  • I was a student here in the year of 2007/2008. Mr Winter is one of the best principles I've ever had, and I had attended 3 different high schools. Each one of the teachers is dedicated to their students, and love what they do.

  • * Tim Winter is by far the best principal i have seen in the 4 years i have attended Peninsula. Besides him I also experienced Mrs. Scott and That one old guy.
    *I feel like some of the after school stuff is lacking.
