Call 510-657-4070. Any of our front office staff can make an appointment for you to meet with the Registrar.
DO NOT make an appointment if you DO NOT have ALL of the information required to register your child and ALL your paperwork completed.
There are 2 ways you can register your student at John F. Kennedy High School.
1. Go to the school office and pick up an enrollment packet. Once all the forms are completed and you have all the required documentation, schedule an appointment to register your student.
2. Complete and print the forms listed below. Schedule an appointment to register your student. Bring the completed forms and the other required documentation to your appointment.
Once the forms are completed bring them to your appointment with the Registrar. Be sure to bring all required documents listed on the forms. If your student is coming from a foreign country we need to make a copy of the original transcript document showing the name of the student, dates, classes, and grades for all their high school years. The document needs to be stamped and signed by the school. Emailed documents or copies of documents are not acceptable. If you are coming from another school in the United States, please bring a copy of your transcript with you. It does not need to be official.

If you are leaving John F. Kennedy High School you need to have a parent/guardian contact your Attendance Clerk. A checkout sheet will be generated which you will need to bring to your teachers/library to sign. Your next step is to take the sign out sheet to Ms. Facha in the Business Office. She will check for any overdue books, etc. YOU CANNOT CHECK OUT WITHOUT ALL THE REQUIRED SIGNATURES. Your final stop will be with the Registrar. You will be given a copy of the checkout sheet and a copy of your transcript to take to your new school. If you owe money or have missing books, your new school will receive an unofficial copy of your transcripts. Schools require an official copy to give you credit for the classes you have taken. So it is best to pay all your debts as you are leaving.
