John F. Kennedy Primary School


John F. Kennedy Primary School is home to 440 students in the heart of Raritan NJ. JFK emulates the characteristics of a community that takes pride in its tradition of academic achievement. Our goal is to motivate students to learn while exercising critical thinking and problem-solving on a daily basis. We welcome the challenges and excitement of a diverse student population. In addition, we provide each student with an educational experience that inspires and motivates them to be lifelong learners and caring contributors to the world around them. Families, teachers, and administration provide a safe and nurturing environment that meets the individual needs of each student, both academically, socially, and emotionally. 

We consider it a privilege to work with your children every day to guide them in reaching their full potential.  It is our belief that each and every student has a gift to make a positive impact in our community and beyond; we work hard to unlock their strengths day in and day out. The staff at JFK has high expectations of our students; we hold ourselves to the highest of standards to help all of our students learn and develop into well-versed citizens and critical thinkers. As part of the JFK community, we are grateful for the chance to have such a positive impact on all of the children and families who pass through our doors.   

I look forward to joining together with our teachers, staff, and community in continuing to provide a quality educational environment for all students while making a positive impact each day.  We are a community of expert learners working together to ensure our students achieve personal success in their voyage as lifelong learners. “Together we are better!”
