    "One thing that I do like about William Penn is the amount of programs that they have at the school. It is the largest high school in Delaware, so it needs to have a good amount of diversity. I would like to see some change in the lunch food even more, because sometimes things weren't cooked all the way. Another thing would be the time to get to our next classes. As someone who has had to walk from one side to the other, it's tough."

    "The teachers would sit down and help you as long as you asked. Patients was abundant, and the students and teachers around made it a family."

    "The teachers and staff are amazing, but I feel like they don't have good control over some of the kids. Like some girls will come to school dressed like they are going to a club. I'm in the music and arts department so we don't get a lot of funding. I would like to see that change because if they actually funded us I believe that the music would sound a lot better. The steel drums that we play haven't been tuned in years because we don't have enough money."

    "My name is keian carr and I am currently apart of William penn's alumni, throughout my 4 years I've received the best education from the wisest teachers and staff. In addition to my journey of I've made many relationships and friends that continue to help and push me each day. William penn is a great school that offers many career paths and positive vibes within the entire school."

    "This school was a great school and while there were some bad teachers (lets be honest, there will always be bad teachers) it greatly prepared me for college. So much so that college so far (going into second year now) seems easy. Overall you will have great teachers that take time to get to know you and know what they are teaching rather than just teaching out of a book."
