Penn (William) High School Ratings & Reviews

I would rate this school a negative zero. NO wonder the children are performing below average and Penn is one of the worst schools in the school district. They need to start looking at making changes from the top up. I was told yesterday that when you are good friends or having good relationship with those that run the district then basically they can do what ever they want

As a senior student attending the University of Delaware I feel that my experiences at William Penn High school were subpar. After graduating from William Penn and transitioning into college I did not feel as though I was adequately prepared for this substantial change. Although I took most honors and AP classes offered at this school, teachers often focused on expecting the bare minimum from students; thus producing poor results.Despite the school's diverse population there seems to be a continuous "tracking" of colored students with an emphasis on strict and consistent punishment of black and hispanic students in comparison to that of their white peers. This school inevitably demonstrates a school-to-prison pipeline that consequently will not produce college and career ready students.

Love the staff! Teachers are dedicated and smart and want success for their students. My children are in the AP and honors classes.... would not be able to pay for a better education. The private schools can not offer anything more for my children. One child has graduated and is attending one of the top universities in country.

I'd like to start by saying WP is not all that great. I'm going to be a senior next year and I sometimes wish I had picked a different school. It's mostly the administrator staff that ruins the experience. The principle there cares nothing more about the students than what they wear. He doesn't care if they're a good student that gets A's and B's he'll pick them out of a crowd and write them up for wearing a 'gang affiliated' bandannas. The teachers are to be commended however. I have never gotten a 'bad' teacher. They all do their job and do it well, though you may hear different about *some* teachers. I feel like the school could improve on their choice of principles and administrator staff and possibly the overall cleanliness? (There's roaches, mice and rats nearly in each room. The rooms don't look like they've been properly cleaned in years even) I wont even go into the students, a good majority of them aren't even worth mentioning.
