Kennedy High School was recently named a Reward School by the New York State Education Department.
“The teachers and administrators at these Reward Schools work hard each day to raise the bar and give their students opportunities to achieve their dreams,” stated Board of Regents Chancellor Betty A. Rosa in the Feb. 1 announcement.
Reward Schools are schools with high academic achievement or those with the most progress in the state and do not have significant gaps in student achievement between subgroups.
Kennedy was among 155 high achieving and high progress schools recognized as Reward Schools. Each school will receive a certificate of recognition from the commissioner.
