    As part of the High School Restructuring initiative, the former academies at the John F. Kennedy Educational Complex – School of Architecture and Construction Trades (ACT), School of Business, Technology, Marketing and Finance (BTMF), School of Education and Training (SET), and School of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) – are no longer active. Pathways associated with ACT, BTMF, and SET will remain. Pathways associated with STEM will now be offered at Paterson STEAM High School.

    All students who attend  the campus at 61-127 Preakness Avenue will be enrolled in a unified “John F. Kennedy High School.” John F. Kennedy High School is a nurturing environment that allows for staff and students to take risks. Our specialized pathways will provide purposeful activities to increase student engagement and academic rigor that will promote student achievement for all students. As we celebrate our cultural and ethnic diversity, we will make positive impacts on the lives of all our students and proudly serve our Paterson community.
