North Penn Senior High School Reviews
While often people complain about North Penn, I have to say that it isn't really as bad as people say. The problems lie with the other students - a rowdy band of pessimists who, quite frankly, suck - and the faculty's ineptitude with solving peer problems, but if you manage to avoid those by choosing good friends and staying out of trouble, you have a smooth ride! The classes and extracurriculars here are amazing and a lot of fun, and there's such diversity in what you can do here. Those are the school's saving grace. It does start way too early, though.
I just recently moved into North Penn School District, A lot of students at my middle school talk about the teachers in a bad way. The teachers do get mad at students at times when there is no need to be mad but so far my experience at North Penn has been wonderful. I’ve made so many friends and i’ve met so many different people I never thought I’d meet. I would highly recommend moving into the North Penn School District Area, the amount of people may be scary but it’s a very friendly and welcoming place to live at!
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.
