  • Why are there no reviews on line? I attended the Pennell School in the 50's, and my parents were active in the PTA, so what gives now? I made it from Pennell to Central HS to Penn, and out of Philly after that, but I still love my Eagles, and cheese steaks, and all that. But where are the other alumni, and the current parents and PTA? Come one, does it take an old white guy Philly expatriate to motivate the current generation? Get with it, and give the school the spirit it used to have, and still deserves. These are your kids. Just do it.
