Penn Trafford High School Reviews
Penn-Trafford is an all around great school that is very athletics oriented. There are many great teachers that truly care about the students and their education. The school also has various types technology available for the students to aide in learning and elective classes. The English and Science department are outstanding. However, as mentioned earlier there are many teachers that are great, but some do lack in how they treat students. Favoritism is a common thing in the classroom and I think they could improve the math department but otherwise those are the only problems I had!
My three years at Penn-Trafford High School have comprised a wonderful experience. All of the teachers are thoroughly passionate about their work and make helping students their first priority. Moreover, the administration is very open to student ideas regarding new clubs and organizations and seems to handle all issues very well. I walk into school every day and am assured that the constant police presence keeps me and my peers safe. A recent renovation has rendered the facilities beyond stellar, and the students desire few things beyond a solid education.
Penn Trafford High School excels in providing anything you could ever imagine. Academics is where the school really stands out. Having the knowledge provided by grade A teachers is something that everyone that goes here should be proud of. Safety is definitely a top priority to PT. They try to work out the best possible ways to ensure that students can feel safe in school, while getting a great education. PT is one of those schools that you can not afford to pass up if you have the opportunity to attend. People that have college readiness is evident in many students that graduate here.
