I grew up in Pennsauken and still live there while im in college. Although I went out of district for highschool, I went to Pennsauken public schools from K-8 and have never had a bad experience with any of the teachers. The elemenatry schools were great (I went to Ben Franklin) and i always exceled in school. Pennsauken is also extremely diverse and has a lot to offer. Growing up my parents always allowed me to walk or ride my bike around town or to school- safety has never been an issue. People are also very friendly and neighbors are welcoming. I am definitely happy to call Pennsauken my home!

Pennsauken possesses an extremely friendly community who strive to further better the environment and the people. I have never had a significantly bad experience with another person in my neighborhood. Additionally, the schools are outstanding; they are filled with determined and amazing teachers who really express their love for teaching and their students. Conclusively, although the township itself is not excessively funded, the people themselves make the experience of living here worth it.
I've lived here for the majority of my life and Pennsauken is just perfect for me and my parents. It is only 15 minutes away from Philadelphia which makes up for our lack of Nightlife. Pennsauken is so diverse that everywhere you go there will be someone that speaks the same foreign language that you do. During the summer I love to go out and run or bike and Cooper river is literally 5 minutes from my home which is a lovely 6 kilometer circle along the river. The only problem is that it is right next to Camden, which has its stereotypes but people from Camden can easily walk into Pennsauken at night so be careful.
