Penny Road Elementary Ratings & Reviews

January 07, 2020 Submitted by a parent
Our children have attended Penny Road over the last few years. We have mixed feelings about the school as we have had a few wonderful teachers, but also a couple of really poor ones. The new art teacher is absolutely awful, she is unqualified, and rigid. Our kids who love art now hate art class. She doesn't even have a background in the arts. Kids who used to love art now hate it, and the music teacher, while effective has a tendency to raise her voice and drive off gentler children. The looseness regarding technology, and the ineffective transportation (which the school apparently has no control over) are worrisome. In the last year several beloved employees have left including the school counselor. These are just a handful of the reasons we are looking into magnet schools at this point. It has been a slippery slope under the new principal and administration. While there are many things to love about Penny Road the scales are tipping in the negative direction.

Four of my children have been to Penny Road in the past three years, and we have had teachers in every grade. All of our teachers have been involved and responsive. The PTA is top-notch and provides wonderful support, and many parents are involved both in the classroom and out. Please do not judge the school by its rating on test scores alone. I encourage you to visit and see for yourself why so many parents choose PRE.

I have sent my two kids to this school.

A lot of transition at the school which leaves teachers overworked / unprepared. Too much testing - even in the early age groups. Seems Wake Co is more interested in creating kid factories, rather than teach. The teacher to student ratio at recess is unreasonable and the teachers don't seem engaged. The informational session sold us on the great potential that the school had, but when the rubber meets the road, its definitely lacking. A lot is swept under the rug and hidden. We really were hoping for more at this school, but have been disappointed. Looking to transfer our child out as soon as we can.

I can't say enough good things about Penny Road. We have been at Penny for going on 5 years. We were brand new to North Carolina when my son started kindergarten and they welcomed us with open arms. The staff treat my children as they would treat their own and the teachers are some of the best I know. There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer throughout the school and we have a top notch PTA that provides excellent programs for our kiddo's. Again, I can't say enough, Penny Road will always be a special place to our family!
