Penfield is a great school district. I am lucky to be here and be able to attend all 12 years at Penfield. They have prepared me for my future and I am ready! The school counselors here are great.They help me with whatever questions I have. Also the grilled bagels are delicious. There is plenty of diversity in the schools and I have learned about many different cultures. All of the teachers and super helpful too. There are plenty of opportunities to participate in sports and they have a club for literally everything. If there is not a club, you can start one.

Penfield school’s have prepared me for my future and have the tools to guide students to become well educated, productive people. The teachers are wonderful people that are readily available and passionate in helping students succeed. However diversity is truly lacking in the school, leaving many students with a disproportionate idea of the actual ethnic, political and religious diversity of the country.
Great high school. Teachers are very passionate about their jobs and it comes across in the classroom. Additionally, teachers are very aware of their students mental health and work hard to ensure students are mentally healthy. Penfield has worked very hard to make mental health a priority with programs such as Sources of Strength. Penfield is a supportive and caring community and Penfield High School is no different. Overall a very positive environment.
