About Us

The Kennedy Clarion was established at John F. Kennedy High School in Fall, 1967, and is written, edited and produced by members of the Journalism/Newspaper class, an A-G elective.  It is available online via and social media (@jfkclarion).  The Clarion news source operates as an open forum for student expression, and aspires to tell the ongoing story of Kennedy — and to uphold the ideals of journalism as a public service that keeps citizens well informed about their school, community, and world.  The content of the Clarion reflects the interests and ideas of students, but not necessarily those of Kennedy administration, faculty and staff.

Paper archives are kept at Kennedy High School.  In addition, you may access the following PDFs from 2015-2019:
