I have two children currently enrolled at Pennington and they are both doing great. The principal who started this year is very accesible and he seems to care very much for the well being of the students and the future growth of the school. There is a new addition to the school building being completed and portions of the existing building were improved prior to this school year. My children are learning quickly and adore their teachers. The PTA is very involved and do a great job to welcome all parents. I believe this school has great days ahead and I hope local families will consider it over sending their children to local private schools as the neighborhood will thrive if it’s residents know one another and watch their kids grow up together.

This school is wonderful. They have teachers with experience that care for the students. I like that the teachers are willing to take the time and listen to any concerns you may have. Then there is the principal and assistant principal they are both amazing. They are doing a great job with the students as well as keeping parents informed. They are always available to assist you. My boys love it here.
Excellent school, there are a great deal of activities, the PTA is very active and encourages families to be active. The principals and teachers are nice. They are remodeling the school. The temporary playground is awesome and the new one will be even better.
