Throughout my four years at Pennridge, I definitely enjoyed myself overall. The staff is very welcoming, and provide a well environment for learning. There are opportunities to get outside, get active and get involved with tons of community projects. However, I noticed over the years that students involved with sports teams, especially football, are favored over others as well as given special academic treatment which I believe to be unfair. Also, this area is a large drug area, and many children at my school became involved with these affairs making it hard to choose well behaved friends. I am proud to have graduated from here, but I hope that they soon pickup some f their slack and begin to value ALL of their students.
Review Pennridge High School
Nice school, mostly good teachers with a select few awesome ones. Overall a good place to be. I enjoyed all the music classes and marching band. Had a blast!
Pennridge High School is a local school in Bucks County. It is generally easy your first year but when you are a senior and about to go to college, they do not prepare you very well. They teach you how to dance but they do not teach you about life skills such as financial aid, how to write a check, what credit is. I had to learn all of that on my own where as I have heard that other schools make a class like that a requirement.
