I like the positivity and the way the teachers are always trying to ecourage the students to do their best. It gets hard to do school work sometimes, especially now with most things being online and motivation is a huge factor to staying successfull, and they always make sure to remind us of our goals and our future.
Pen Argyl is a good school. I only wish there were more extracurriculars. Also, our sports aren't the best. We still have a grass football field with no lights. It's a safe school, where everyone knows everyone.
At Pen Argyl, everyone knows one another due to the small size of the school. This creates more interaction between students and teachers allowing for more one on one learning. This in turn leads to the school feeling very comfortable to be in and safe and is something I enjoy about the school. However, there is a lack of resources that the school has available. This leads to students at higher grade levels being taught what others from another school district learned 1-2 years before. This puts students at a disadvantage. It also shows for sports teams as due to the current state of the track, no home meets can be hosted. Overall, great teachers and the students created memorable experiences dispute a lack of money available.
Pen Argyl is a pretty average high school. Nothing will stick out at a glance. One thing I liked about Pen Argyl was the smaller class sizes. It's a pretty small school, so there is plenty of opportunities to get one on one time with teachers. Something I would change is college readiness. I'm an upcoming senior, and I felt like I still had questions about my career after high school.
Small school but filled with good people and teachers who’s goal is to help the students succeed. The attitude the in the school is positive all around and you are always encouraged to be a good student.
Some of the teachers did an extraordinary job and influenced me to want to become a teacher. There is a benefit to being a smaller school, such as smaller class sizes for better engagement.
The teachers and administrators at Pen Argyl are super amazing. They give each student the support they need and provide them with every opportunity for growth.
I am a senior at Pen Argyl High School, and overall it is a decent school. I love almost all my teachers, and I feel prepared for college. The problem with the school; however, is how they play favorites. There is also not a lot of clubs and activities to join. I felt pretty much alone at the school.
I give my school a four-star rating because I have enjoyed my time there. It is a small school where everyone knows everyone which allowed me to grow up with some of my best friends. The teachers are very supportive and easy to talk to, they just want their students to do well. I also love the close-knit community that the school has.
I really enjoyed my time at Pen Argyl Area High School but there was a lack of diversity. I also felt that more AP courses should have been offered. I loved taking AP Biology but I would have liked to take AP Chemistry as well, however it was not offered at my school. Most of the teachers are willing to help if you are not understanding something to make sure you are excelling in all of your classes.
The school is somewhat outdated, but the faculty is friendly and encouraging. The alumni at the time of this writing are accepting and open-minded. The school offers computer programming courses, woodshop, and Chinese, to name some uncommon classes provided.
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.
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's a very tight knit school. Great teachers with very active parents encouraging us to excel in life.
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.
Small school, but I have met awesome people! It's definitely weird to continue on through life's journey, but growing up in this school, I feel prepared to move on!
It's a very small school. Everyone knows each other. Teachers are nice. School needs air condition though.
