It was a good school with good academic programs and wonderful clubs and after school activities. However, during my four years I witnessed teachers lie to students. I was bullied and I had teachers ignore it when I told them that I was being bullied, and one teacher even ignored another students request to see the guidance counselor, and instead of helping her, he insisted we 'get back to astrophysics!' Teachers were by far the worst part of Penn-Trafford, however, not all of them give me headaches just to think about.
I loved everything about the school and all of the teachers. It is a school district that I would want my children attending some day along with highly recommending the school district to anyone I know debating on where to send their kids to school. The only thing I may change is the standardized testing. Yes, I understand the state makes the school do that, but I find it unnecessary in regards to what that child will do in their future.
