North Penn School District Reviews

North penn is a huge environment. Being said, there is room for so many courses, clubs and sports; including partnership with a hands-on tech school not too far away, A credit recovery school for those who’s GPA’s require a boost and Air Force funded JROTC. However there is also room for negligence, ignorance and discomfort. Because it is such a big school, finding where you belong is a bit tough, so they have put together a community building “link crew” system to assimilate each student. Our sports are amazing! Champs, I dare say. And the staff do what they must to create a better future for those who put in the effort.

Overall, North Penn is a fantastic district. Students are academically recognized state and nationwide. There is an activity, club, or sport for EVERYONE! The district is rich in diversity, culture, and toleration. While it is difficult for teachers to know students well on a personal basis due to size, the majority of them really do care about their students and their success. Tons of school spirit! If I had to do it over again, I would most definitely go through this district. Only thing I wish I would have done was to get involved more and take advantage of ALL resources.
North Penn has a tremendous community of parents and teachers working side by side with children to give the best education possible. However, like any district around the country, it has ups and downs. Despite the flaws, North Penn maintains an open community which always tries to get the opinions of every student to maintain everyone's voice be at least heard. The school has only gotten more diverse, which I believe is the continual force in creating a better academic environment. Last but not least, North Penn school district pride itself with the many academic/extracurricular opportunities especially in the HS which peaks interests of a plethora of students ranging from AP research classes to cultural clubs.
