its not the school its some of the children who go to the school make it bad , the children at william penn are loud and disrespectful unfortunately my son who is entering high school this fall must attend due not being selected to any of the schools that i had applied for him its a shame that a bunch of rotten apples can make a school have a bad name , all i can say is bless the ones like my son who have to be around therotten apples who do not want to learn but fight and curse and give the teachers and staff a hard time only if the parents could see thier children they would be very disturberd with their children action,

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
