The Downside

Little information available

The John F. Kennedy Jr. School is a safe and orderly school where teachers respect the principal, surveys say.

The school, which serves around 500 students age 14-21, is located in Elmhurst, Queens. The student body mainly consists of learners on the autism spectrum, those with cognitive challenges, and those with multiple disabilities. The attendance rate for the 2015-2016 school year was 84.8 percent, according to the Comprehensive Education Plan. Also key to note is that the quality of teaching at the school is good, based on the 2015 Quality Review.
