Starting high school can be overwhelming especially at Penn, a huge School with over a thousand students.I love how the teachers are willing to use their Leisure Time to help out students with their grades.Not to mention the hard-working Lunch Ladies for all the students.We have about 10 selections each day for lunch. Also, the classes we can choose from are unlimited.The clubs are great experience being able to travel and explore. In sophomore year and senior we get an opportunity to go to Elkhart Career Center or other places to earn early college credits. The sports are competitive. It helps to become social and overall is a great experience.You will never worry about not fitting in, there are many different types of people you will find your unique group. Like any other school there is drama but that all depends on where you put yourself.A situation is nothing without a reaction. Just remember, going into HighSchool, pay no mind to those negative situations and you'll be fine.
Review Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation
I attended elementary, junior-high, and high school in the Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation and I am so thankful that I was able to attend school in such a great district! I always felt as though my teachers truly cared about the students and they were available to help when you needed them. The only flaw in the system is that it can be easy to feel left behind in such a large corporation.
What I enjoyed about the Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation was that even though there was a relatively large amount of students in my overall graduating class, none of my classrooms seemed to be too many students. This meant I was able to get the assistance I needed when I needed it. I also enjoyed that most of my teachers did seem to care about me and how I was doing in the class. One thing I would like to see changed about PHM Schools is the lack of preparedness for college. Senior year, offer a class that is mandatory for those who are about to graduate or graduating early that helps give a better knowledge of college applications, scholarships, study habits, note taking, etc. I feel like as soon as I went off to college, I was not prepared at all for what I was getting myself into.
