Our Vision is a School dedicated to producing successive generations of students prepared to constructively participate in society.
Our Mission is student development. We work to release the inherent intellectual capacity of all children, build their self esteem and affirm their right to learn.
We commit ourselves to break the cycle of underdevelopment that restrains so many of our children of color. We will disprove the myth that these children cannot learn at high levels and demonstrate their true capabilities.

Raymond is the President of Dare to Dream at Kennedy Elementary. He has shown so much growth as a student because he is proud of the title he is holding. His teachers have observed him on numerous occasions and seen that he can be trusted to follow rules even when he does not know teachers or other adults are paying attention. He is respectful to all of the staff members as well as the entire student body. He even assists at home by helping his sister with her homework each night so that she does not fall behind academically.
We are very proud of Raymond!
