    "When I was there all the teachers were very nice and they take their time to explain stuff like assignments and etc, to kids with disabilities like me. They have prepared me for the real world as much as they could. I enjoyed going to school there and being around the staff teachers and my friends. I graduated from there on June 7, 2016. I learned a lot from being in the school. I am very grateful to have went ti school there with teachers and staff willing to help you when yoy need it. No other school would have gave me all thar help and etc,. In the other schools I been too, if i had stayed at them i would not have graduated in time. Thank You, Pen Argyl high school for helping me succeed in teaching and completing my goals and helping me understand stuff so I could graduate on time. Pen Argyl Area High School is the only reason that I gave graduated from the on time and for shaping me to become the women i am today"

    "I graduated from Pen Argyl Area High School last summer as the valedictorian. When I started to attend college, I realized how helpful the high school courses were in preparing my college. The chemistry lab really helped me understand how labs work, and the economics course prepared me for the vocabularies that would be useful in later courses. AP credits freed me from some college courses. I highly recommend Pen Argyl Area High School!"

    "Pros: School spirit, football, sports, some teachers are pretty good and caring, math classes, science classes (kinda- no AP sciences unless that has changed which it could have), (few) business classes Cons: Only offer 5ish AP classes, few extracurricular activities other than sports that students actually want to be involved in, absolutely no media, communication, TV, etc. classes, no freedom for students (seniors can't leave during lunch unless that has changed), out-of-date dress code (for real is it still 1970 in their mind?), very poor preparation for the real world for students choosing not to attend college, students bully a lot (but this is at most schools to be fair), a huge lack of diversity 95% white (not the school's fault, but I'm considering a con because meeting people different than you can make you more culturally aware contrary to what PA believes), teachers use out-of-date teaching methods with little technology (that was 3 years ago so maybe it has changed)."

    "The best part of the academics at this school was the teachers. As far as the cirriculum goes, not much variety was offered or recommended. The scheduling process and workload was managable and it was fairly easy to get the help needed. The most popular classes were yearbook and anything to do with woodshop because there was not much structure."
    Topic: Student Culture & Diversity | Rating:
    Posted 2016-09-01
    "I believe that overall, most student attending this school are involved in some way, shape, or form. I do not think that the students are very accepting of other cultures, ethnicities, races, and or sexual orientation as the majority of the school consists of white, heterosexual males and females."
