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 has been a great school district. The staff has been very supportive throughout my years here. If I could change anything, it would be to have the administration be a little more inclusive. The school board had to be involved when we wanted to start a GSA and people had to sign petitions to start it. However, that is just the high school specifically. Every staff member I've ever personally come into contact with has been very welcoming and friendly.
Good school district overall. Unfortunately, the district faculty lacks diversity. As the student body becomes more diverse I hope to see the faculty change to be better able to understand and relate with students from under represented groups.
