I am extremely grateful for the academic experience that I received from Penn-Trafford High School. My family moved here seeking quality education for my siblings and me, and we were gifted with more than we could have ever imagined. The teachers are phenomenal at what they do and they truly believe in the philosophy that no student should be left behind. They work tirelessly to push their students to achieve their full potential. The technology made available to us is astounding, as every student is supplied with a Chromebook and access to our newly renovated media center. I not only advanced on a scholastic level during my time here, as I also was able to learn valuable life and social skills. I feel that Penn-Trafford has significantly prepared me for life after high school.

Penn Trafford High School not only prepared me for high school, but also helped me find the best friends I could ever have. They have some of the best teachers. The teachers provide you with all of the necessary materials to succeed as best as possible. The classes are challenging and make sure that you are truly pushing yourself to the best of your abilities. As long as you put your best foot forwards, Penn Trafford High School will make sure that you have everything you need to succeed.
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.
