    "I liked that the school wasn't that big, so I was able to form close friendships with the people in my classes and my teachers were fairly attentive. What I didn't like was that because the school wasn't very big, when they started moving more students into the Green Avenue campus, it became very cramped. We only had 30 minutes for lunch, but some people couldn't even get their lunches until the end of the period because the lines were so long."

    "This high school has so much potential to outstand all the other high schools but the environment and people are what's preventing the strong growth. Many of these people have no desire to excel in academics giving off a bad vibe of the school. Many of these people are also very disrespectful to the teacher staff and administrators. Safety is a big topic brought up in this school. Many of these security guards will not do their jobs unless their supervisor is directly watching them. The high school could be so much better if the mindsets of the students about school is changed, a more organized administration, willing-to-work dedicated staff, and etc."

    "Penn Wood High School has taught me so much academically and socially. They have really good teachers who care about the education of their students and seeing their students succeed. Some of the things that need to change about the school is the way they deal with the athletes and the after school activities. They should look into getting study hall for every sports team and not just one or two."

    "My experience was probably just like most other high school students. I came to school followed my everyday routine for four straight years had favorite teachers and teachers I just had to learn from and teachers who's classes were struggled in but you were still thankful for having them as your teacher. I like the overall environment around penn wood. Whenever I saw a new student I always saw a guidance intern helping them around to classes and just a friend to start out with in general because we all know that can be tough. The one thing I wish I could change about penn wood is the amount of money the district had if I could and I'll happily give back to the school when I can do so myself, however I feel as tho the students can excel so much farther if they had close to the resources that an upper class school might have."
