very successful and rewarding 2017- 2018 school year. Aim high so that you can touch the sky.
