As a teacher at William Penn SHS, I wouldn't say that everything is wonderful here, but there are amazing things happening all of the time. We have a diverse student population and a staff that is dedicated to teaching them. We have been striving to build up the academics for students. Our students have been making great things happen, from students being accepted to Ivy League colleges, to the band making a difference in Chicago, the performing arts students excelling at their craft and students bringing their own personality to the classroom. I love teaching here!

We as a district are very close we all push one to do great things, we receive plenty of help from our staff and some staff are even parents of the students who go to one of the local schools. We receive well education but many students are into the street life so they don’t really grasp the information given. I would like to change how many students perspectives because some settle for less and some exceed the standards given I wish everyone would be motivated to have a growing mindset.
York city school district was not the best when it came to certain things that should be at the top of their priority list. I would like for this district to care more about the student academics instead sports. Whenever I would go to the principal about any issues regarding a teacher or an administrator I would not be taken seriously, I would be the one who was simply being disrespectful or not talking to the teacher about my problem. I used to love my school district until I started attending middle school and everything changed as far as my attitude towards getting up for bed. I knew that attending these school was not the best and I didn't want to wake up and go to school because I felt it was a horrible experience. The students attending the school was not being motivated to achieve any goals except to be good in sports.
