Penobscot Valley High School Reviews
I loved the small community and personal connection that we were able to get with the teachers. Having classes that ranged from around a twenty person population to some with only three people in it was a wonderful experience for me, as I got the normal sized classroom with added small, more enjoyable classes. The teachers are all lovely and supportive people, always willing to help their students with anything from home issues to college advice. With this, however, I do not enjoy how this school handles problems such as bullying and political issues that are brought into the school.
What I like about Penobscot Valley High is that almost all of the teachers are always there when needed. If you are struggling, they will always immediately try their best to get you caught up. One thing I would ask of the school to do though, is to add more activities and more electives.
My experience at Penobscot Valley High School was fun. I had a lot of good times and good laughs with my friends and some of the teachers. Many of the teachers along my high school career were fantastic. They would always help out. On the other hand, many of the teachers here were incredibly unhelpful. That includes our guidance councilor, who seemed to slack when it came to helping my classmates and I apply to colleges. Thankfully, other teachers helped us along the way. Besides for that, my time at Penobscot Valley High School was enjoyable.
