Vision


Robert F. Kennedy Community High School graduates will transition from high school to post-secondary education and careers with the knowledge and skills necessary to become productive and compassionate citizens of the world.

Mission

At Robert F. Kennedy Community High School, we foster an environment in which our differences are respected and community is celebrated. We encourage students to take risks, discover their strengths, and develop new interests through challenging instructional practice and a rigorous curriculum. We partner with parents and families in supporting our students as they work toward their personal and academic goals.


Instructional Focus

Robert F. Kennedy Community High School teachers will provide all learners:

· the highest quality instruction evidenced in their classroom through a visible and clearly stated learning objective for the lesson of the day

· a rigorous curriculum delivered through inquiry-based instruction

· lessons incorporating academic vocabulary

· lessons that elicit and promote critical and creative thinking

· opportunities for student engagement and checking for understanding


Principal’s Message

I am excited and truly honored to be the Principal of Robert F. Kennedy Community High School and be a member of this vibrant school community. I look forward every day to working with all members of our school community to carry on the mission of providing a strong education foundation that will enable our students to be lifelong learners as well as prepare them to be successful in life. Working together, I am confident that we will be able to provide our students with a truly challenging and enriching high school experience. A rich array of extra-curricular activities will further enhance the quality of what we are able to offer them. Being a small community high school ensures that we get to know all of our students. Those students who take advantage of what our school has to offer, often have a greater high school experience.

Please explore our school’s website. It contains many useful and valuable links and information. Included are links to our online student data management system, PupilPath. This system allows for students and parents to actively monitor progress. There are also links to school and district policies, school calendar, the PSAL, faculty emails, study guides and aids, and the latest school news, just to name a few.

As always, please feel free to reach out to our school to schedule a tour or visit, or if you need assistance.

Sincerely,

Anthony Barbetta

Triborough Bridge named after RFK

Now that the Triborough Bridge has been renamed after former New York Senator Robert F. Kennedy, some city schools are teaching lessons about his life.

His daughter, Kerry Kennedy, made the announcement at the RFK Community High School in Flushing, Queens.
