It's a great school with great teacher!

Amazing teachers, great principal. Really good with Special Needs kids.The only reason I can't give 5 stars is that one on their Administration staff is extremely intolerant and rude to single, non-traditional parents.

My daughter started attending Pennington her PreK year. Now a 5th grader and one month left until summer break and she goes onto 6th grade. I have liked almost every teacher, although 3rd and 4th grade I feel she wasn't encouraged to push ahead. All her previous teachers had been awesome at providing an individual learning plan that allowed her to advance. The 5th grade teacher, teaching his first year at Pennington, has lots of teaching experience and I believe he has been doing awesome with the kids. I have heard some parents complain about bullying, but I have seen the school and community here hold a zero tolerance and encourage parents to approach any issue immediately, the Principal, counselor and staff are readily available to be contacted and give support. I'm afraid bullying is a sensitive subject, but ultimately takes the whole community, home life, peers etc... In teaching our kids to be confident, compassionate and responsible individuals in society.

"My daughter has gone to this school for 5 years. She has had 3 really great teachers and one just ok one. The first principal Mr. Cormier was really terrific and a hard act to follow. The recent one, Mrs. Craig, was a little bumpy at first but seems to be doing well now, and is very enthusiastic and accessible to all students and parents. My daughter has been testing advanced in both reading and math, and this is a warm and friendly small community school. It is mainly low-income families, but the school itself is not ""ghetto."" They have art, gym, and music. My main criticism is they aren't very focused on science or have school plays. They are very reading and math driven. She has had quite a lot of special ed kids on IEPs in her classes (around 6 students per class of 15-20 kids), so I think any low scores reflect this. They do promote parent involvement. There is an awesome parent run after school program called step up which is like yearbook, but video and photography focused. My daughter loves her school, even though she's had the normal social issues kids go through (girl drama, a bully, etc...) I would not recommend the YMCA aftercare however."
