JFK is the only PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Lab in Montgomery County. The program connects our students to local PBS stations and news professionals in the community to produce original, student-generated video reports. The students who participate in the project learn how to think critically, problem solve, synthesize information and investigate important topics. The Kennedy High School Reporting Lab web page provides many examples of the students' work.
