"We are on our way with J.F.K"


      John F. Kennedy Elementary School
A Reward School
John F. Kennedy Elementary School in West Babylon, New York is a kindergarten through fifth grade public school. The school opened its doors, for the first time in September of 1965. The school was named for the 35th president of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, who had been assassinated in Dallas, Texas in 1963. 

Our mission statement reads "The community of John F. Kennedy Elementary School is committed to encouraging, empowering and engaging children as they are valued, for their individuality, and diverse capabilities.  We emphasize the individual needs of the whole child while enhancing learning.  We will provide a safe, nurturing learning environment while inspiring children to achieve academic potential as life long learners."  The school's motto "We're On Our Way With JFK"  was suggested by the students of West Babylon, not long after the building opened.

Today, JFK houses approximately eighty staff members who work as a team to deliver instruction that is aligned to the Common Core State Standards for 420 students. We are proud of our award winning school with a well deserved reputation, for excellence and friendliness. Please use this website as a resource for you, and your child.
