Pennridge High School Reviews

Pennridge provides many different opportunities for different kinds of students. The majority of teachers I've had experience with are knowledgeable and care about their jobs. However, the administration seems to be disconnected from the student body and teachers and views the school body as more of a series of statistics instead of as individual people. Athletics are overall very good and there are plenty of different classes for individual academic needs. Due to the area, Pennridge is not exactly the most diverse and the facilities provided are starting to become a little too small for the growing student body. Overall, the school does a decent job of preparing students for college or their next stage in life.

My Experience at Pennridge High School in retrospective, was a very good experience. Freshman year I did well. My History class I managed to get 100% all throughout the year while maintaining average scores in the rest of my classes. Sophomore was the most difficult year for me as I just didn't understand or had the willingness to try in Physics and I had to swim for PE (I hate swimming).
Junior year was more lax as I had the opportunity to take Music Tech and really understand what I wanted to do in the future as a musician.
My final year as a Senior was really my definitive school year as I was able to branch myself out like I never did in the prior years.
Thought school, the classes/years I excelled in were largely due to the teachers I had then. Without their support, I wouldn't have gotten to where I am today
Pennridge High School was a decent experience. The building itself was recently revamped within the last ten years, so the facilities are new and updated. The faculty that I've had were great teachers as all of them were always open when it came to questions or extended help on school work. Pennridge also has a lot of clubs and activities for all different type of students to get involved in. There is a lack of diversity in which being a person of color was a hard thing to adjust and relate to other peers. Pennridge should focus on some of those issues so that their whole student body feels a part of something in some way. . Safety of the school is great, as there are always door guards in the morning and during dismissal. Overall, I'm glad and privileged that I've had the pleasure of growing up in this school district. Pennridge creates great foundations for students entering college and or leaving to enter into adulthood.
