I was exposed to a great learning experience, I just wish it was a little more diverse. I live in the city of Rochester and I was able to attend Penfield High School through the Urban Suburban program. This programs allows minorities not living in the suburbs to attend school through a transfer program. It is a great program. I've received a great education that has really prepared me for my future in college, I've gained many amazing friends. I hope the program continues to grow and Penfield increases the amount of minority students to make the school even more diverse.

Friendly staff who support you throughout high school! There are opportunities for students to get help every day, clubs for everyone, and amazing grilled bagels.
Penfield High School was an amazing school. It prepared me well for college and for life after high school in general. The teachers were masters in their area of expertise and they provided a well-rounded curriculum to every student who walked through the front doors. As I entered college, I began to understand what a superior education Penfield High School offered. I felt ahead or, at the very least, on track with the college curriculum and my other classmates. The only area Penfield High School needs to work on is their student environment. The school is currently working on this initiative and I look forward to seeing what the next few years brings to this school.
