  • Not only is one of the best when it comes to education, it also has incredible school spirit. One of the states best with sports and America's best when it comes to their extraordinary annual prom. Voted the best in America by Reader Digest. I am PROUD to call my self an alumni of Pennsbury High.

    and the great job they done teaching

  • Pennsbury High School was a positive learning environment overall; despite the problems they encountered, many would be considered normal. Teachers were concerned about their students progress and ability to do well. My philosophy is if the teacher shows they don't care, they shouldn't be there. Pennsbury had offerings other districts did not; such as several choral groups, after-school clubs, summer clubs and more. Sports teams perform well. There were times I disliked this school, though now as I look back to my high school days, I realize I received a golden education that can't be found everywhere.
