Pennington School Ratings & Reviews

We have had an excellent school experience on all levels across the board. Staff is energetic, caring, and highly qualified. There is open communication with faculty and administration and kids are happy!

I disagree with many who have left bad reviews. When it comes to judging the PTA I would definitely question if those who spoke negatively ever volunteered or gotten involved enough to learn more about where the donations go and the hurdles that are needed to be jumped to get things done. These ladies spend a TON of their time making the school a better place and are always in need of extra help. When it comes to curriculum I am satisfied. My son tests above his class and multiple programs are in place to keep up with his pace including ATLAS and Enrichment. I would strongly recommend the people who are leaving negative reviews educate themselves on what actually is available at this great school. On the negative side - communication between the administration and teachers... thus parents is horrible.

Let me start of by saying I am an adult would benefited from Mount Vernon School District K-12. And yes I graduated MVHS with honors starting from the south side elementary school. When I moved to the north side my child was briefly enrolled here and I wouldn’t recommended it. This school is a testament to the segregation of the town. Yes children from the south side are allowed through a lottery to attend Pennington. I know this because my aunt’s kids were briefly enrolled. But she quickly took her children out of the school because she felt that teachers and staff did not treat them fairly. When I daughter entered the school she was coming from a Montessori school and could already read, write, and do math at higher grade level than most 5 yr. olds . However when I looked at the diversity of the classroom I was appalled .They used to say when I was kid you had to “look” a certain way to be in this school and sadly things haven’t changed.

Like most parents in the neighborhood, we tried Pennington, but ended up going private last year. Prospective families should know that kids from all over Mount Vernon can and do attend; not just kids from the zoned neoghborhood. Academics consist of nothing more than worksheets printed right off the engageny.org website, and about 25% of my child's class was pulled out for extra math and/or reading support, which was disruptive. There is no challenge or creativity at all. Teachers are middle-aged zombies who have not updated their classroom techniques in ten or twenty years. Behaviorially, they have unrealistic expectations of 5 and 6 year-old children. They punish liberally and yet behavior problems abound. They haven't discovered positive reinforcement as tool for good behavior. The principal is rarely visible. Just a mess.
