Local School Partnerships
For more than 30 years, we have partnered with the Coolidge Corner School (formerly known as the Edward M. Devotion School), the same school John F. Kennedy attended as a child. Called "What JFK Means to Me," this partnership program immerses third graders in JFK's life, and encourages them to realize their own potential as leaders and citizens. During a public ceremony, students share their impressions of the President through essays and poetry. Click here to read student work and view photographs of the program.
