Penncrest School District Reviews
As a whole, Penncrest School District does it's best with it's limited resources, as it is an isolated, financially corrupt school district. Budget cuts have weakened what this system and in response, the district had to make some tough decisions. They took away school activities and cut teachers, and even combined some activities between schools. I think that this will only make things worse. I believe that this district has great potential, but Penncrest needs to find a way out of this financial hole for things to go back to what they were. This district needs to spend their limited money and resources on what truly matters and what makes this district great- school activities and competition.
I loved how Penncrest School treated its students and faculty. The three schools were provided with many great resources. The teachers are great and you learn so much from them, they really know what they are talking about. I go to Maplewood High School, and I can speak about the level of diversity in our school. We have a placement house in our school district and the students attend Maplewood. Some of them are from Pittsburgh and some are from Philadelphia and some are grins Harrisburg, the diversity is pretty big. I feel like the district has prepared me for college as well.
Penncrest School District consists of a very tight knit community of people that makes it easy to make friends and feel comfortable in a learning environment. The teachers and other staff there are very dedicated to their jobs, and I found to enjoy my education at this school because of the enthusiasm portrayed by these teachers. The food quality could be improved greatly as I eventually transitioned from elementary school to high school by having to pack my lunch. Overall, I enjoyed my time in Penncrest and am proud to call myself an alumni member of this district.
