I really think the staff at Pennell(From Principal to teachers and aids) are doing an awesome job. As a parent I am kept well informed of activities and events .
My son is currently in the 1st grade and I'm highly disappointed. The work assigned isn't challenging enough for my son. I had to request that his teacher send home more challenging homework, so my son doesn't get bored and uninterested in learning. Both my son's kindergarden and first grade teacher agree that he's above average but the curriculum does not expand his inteligence. I have several of his teachers tell me to transfer my son to a better school where he isn't held back by his classmates. My son comes home upset, more often than not, because his class didn't finish their assignment due to behavioral issues. My son takes his education very seriously and he is being held back by other children who aren't interested in learning. Until I can transfer him, I'll continue teaching him more challenging lessons at home outside of what he learns at Pennell.
I love this school, my daughter curently attends the school. I like the fact that the teachers are very involved with the students, as well as the princple. There has been times where I have visted the school and seen how the princple as well as teachers comend the students on a job well done, even for little things as wearing the proper uniform.
pennell is not the school it use to be. my husband when there as a child they had so many activies. they no longer have music,art or sports. i have decided to take my kids out of pupil school and put them in scottland i hear it is a very good school. my 10 year old is very smart and i don't think the school is a challage to him i would love him to have music and some extracurricular.
