My son started kindergarten this year, and the teacher, principal, yard duty, other parents have all been amazingly supportive and the school community has such a wonderful feel to it. Love their philosophy about everything from academics to homework to social development.

This school has been, without a doubt, exactly what my child and our family needed. The principal is extremely involved, accessible, and knows the students by name. There is an overall focus on positive behavior recognition as opposed to going straight to punitivie measures. Academics are on point, and technology is responsibly integrated into each grade level appropriately. Plus, Penngrove starts each morning with Penn in Motion - a school-wide gathering on the blacktop that gets kids (and parents) exercising and dancing. Too fun, plus it has been shown to help improve focus and acheivement - definitely has helped our child! Our experiences with the teachers have been remarkable - they all really want to be there, are very well trained, and are consistent across the grade levels in their behavior expectations. I wish there was a school like this when I was in elementary school!!! After touring every school in CRPUSD and a few others in Petaluma, we are so, so thankful to be a part of the Penngrove family.

My son began at Penngrove Elementary mid-year last year after we moved. We immediately felt welcomed and part of the small Penngrove Elementary community. The school offers so many things for the students including: P.E., Gardening, Music, Penngrove In Motion, and much, much more. The teachers and staff are absolutely fantastic and care about each student. At least once a month a school event is offered to the students and families (Pancakes and Pajamas, Back to School BBQ, Fall Festival, Ice Cream Social, etc.). I cannot recommend this school enough to anyone considering it. Go Panthers!!

We love the teachers and support staff. Some tech stuff is not for our family, but we appreciate the option to choose what is appropriate for our children.

Choosing an elementary school for my son was one of the most stressful decisions I've ever made. I did not sleep for weeks wondering if I had made the right choice after visiting every school in a 30 mile radius. Penngrove has beyond surpassed my expectations. I am at the school volunteering every week so I see the way the children a treated from staff with my own eyes. Everyone at the school is kind, intelligent and has the children's best interest at heart. My son got into some trouble the first month of school and I was concerned about what happened. The principal, as well as our K teacher, took an hour out of their afternoon to talk with me and I left feeling all warm an fuzzy, knowing that they wanted what was best for him as much as I did. The atmosphere at Penngrove Elementary is always bright and cheery, the kids are happy and well cared for. My son has learned more than I ever expected for kindergarten, but he never seems stressed, only excited about all he knows now. I never thought I would feel comfortable with someone else caring for my son and Penngrove has proved me wrong, I cannot say enough about how much I LOVE this school!
