I love this school. The teachers and staff are great. Our Kindergarten teacher remains the favorite of the family but all have been fantastic. I am a parent and a PTA board member, I have enjoyed more than 5 years at this school and will miss it immensely when we move on to middle school. The PTA is dwindling in size due to lack of parent participation, as a board member we have tried to encourage parents to get more involved but it has proven to be very difficult. Bring your child and your enthusiasm to this school and help keep the PTA alive at Penrose.
At first we loved the school. The kindergarten teacher was amazing!! Unfortunately now with the first grade teacher, who is still training to be a teacher, shows very little interest in trying with the children or for that matter the parents. Academically we see no issues, but beyond that there seems to be no effort in anything else that has to do with the children (such as emotional or behavioral situations with children). If Teachers are with our kids for 7 hours out of the day there needs to be more there than 2+2.
We were excited for our children to go to this small neighborhood school but have become concerned about the overall quality of the school. There is very little parental involvement. The teachers we have had have been good overall, the art teacher is great and other staff are dedicated and enthusiastic.
