This school works well for students whose parents are willing to curry favor with the administration. It maintains high ratings by kicking out the kids who don't fit in.

When you get to the point that you and your teenager cannot agree on how to move ahead through high school, Mid-Pen steps in and provides a safe environment for teenagers to address their "issues" without the family confrontations. Wise and caring faculty guide students via a stong advisory program. ...  Read more

The high school experience shouldn't be about survival, hoping to emerge in four years with an acceptance letter to college. Mid-Pen understands this. It provides a solid college-preparatory program, but the emphasis is on the here and now, not on what's going to happen after high school. Students ...  Read more

Success! What a joy it is to have a child come home to tell me that it was a great day again! Mid-Pen has offered enough structure for learning to take place along with a complementary flexibility to meet my child's needs. Stress has been replaced with enthusiasm and an interest in her academics. ...  Read more

Our son was having a difficult time in the Palo Alto public schools, primarily because of the large class size. He really needed some individual attention.

Students who attend Mid-Pen come from all over the Bay Area. My son is in 9th grade and takes Cal Train to school from San Jose.

In middle school, he would not do his homework and he tried his best to get out of going to school. Things I like: ...  Read more

My son attends Mid-Penn High at Menlo Park. Within a semester, his GPA has gone up, he is more involved in a school team sport (since Mid-Penn does not cut anybody!!) and seems much happier about school overall. I would strongly recommend this school if your child is not happy at a public school. Not ...  Read more

My son is a Junior this year at Mid-Pen and he couldn't be happier. He never wanted to go to a large high school because he had some anxiety about large groups, getting lost and not having teachers who really knew him and cared about him. At Mid-Pen, he is not lost in any sense of the word and the teachers ...  Read more
