Pennsbury High School Reviews
I love the sense of school pride at Pennsbury. There really is nothing like it. We have sporting teams that are some of the best in the state, and we pride ourselves on that. We have an amazing athletics department thanks to amazing coaches, school support, and student pride. Go Falcons!
Pennsbury High School deserves an excellent rating. Since this high school thrives in persevering, embracing diversity, exemplifying kindness, advocating from person to person in the school, and cultivating many friendly relationships, it (all schools within the Pennsbury School District) has received a National School of Character Award. Thus, Pennsbury High School is THE high school to attend.
It depends on the teacher! And there are so many! For the most part I've been blessed with teachers who truly care about their work and field of study. Teachers in the honors- and AP-level generally try to challenge you "above and beyond" (a phrase I've heard a lot), and taking higher-level thinking and learning seriously. They really want to teach you the best they can. Most teachers will try to make themselves available after-school for extra help, test make-ups, etc. They are also very conversational and try to keeps students engaged in learning. I can think of some teachers, however, mostly in the parelell/academic (standard, not honors/AP) field who are lazy or have outdated teaching methods or are poor at communication or academic application and are unable to effectively reach students. In my experience, teachers really try hard to grade fairly, have their own well-thought out grading methods, in addition to what is already set by the department, and give students opportunities to redeem themselves and succeed in their classes. Most teachers really want to prepare students for the future, both in education and in life, from AP English to math to music to gym.
