This school is truly an exceptional school. The administrative staff goes above and beyond to make both parent's and students feel comfortable. Both my children attend here and throughout 5 years I have been nothing but pleased. The teachers are wonderful and make an effort to get to know everyone....even the students that aren't in their class. There is a great mix of fun and learning while remaining organized.

An excellent school! It doesn't get any better than this! The principal, teachers, and staff are phenomenal. They are caring, concerned and dedicated people. I'm a parent whose 3rd child is currently in this school. I have been a part of this school community for 8 years now and I have never had a complaint! Truly a gem!

Penn Forest Elementary is by far the best elementary school in the county! We had to move to another district and I have not been impressed. From the girls in the front office to the principal and teachers this staff is top notch!!
