I went to Penn Manor School District from first grade to twelfth grade. I loved every second of being in the school district. They administration is caring for their students, and want to see them succeed. I loved all of my teachers and principals. I then came back and worked as a teacher's aide for about 3 years in one of the elementary schools while I was taking college classes. My dream would be to come back after I graduate and work for Penn Manor as an elementary school teacher!

The Penn Manor School District is easily one of the best school districts out there. I have never heard of a place that is so welcoming and supportive of everyone. The faculty at Penn Manor is always trying to find the best in every student, they truly help to make students shine. The opportunities presented at Penn Manor are also like I've never seen. I am entering a college for a major in Zoo Science. This is because of the opportunities I have had at Penn Manor. They have such a wide variety of classes and clubs, every student can find something they are interested in. Once I had an idea of what I wanted to do in the future, my educators never stopped supporting me through it all. I can say that I truly enjoyed every second of being a student at Penn Manor. Thank you to all of the staff who have helped me discover who I am, and lead me to my dream school and career!
Penn Manor School District is a great school district. The classes and courses at the school are challenging, but also fun at the same time. The teachers at the school perform well at their jobs. The sports teams are good too. The school does its job at preparing you for college, but it would be nice at having more help with understanding the college application process, finding and applying for scholarships, and being on track in taking the right set of courses for the student's future college major.
