From 2010-14, each spring, the school put on a variety show encompassing aspects of both the performing arts and a visual art display. The show is called Kennedy Honors Excellence in the Arts, and was modeled after the Kennedy Center Honors that take place annually in Washington DC. The event showcased the talents of students in the areas of visual, vocal, instrumental and acting performance. In addition, the show paid tribute to an individual who has greatly benefited performing arts at JFK. Since 2015, the variety show has been rebranded Fiddlesticks and become almost entirely student-run.
In 2012, Tyler Luonuansuu ('12) won the State Championship title in Student Congressional Debate at the Ohio High School Speech League state tournament at Jackson High School in Massillon, Ohio.
