I am currently a senior in Pennsauken High and all I can say is I had a great time here in this school.

Pennsauken High is not a good school at all and I am very surprised it even got 3 stars and a 2 out of 10 rating ...This is not because of the parents ..teachers ...or any adult in general but the students themselves ...they all want to be what their not and feel as though violent acts and 'drama' is ...  Read more

Either the Board of Education need to be revamped or Pennsauken H.S. principal. This school is really getting to be the bottom of the pit. I am experienceing this first hand with my son who attends there now. I am so disappointed in the way things are run now compared to when my oldest daughter attended ...  Read more
