Overall this school is not of a high caliber in my personal opinion. I give this school two stars only because one teacher stands out - one male 4th grade teacher - as someone who genuinely cares about his students education.

Penn Elementary School is a very good school. Here my son has become more confident in himself, his studies improved greatly and I found the school to be safe. This is a nice neighborhood.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
