  • Reviewed by Former Student on October 10, 2009
  • Rating: 1 (1 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Through out the eight years as a Somerville public school student I went to three different school. The last was the Kennedy. When I attend seven years ago in 2002 I did not feel I was getting the best education in which I was entitled to. The teachers did not want to work fully with me to bring me out of the Special Education program and I feel that I was delyed academically as a result. I found my time at the Kennedy less than statisifing.
