About this school

Penelope is a fantastic place for children. While very rural, every classroom is advanced technologically. The staff is very well trained and intent on teaching kids. We are still focused on teaching kids and not tests. We get to know the individual and we cater to individual needs. Everyone fits in! Despite our rural setting and small school, we have kids graduating with 24 college credits. We pay for all of it. The kids in Penelope don't even pay for school supplies!
