Pen Argyl Area school district nestled in the blue ridge mountains of the greater slate belt area is a commendable school for there teacher-student relationships. The teachers are very dedicated to their students academic success . Teachers often gear the cirucilum not around standardized test prep but real world readiness. Within there cirucilum they prepare the student for there respective goal after high school; trade school, college, military, or employment. Teachers take the one on one initiative to ensure every students needs are met. I highly recommend this high school.

It was a small school so you knew almost everyone. Not much to choose from when it came to course variety. Teachers were there because they enjoy teaching, at least most. Overall alright experience but would have liked to start at a more wealthier school for better opportunities.
I love the small environment that Pen Argyl provides, it is on the top of a hill in a small size town and the school grounds are fairly nice. The staff are very friendly and are very personal as you get to know them better. The only thing I would change would be how some of the classes are conducted. This is in respect to the lecture classes like civics and AP calc. The classes are at the beginning of the day and since they are lecture courses you tend to want to fall asleep. I would try and move those courses to later in the day, but that is just my opinion.
