Pennridge is an excellent school district! The community cares about education and the teachers my children have are excellent.
The staff really make the school what it is. The teachers and counselors are all so friendly and are really there to help you suceed.
My son just graduated and loved Pennridge! He was able to take both Advanced Placement courses and electives like guitar building. Teachers are wonderful and opportunities to be involved are there for every student.
Pennridge gives a variety of sports and extra circulars. However, many of the teachers don't like teaching or won't want to teach. The students here are mainly very conservative people and have many clashing ideas with other students. Our school doesn't have any leading sports except track and feild which they are extremely good.
The teachers were amazing and very helpful. I met some of my best friends who I am still very close with. I moved into the school my sophomore year which was an easy transition and made me very happy. Finally, the track coach and track program are the best in the country and I could not have asked for a better experience.
Just an average experience but my senior year is ruined and no one cares. Some teachers don’t care about the well-being of students while others I think of as family. It’s depends. But our sports do great
Very good experience overall, but the guidance counselor I had was terrible. Helped me with close to nothing when it came to applying and picking a college, very disappointing.
Pennridge School District has helped me further my education from elementary to high school. Being on one of the winter sports team during high school has helped me meet great new friends.
Pennridge High School is an amazing school. I have grown so much and learned so much from the teachers and administrators there. All of my teachers have truly been great role models for me and have taught me so much. I feel that the teachers all truly enjoy teaching and have a real passion for the subject they teach. I definitely have earned a quality education and have strengthened my academics because of the teachers and the curriculum. The extracurriculars are outstanding and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to join such amazing clubs such as Key Club. The school is maintained very well and kept clean. I don't ever feel uncomfortable in the building. The only thing that I think needs to be worked on is diversity teaching. A large proportion of the school is white and I feel that especially during these times students should be taught about inclusion and diversity.
My siblings and I have gone through the Pennridge school district. They give us a great education and get us set up for success in the future. While academics are important and emphasized, there are still many opportunities to get involved and have fun.
I loved the Pennridge community. I had nothing but kind teachers and principals, they truly care about the kids in the school and do their best to support them.
It was an average experience from 1-12 grade. Better than other nearby high schools. Not a lot of diversity.
Pennridge School District has an average testing score but schools are more than grades. The higher-ups in this district does not care about the well being of the students. Safety issues are constantly swept under the rug by the administration, including sexual assault within the student body. A disgrace!
Pennridge was an above average school with plenty or redeeming factors. It had good academics and most teachers were very good and cared. Their math department was one of their weakest of all their departments. Most students became very cynical and pessimistic going through that school as teachers sometimes push students too hard in conjunction with after school activities making or a breeding ground for depression. School there was a grind and I don't miss it, however I do feel like the school made the best version of me there is.
PennRidge High School is an academically solid school with a staff that seems to really care; However, the communication with parents and between students and staff is lacking in its efficacy.
I like Pennridge because everyone is very friendly and it is overall a great environment. However, I think the teachers occasionally do the bare minimum to help kids succeed, and when students go to them for help, they are sometimes denied said help.
I’ve had a great time at Pennridge. I got to take interesting classes, like Film and Media Production while also taking classes to prepare me for college, like AP Statistics. I have made great connections with students and teachers at the school. I also loved the inclusion of special needs students in the district. Being a part of a group, encouraging togetherness and acceptance, was definitely a high point when I think of my time at Pennridge.
