This high school prepared me very well for college! The content I learned in my years there was higher standard that prepared more for more intense college work. I was also impacted by many kind and caring teachers who were passionate about their subjects and were good at teaching and helping students learn. Overall there could have been better administrative policies to help with student issues and safety and promotion of clubs. School cleanliness and food could have been improved however the school is newly renovated and I have not been back to see the improvements. All in all I am glad I attended Penn Manor and although it wasn't the best at times it well prepared me for my future academic career.

The academics at the school are amazing! Student interaction on the other hand could use a boost. The administration runs things moderately well, but could focus less attention on sports and more on other departments.
I think that the students at Penn Manor could get a long a little better. I also think that Penn Manor could REALLY shrink the size of it's HS. It's huge! I know that they are currently working on fixing that, and I cannot wait to see the completed school!
