I sent my student to Pennington after hearing other parents talk about the small, tight community. It's such a unique school, my daughter loves it there and has been soaring academically! with only 3 classrooms per grade, uniforms, a focus on instilling pride in their students, requiring parent involvement, and interactive teaching it's a gem that most parents don't know about.

I only had one teacher that I actually considered a teacher. I had teachers that lost my papers, teachers that displayed heavy favoritism, teachers that left the classroom for hours. Grading was never consistent, friends used to copy my essay and turn it in and we would never get caught. Throughout the year mostly taught myself. I made a big deal of it in 6th grade but since all the teachers were horrible I thought maybe I'm just overreacting, wasn't until high school I realized how teachers are actually supposed to teach.
We love our school!!! It is not for everyone with uniforms it’s run more like a private school. The staff is awesome and caring!!
