North Penn Senior High School Reviews

I loved the available academics, the teachers, the opportunities, and the culture! Sports are a big thing here, especially football. It was awesome being able to go with all of my classmates to watch the games! There are also many options for your school day, especially when you are a senior. You can take away lunches (with parent permission) so that you can squeeze in that one extra class you've been dying to take, or in your senior year you can opt to come in a period late, or leave a period early, to catch some extra sleep or to start working earlier in the day, earning some extra cash. The administration is always approachable and ready to help the students with course selection and college application processes, and the multitude of honors and AP level courses allows students to perform at their full academic extent. There are also so many clubs and extracurricular activities that anyone can find something to be active in.

We heard when we moved to the district that “your kid is just going to feel like a number due to the size of the class; 1000 graduating class”!

The statement couldn’t be further from the truth! My daughter (as did our family) part of a community! My daughter praised the teachers on how well they worked/interacted/engaged with her/the class. There are plenty of clubs to pick from for additional mingling, etc. Seriously, North Penn provided my daughter the knowledge and strength to pursue her future. 2 thumbs up or 5 excellent stars!
My experience at North Penn was awesome throughout my years at the school. People seem to fear North Penn, because of its size, but I think that's what makes it so special. You'll meet a person of almost every race, culture, or belief you've ever heard of. The diversity is truly something special and I believe that's what brings the school together. Everyone of us is different, but we are all North Penn Knights, and we all take pride in that. The academics and sports are also excellent. I believe North Penn offers about 25 AP classes, which is much more than other schools. Outside of the APs, North Penn offers classes in every subject you could possibly want. We have an expansive music and art department, and my personal favorite class was Graphic Design. Our sports teams are pretty good too, and we always have support from the rest of our student body. Go Knights!
