J. F. Kennedy Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

May 12, 2014 Submitted by a parent
"Our child has been going to JFK since kindergarten and is now finishing 4th grade. He has had small (10-15) classes with caring and dedicated teachers. The administration is solid and seem to be working towards a better school for all. Sure there is always a couple disruptive kids in his class each year, but that's public school for you and it doesn't seem to detract from his ability to excel and be challenged. On the contrary, being identified as a top student and leader, he has been given many opportunities to be challenged and grow. We also love that the school is so diverse and he has friends who come from all around the world and bring their culture with them. The challenges Winooski faces are similar to many public schools across the US that serve lower income families. Parental involvement is inconsistent because many parents work off hours or are new to the country and are still finding their way in a new system. I think the school does a great job with what they have and have successful programs in place to promote diversity, mindfulness, anti-bullying, and expected behaviors. Don't let low testing scores and isolated ""horror stories"" scare you away from Winooski."

When I worked at this school I was mortified by the bad behavior that was reinforced with positive things such as games and playing. The teachers should learn how to use the Responsive Classroom model. However, I was surprised when I asked a student to line up and he gave me the finger, while his parent was standing there. The parent did absolutely nothing to discipline the child. I told them to take a break and sit down. The parent decided this was not an appropriate response and began to argue with me. Really? Where is the teacher support? Not only were some of the parents unsupportive, but two of the first grade teachers were as well. When I began working here, these two teachers were bullying another teacher on their team. The principal was alerted to the problem, but let the bullies stay together. Her solution was to move the teacher who was bullied into another grade. There are some serious behavior issues that the principal needs to address not only with the students but with the staff. This was a horrible place to work. I would never send my kids here.

I have two children at JFK and I have been very happy. Our kids' skills are above grade level and I feel that they are adequately challenged. The teachers are very accommodating and we have had nothing but good experiences. Most importantly, our kids are happy with the school. When I have met with the administration on various parent committees, I find that they are responsive to my suggestions and appreciate my input. When I talk to my friends with kids in other school districts, I find that our experience at Winooski is similar to neighboring schools.

We have two children at this school, and have generally had a positive experience. Every time I have been in my children's classrooms when school is in session, I have seen engaged children, dedicated teachers, and well managed classrooms. We do hear of occasional discipline problems, but they are a small part of our children's experience. My only complaint would be that, when our kids were in kindergarten, they had a lot of seat time and not quite enough structured play time.

The teachers in this school are great! I cannot, however, speak to the administration. My child has never had problems at this school, thus I have not had to go to the principal to have to solve any issues.
