30 Parent Reviews for Pennsbury High School

Pennsbury High School presents many opportunities, but it is not a particularly nurturing environment so students must rely on their own motivation to get what they want out of it. My daughter had more good teachers than bad ones, found extracurricular activities that sparked her interest and creativity, ...  Read more

The school is fine if you are all honors or AP students. The exextracurricular activities take too much time out of the students, which switched the priority as a student.

Overall, PHS is an average school.

PHS uses two campuses, and students have to travel back ...  Read more

Pennsbury HS comprises well over 3000 students who travel between two buildings separated by the school football field. Previously, it had been segmented as a 9/10 school in one building and an 11/12 school in the other. Plans to reorganize once again are being discussed. The HS has some outstanding ...  Read more
