We've been going to The Pen Ryn School for almost 8 years and two kids. Can't say enough about the small classes and nurturing environment. Our third will be going once he's old enough!

Everyone here at Pen Ryn knows my daughter by name. She is so happy being here and is constantly involved and engaged.

Pen Ryn is more than a school to us. It is a place where my children feel at home. They are loved and nurtured and treated with respect. It is a place in which my children have grown tremendously and I am so glad that we have had the opportunity to work with such amazing and caring teachers and staff.

My step daughter attends this school. I was shocked at how old the building is from the late fifties. They have no air conditioning, everything seems out dated. They have a lack of activities that aren't geared towards fundraising.



- a
I really enjoy how small the class sizes are here at The Pen Ryn School. It really allows for the students to get the individual attention that they deserve.




- a
The Pen Ryn School provides such a strong academic learning foundation for all of their students. Everyone who works here are all very nurturing as well as caring.

Great teachers, but administration is shaky at best. Very little top down support for the teachers; they do what they can with what they are given. Pen Ryn touts itself as a "nurture" school, but in reality, you are only nurtured if you are sycophantic towards the administration or have 4 kids at the school. Traditions are very important at Pen Ryn and the present administration has very little regard for sacrifices made by those in the past. They care less about tradition or history and more about filling seats. There is much potential for growth here, however. There is going to be a change in leadership at Pen Ryn at the end of this school year and, hopefully, its for the better.



- a
My school has the most nurturing environment. Every child in the world should have the same experience in school that the Pen Ryn students have.

My son started at Pen Ryn in kindergarten and is now in fourth grade. One thing that has always stuck out to me about Pen Ryn is their ability to stay up to date with technology. My son raves about the smart boards and he loves playing with the iPads. It's great because not only does he enjoy working with these devices, but he's enjoying learning - which I could not be happier about. He's receiving a high level education and having fun at the same time.



- a
The school seems to be going downhill something awful and people are noticing. Such a shame! Most of the experienced teachers are gone and were replaced with cheap teachers . Some of the teachers need major attitude adjustments, but the leaders do nothing. The academics are nothing special whatsoever. The administration seems to be a lot of spin and politics rather than really caring about the school and the education of young children. Save your money. (Some of these great reviews must be fake or from people with preschoolers who haven't seem the poor quality awaiting them in older grades.)
