  • Thanks to all of the hard working teachers and assistance teachers and the nurses and not to forget the principal! My son was below 3 grade average until he join tenth and penn, he was greeted with respect and felt like a human bieng in this facility. My son is working very hard for his excellent grades thanks to his teachers and me and his mom he's able to be in a regular class learning with the best, I'm very happy because I thought that he was not going to improve to his abilities bieng below average. I want to give a big thanks to tenth and penn for all the good work.
