Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Kennedy School is one of 21 schools run by the English Schools Foundation (ESF). The ESF was founded by Ordinance in 1967 to provide a ‘modern liberal education’ through the medium of English.

Kennedy School is committed to providing a high-quality education for all its pupils. The children are taught an English medium international curriculum, modified to make it appropriate for the needs of children living in Hong Kong. Kennedy teaches the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) and is an authorised IB World School. Kennedy also has accreditation with the Council of International Schools (CIS).

Teaching approach of the school

At Kennedy, as in most primary schools today, the emphasis is on creating a relaxed but stimulating atmosphere which is conducive to learning and fostering each child’s creative, aesthetic, intellectual, social, moral and emotional development. The teacher’s role is to create and direct children’s experiences, to act as a consultant and guide and to monitor and record what is learned.

Kennedy is not only concerned with the preparation for secondary school but with the development of the child as a whole during six very important years. Qualities of self-discipline, integrity, respect and generosity are encouraged and pupils are helped to develop a positive self-image together with consideration and respect for the feelings of others. Kennedy wants its children to develop a tolerance and understanding of other cultures and religions, thus enabling them to experience more fully and consciously all that life has to offer.
