Learning in Motion

Check out the video below, Where I am From, created by a sophomore English student.

This student synthesizes the books she read during the year and shows how they helped her understand more about herself. Another student in a music composition class saw this video and was inspired to compose an original soundtrack to add beat and rhythm to his classmate's story. We believe this dynamic demonstration of learning speaks volumes about the individual learning process that is at the core of the Pennington experience.

We believe that our students are remarkable.

We really know our students-- as participants in our classrooms and athletes on our teams, artists in our studios, and actors on our stages. They are the avid readers who notice that untold stories await in the science labs. They are the lifetime soccer players who realize that kicking for the football team would offer new challenges. They are the actresses who discover that directing allows them to continue their passion while honing their leadership skills.

Pennington students are people who think for themselves, who care deeply about discovery and learning, and who have an eye on the future.

When new students arrive at Pennington, they wonder, “Who will I become?” It is the Pennington experience that helps them to answer that question.

We invite you to visit The Pennington School for a glimpse into all that makes up the Pennington experience! Talk with our teachers, listen to our students’ stories, see our campus, and start asking yourself, “Who will I become?” We look forward to welcoming you!
