PHS has done well for my son. His class ranks high academically, great school spirit, excellent sports and music programs. Arrival this year of a new principal has been a very positive change along with a new superintendent of the district. High expectations that this positive change will continue in all Penfield schools.

A solid faculty and good facilities but hamstrung by an administration that thinks 'perception is more important than the product.' Distraict has been steadily going downhill since Susan Grey arrived and hopefully will escape the doldrums of her 'leadership' this year.

Excellent academic reputation -- Supt. is very liberal and self-serving -- Principle is not around or available -- teachers and staff other than those mentioned preform above avg. More like a University invironment than a place that cares for special needs -- very hands off.

Penfield High School is an excellent school in every area. The teachers are absolutely amazing and they spend the most possible time making their students the best they can be, and they easily allow students to learn they way they want and need to learn by giving them more oppertunities academically, socially, and creatively. I am currently a senior at PHS, and I had only moved here in May of 05, to finish up my junior year and graduate here. Compared to my old school (One of the Top Schools in CT), I know that this school is better, even if the statistics say less of it. This is a wonderful school and anyone is lucky to have been a student here.

The quality of acedemic programs is great. They have a wide variety of courses for every student and interest. The music and art programs are wonderful, with a lot of options to choose from. The sports is wonderful aswell with a bunch of sports to partisipate in in every season.

My child had social anxiety disorder and all I had to do was ask and I had help from all levels. My second child is gifted and every day he is challenged, they do not accept anything else but your best effort. One of the teachers that truly stands out is John Schembri, he is truly an asset to the school

Penfield High school was a marjor disapointment for me and my family... my son had social anxity disorder and they did little to help with it just made him feel worse to the point where he would get sick finally he left the school. I would not reccomend Penfield school to anyone if you want your child to have a real education send them to a school that cares!
