South Penn Elementary School Reviews

1 review
This is my sons 2nd year here after attending a private school since pre-k. I have not any issues myself, but he has complained about some "mean teachers" & is a shy kid that has been bullied some so only has a few friends- i do like that they place kids together at lunch, so no one is left out. Also, the after school program gives him more socialization & some learning experiences. The only issue I personally have is that this year they are not as "parent friendly", for example: Meet the teacher night was at 3pm...or the after school mandatory parent nights. Many parents are at work, and have to take off to attend these.
