Mission Statement


John F. Kennedy  

Educational Complex


The John F. Kennedy Educational Complex will maintain a safe, orderly, and nurturing environment that allows for staff and students to take risks.  Our four specialized schools will provide purposeful activities to increase student engagement and academic rigor that will promote student achievement for all students. As we celebrate our cultural and ethnic diversity, we will make positive impacts on the lives of all our students and proudly serve our Paterson community. The combined efforts of all stakeholders will identify our character and allow us to become leaders in urban education.
