1 review for Pen Argyl Area High School

  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on October 29, 2010
  • Rating: 4 (4 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Moving to this area from the Midwest we found this school district to be a good fit for our needs.

    The classes are small and the school allows for individual attention. Not being a "mega-school" our children are able to have more extracurricular activities.

    The academics are sound; however we would have liked to see more AP opportunities. Honors courses are offered throughout, but AP opportunities are offered almost exclusively at the senior level.
