New Gifted Medical Magnet in 2016-2017 (Grades 9-12)

Kennedy was chosen to open a new highly gifted, gifted, and high ability magnet for the 2016-17 school year serving 450 students. Normally the process for opening a magnet takes several years, but because of the great need in our community for such a program, this process has been expedited. We intended to further develop the Biomedical Health and Fitness Academy to include Sports Medicine. This magnet will be open to all qualified students in grades 9-12. For more Information contact Ms. Wellbaum, Magnet Coordinator, @ (818) 271-2912.
