Penfield Central School District Reviews
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.
I transferred into Penfield half way through my sophmore year of high school. They were so nice and accommodating to me. The kids there get it. I didn't make friends right away but life has a funny way of working out and getting you to the people you need. It's such a big school that you will find someone who gets it and if you don't find that person just get a pass to the library, but in your classes you'll always find someone to work with. Obviously there are some teachers and administrators who aren't the best they are very accommodating and will let you switch out of the class if it's truly bad.
Penfield Central School District is an amazing, supportive community in the suburbs of Rochester, New York. The majority of teachers truly have the best interests of their students in mind, and will work as hard as they can to not only teach their students, but also have a positive influence on them. The other faculty are outstanding, always walking around the high school with a smile on their face, especially the janitors. I have been in the district since I was in Kindergarten, and am now a senior at the high school. Although there have been several rough patches throughout my time there, Penfield has shown their continued support. It's weird to think I won't be a Penfield student next year, as it is all I have known my entire life. And it has been outstanding.
