We are proud to announce that John F. Kennedy High School will partner with AVID to better prepare our students for college and career success. There will be much more information to follow this announcement after we finalize our agreement with AVID. The first year of implementation will start with sophomores in AVID 10. Current freshmen need to pick up their applications from the front office starting April 13th. The applications are due by April 22nd.
