John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, was a man of great knowledge. For example as a child he would discuss politics at the dinner table. When he was in school he attended a number of academies and private schools. He went to some of the greatest Ivy League colleges in the world, which helped lead him to the White House. Sadly his life was taken at the young age of 46, but his legacy still continues.
John F. Kennedy was born to Joseph Patrick Kennedy and Rose Fitzgerald on May 29, 1917 in Brookline, Massachusetts. He was their third child. As a child John enjoyed things such as playing sports with his brothers. John went to plenty of different schools as a child. John did fairly well in school. When he graduated in 1935 from Choate, a boarding school in Connecticut, he was 64th in a class of 112. John knew he wanted to do something he just didn’t know what.
On his road to the White House, JFK went to Harvard University and served in WWII. But before Harvard was Princeton, which didn’t last very long. When he attended Harvard he felt like he was in the shadow of his older brother, Joe. John didn’t do so well when he went to collage, "gentleman's C's," as some would say. He did like to write though, he wrote for the Harvard Crimson, the campus newspaper. He also played on the JV football team during his sophomore year. He finished senior year at Harvard. After he had graduated he went to Stanford Business School.
John was also a war...
