Alex R. Kennedy
Metropolitan Middle School
Alex R. Kennedy Metropolitan Middle School is an alternative school for the Jefferson County Public School system. The school specializes in dealing with middle school students that have demonstrated behavioral problems at their home school. The students are referred by Pupil Personnel, Juvenile Court, or state and county agencies. The primary goals of the school are to affect the behavior of the students so they may experience academic success, improve attendance and return to their home school. It is the school's philosophy that all students can learn through smaller class size, a cohesive staff, and acceptable behavior rewards. It is the school's aim to instill responsibility in each student. Students also learn that inappropriate behavior has consequences. Students learn through proper role models and varied learning techniques to heighten their behavioral and educational skills. Once these skills are achieved, the student will return to his/her home school and hopefully exhibit success academically and socially.
