Penfield Central School District Reviews
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.
Penfield is a wonderful school District with one thing very very wrong. Due to the lack of support, acceptance, and kindness in the student body, we have suffered from a higher than average rate of mental illness and suicide. 3 students have committed suicide in the past 2 years. If you dont have a problem with your mental health, Penfield is an amazing district, but if you do, I would strongly advise you to search for a more supportive school with administrators that at least acknowledge that they are doing something very wrong.
On the whole, I think I received an excellent education. However there are a few things I would change: the sports program, as in many places, receives way too much attention and funding in proportion to everything else. We were forced to make up gym class after school. We had little to no mandatory practice public speaking. They offer AP World history, but not European history. That said, they have (or at least had, before all the budget cuts) a top music program. They offer a fair number of AP classes. They have newly renovated science, math, and arts wings.
