Kennedy Elementary

Welcome to Kennedy Elementary! We are one of Madison’s largest elementary schools, a diverse community of 520 learners served by a dedicated staff and supported by our families. We are 50 years strong and recently grew to include our first 4K classes. With the completion of a recent renovation, Kennedy is also fully accessible for the first time. Together we can ensure that all of our students, families, and staff have what they need to learn and grow.

Welcome to Kennedy Elementary

Together we can.

Our mission is to ensure that all children succeed academically and socially so that they continue developing lifelong learning skills and respect for diversity, by providing an appropriately challenging curriculum and a safe, nurturing learning environment that fosters individual responsibility and productive citizenship.
