Kennedy School


School moves Portland into the 20th century

The John D. Kennedy School, dedicated in 1915 three blocks from the end of the street car line welcomed many students whose families had no electricity, water, sewer or phone.  The school’s architect, Floyd Naramore was known for his Georgian architecture, design of NW schools and moving them out of the 19th century cramped one-room buildings into ones with open space, circulation and light, and decorative moldings and dentilwork.  The school children depicted on the pillars in the front of Kennedy School conspicuously face away from each other.
