Penn-Trafford School District Reviews

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 was given the chance to see the old, new and in between during my school's two year construction period. As a freshman, I saw old carpet, peeling paint, and most importantly tasted awful food. However, the next year, things began to change. Suddenly, there were millions of construction workers roaming the halls carrying beams or drills. The drills were the worst part, making it impossible to take my chem tests. Then, the administration decided it would look lovely to paint one puke green wall in each classroom. At first I thought it looked awful, but after visiting other schools, I immediately gained appreciation for my school's transformation into a twenty-first century learning facility. We now how state of the art computers in the "media center" and Chrome books in every classroom. Just as the school grew up, so did I. I became more appreciative for what I had, even the complete bliss of drilling during my chem tests. I can say my four years were one of kind.
My experience at Penn-Trafford has been a solid foundation for my future. Being able to take part in clubs, organizations, and the best sports teams are an important part of why Penn-Trafford is very good. The teachers specialize in their field of study and help as much as possible. The diversity is very poor lacking culture. The new lunch system is also great with the updated lunch plans.
