John F. Kennedy Magnet School 2010 NBR School

Port Chester UFSD
Port Chester, New York

John F. Kennedy Magnet School is a K – 5 math, science, and technology magnet school in Port Chester, a low-income city in otherwise prosperous Westchester County. An active port, the city has long drawn immigrant families; with a recent influx of new citizens from Central and South America, 85% of all 725 JFK students come from Spanish-speaking homes (nearly 60% of students are English language learners) and 78% of all students qualify for subsidized meals. With strong support from the central office, Principal Lou Cuglietto and his staff have been aggressive in meeting students’ needs. The JFK Magnet School is one of the top elementary schools in New York State.
