Pennsbury High School Reviews
Pennsbury High School is a great place to be with our academic, sports, and PEACE challenge. It challenges the mind and the teachers really do care about our future. They prepare us really well for the world. The only thing that isn’t the greatest is that it is such a big school that you never meet everyone there. Also you don’t form a close relationship with administration because of how large the school is. However, Pennsbury is a great school that treats people with kindness and has lots of diversity!
Overall, it was highschool. That's the best way to explain my experience at Pennsbury. High school, as all High schoolers know, it isn't as pretty as the movies, some teachers are understanding of what students need, while others are selfish and expect the most out of you in that one class. The aids within Pennsbury feel like prison guards waiting for you to do something wrong, but as you become an upperclassman you learn to crawl around those situations and get out of it or just learn not to care. The only unique quality about my High school is that it is one of the biggest High schools within the area, a little under 4,000 students, which I believe has its negatives and positives. On the one hand, you get to meet new people in every class you have, on the other the guidance counselors can not help you up to their fullest abilities due to them having to see so many students a day. Overall, my experience was good at best.
As such a large school, Pennsbury offered a multitude of niches in which students could feel a part of a greater whole, whether it be through sports, academic clubs, advocacy clubs, volunteer clubs, language clubs, student council, prom com, etc. Although I can only speak for myself, I feel that Pennsbury always offered opportunities to challenge myself academically, whether it be through academic competitions, AP classes, or "Gifted" classes. I believed Pennsbury had an overall strong staff and curriculum that prepared me well for university. That being said, one thing I think that could be improved upon is the history/ social studies curriculum. Too much emphasis is placed on learning American history over and over, and I feel that many students leave high school without a good sense of historical orientation in the world.
