Counseling & Career Center


Hello JFK Students,
So much has changed at our school, in our neighborhoods and in the community.
For most of us, change brings a range of confusing feelings and unanswered questions or sometimes it brings excitement for opportunities that are new and different.
Your Counselors at Kennedy want you to know that you are not alone and that we are here to help, whatever your issue may be.
You may be struggling and are feeling a little “off” emotionally or you could have a serious college or career question. Whatever you need, we will listen and help as best we can. 

Please email us with your name and a best way to contact you, either by phone, text or email. We will contact you as soon as we can within the hours of 8-3, Monday through Friday.
If you are not feeling safe and need help at any time, please see the hotlines we have listed on this page.
Stay safe and take care!
Mrs. Anderson, Ms. DiBasilio, Mr. Drotts, Mr. Martinez, Mr. Norman and Mrs. Vue
