Penquis is an okay school for both social and learning aspects. I am actually homeschooled now, but I went to Penquis for two years. It is a very nice building, very clean and tidy. There is only about two hundred two hundred and fifty students there. Most of the teachers were pretty okay. Learning there wasn't the easiest because you didn't really get one-to-one time with someone if you needed help. I would love it if the teachers would focus on the kids struggling and help them.

Penquis Valley High School is a close-knit school where you are familiar with nearly everybody around you. The classes are small, which gives you a chance to get to know your teachers personally. The only thing that I would change is the approach on portfolios and the crazy schedule.
My school was combined with the middle school. For most people that means the 5-8th grade but for Penquis that was 7-8 in one wing of the school and 9-12 in another wing. All together the school still had less than 300 students, which most people had in their graduating class. Being from such a small school you really get to know everyone and get to be friends with everyone. There wasn't a person in my class that I didn't know almost everything about, and couldn't on a random Tuesday sit down and eat lunch with them as if I had sat with them all year.
