Penn can seem intimidating from the size and number of students, but this school isn't as scary as it seems. The school also has begun using Chromebook laptops (2014-2015 ...  Read more

Its would be hard for anyone school to handle so many kids. Penn is not doing all they could do to make the school a safe place to be. Its not a place where the teachers or staff will know who the students are or even try to.I guess if you scored a winning shot on the team you might be recognized but ...  Read more

Entering as a freshman who had just experienced cancer, I was worried that I wouldn't be accepted because of my lack of hair. To my surprise, fitting in was natural; and for a fairly keep-to-myself kind of kid, I was glad it worked out that way. The teachers are great (with a few exceptions, of course) ...  Read more

I am an alumnus from 2002. I can't imagine having gone to a school where I would have had more opportunities.

Wonderful experience for my two son's who have graduated. Three more to go. My daughter is a sophmore at Penn now and she loves it. Great education. If you want tough classes, school spirit and great athletics, Penn will meet your expectations.

I am a parent of two alums. They were exceedingly well prepared for college. One has now graduated from law school and received a fellowship to Cambridge. The other was accepted into the best music universities in the US. What I appreciated most was the district's commitment to preparing the "whole" ...  Read more

I just graduated in May, and I believe that Penn is one of the best schools in Indiana. I am now a music education major, and during my time at Penn, I learned so much, and they prepared me so well for what I am doing now. From an academic standpoint, I was challenged greatly. I was involved in numerous ...  Read more
