My kids started attending Penn Wood this school year. I have one in K and one in 1st grade. Both kids LOVE the school, their teachers and their principal. I have also spoken with the teachers and principal on several occassions and you can tell that they care about the school and the children deeply. My 1st grader is a gifted child and had trouble at his prior school when he was in K becasue he was bored with the topics. He is not bored at Penn Wood and is not getting in trouble. His teacher raves about him. I LOVE Penn Wood.

I have a child that has special educational needs. I have been so impressed with Penn Wood and the principle, Dr. Gacomis. They have handled our specific needs with great attention and care from Kindergarten on. My experience with Penn Wood has exceeded my expectations. I love this school.

There is a mutual respect between students and teachers/administrators and parents are very encouraged to be involved in the classroom. Top school.
