"My son is so happy here. He wants to be involved in everything and it is actually difficult to tear him away at the end of the day. That is probably the best way to describe how great this environment is--what more could you ask for in a school?"

"Our family has resided in Mercer County since the 1930s and we were unaware of The Pennington School's positive contributions to many African-American students' educational and athletic achievements. Through our son, we have witnessed firsthand the School's commitment to educational excellence, diversity of community, humility, and athletic empowerment."

"It's been a fabulous experience for us. I find that my son found his equilibrium here; it's the right amount of challenge yet it's the right amount of flexibility to be himself and to be a kid at the same time."

"The Pennington campus is well organized with a strong academic atmosphere. The School takes care of the needs of students with different backgrounds, such as the spring festival dinner that the School provides for the Chinese students every year, which makes me feel that I have sent my child to live in a big family rather than a boarding school!"
