It's a small town, it goes without saying that- yes there is drama- but there are a lot of people that know each other and care for one another. There is always someone to find or go to when you need help, and sometimes there are places you can go to to get away from it all when you need to calm down. Everyone here is generally caring and loves to help when and if they can.

The arts programs, while not with the best funding, are a place where every and any student is accepted for who they are and supported in their endeavors. The many clubs opened up possibilities for student with anxiety about public speaking to open up and learn to be confident in themselves. All sports participants are enthusiastic and encourage others to be as well.
Penn Yan was overall a good school. I wish they had offered more opportunities to students as far as clubs, college readiness and experiences.
