JB Pennington High School Reviews
Jb Pennington was a huge influence in my life. People from all around the county were joined in an emotional connection and supported each other while doing our best to motivate ourselves too. I wish that we could improve the graduation rate and stress safe driving and activities. Being a senior I am still improving throughout the school and have faced many challenges but have also received help from my counselor and teachers to get me through the rough patches in my life. I can truthfully say that I am proud to be a part of the Pennington family.
J B Pennington has not only been a school to me, but it has become a home. The administrators and staff at PHS have taken the time to make sure each and every one of my classmates and I have succeeded. J B Pennington has been my home for five and a half years, and for that I am grateful. I hope that one day, in the far future, I can send my children to a school that is half as good as PHS. The dedication of each and every staff member at Pennington has been a huge encouragement to me throughout the past five years. I hope that one day I can make an impact on someone the way J B Pennington has impacted me.
J.B. Pennington High School is a great school. I’ve enjoyed my education at JBPHS! I wouldn’t want anything changed about it.
