Meet the Principal


Greetings Kennedy Community,

My name is Mr. Joseph Nuño (noon-yo) and I have been the Site Leader at the Kennedy for the past two years and prior to this I was the Principal at Garden Gate Elementary for two years. I am very excited to celebrate my 5th year with the Cupertino Union School District!

Before joining the CUSD team, I was with the Mount Pleasant Elementary School District where I taught and led for almost 10 years.

I am a leader who deeply cares about the success and emotional well-being of all students. Moreover, I value building relationships with the entire school community and understand the importance of being visible and consistently engaging with teachers, parents, and the community at large.

Aside from my role as an administrator, I am a father of three wonderful children. I enjoy almost anything outdoors from bike rides to long walks, fishing, golfing, and especially watching my son play college baseball.

I look forward to getting to know each of you throughout our year together!
