    "Pennsbury High School presents many opportunities, but it is not a particularly nurturing environment so students must rely on their own motivation to get what they want out of it. My daughter had more good teachers than bad ones, found extracurricular activities that sparked her interest and creativity, and seems to be reasonably well prepared for college. But I think it is possible for students who are less confident or clear on their needs to fall thru the cracks of the huge community. The few times I felt the need to advocate on her behalf, the administration responded quicklyand appropriately."

    "This school is absolutely terrable. there are almost no teachers who will help/ work with you without giving you attitude. there are many fights and people cursing and drama going on. I feel that i have learned nothing throughout all my years here. there are bugs all over the school. I was afraid to even put feet on the ground because of all the ants and other bugs there are. there are cockroaches in the bathrooms and its a unhealthy and unsafe environment for kids and teachers to be in. Walking in between buildings can be nice when its warm but its brutal when its cold. Even if its cold and below freezing they will still make you walk. even if there are busses theres only about 5 to transport every kid and than you get introuble for being late to class. the teachers are conceited. I have friends who go to other schools and they seem to never have any problems like pennsbury does. If you are at a disadvantage with learning disabilities or have money issues pennsbury gives you problems and wont work with you to be more succesful. they sometimes will give you homework to do online and if you dont have a computer they wont give you credit. pennsbury is a terrable school. dont go there"

    "The school is fine if you are all honors or AP students. The exextracurricular activities take too much time out of the students, which switched the priority as a student. Instead of spending more time on academic work, the students spent more time in exextracurricular activities, i. e. the "famous" marching band takes at least 20hours/week in September, at least 30hours/week (couple times around 40hours) in October and November. They leave the poor kids no time to manage even though the exextracurricular activities suppose to help the kids to learn how to manage their time."

    "Very good school, though not quite the level of nearby richer Council Rock area high schools. Old building, although well maintained. Pennsbury still has the same gym from when the school was built back in the mid 1960's. It's an embarrassment, considering the modern gyms in other schools in the area. There are issues with the teacher's contracts at times. They have a very good wage and benefit package, which sometimes comes into play at contract negotiation time, when the union is asking for more or the board is asking for concessions. A couple of strikes over the years. Overall, good teaching staff, yet some of the older ones are just putting in time until retirement."

    "As parents, we are very happy with the Pennsbury High School. This school offers every AP class, and has great arts and sciences. Their programs are top notch and well organized - i.e. world class marching band, young engineers / programming clubs, full set of athletic programs, etc. School pride is very evident, and I always get a good feeling when I'm around the students. For whatever reason, the students I meet are always well mannered and show good respect to adults. This speaks volumes for the school leadership - almost like a "we expect more" attitude. This is great to see as a parent."
