As parents of a Pennington School “lifer,” my husband Samir and I have witnessed unimaginable growth and development in our son over the course of the last seven years. The School has given him the opportunity to reach beyond his comfort zone and explore and strengthen his interests. From competing in an unfamiliar sport, trying out for a theater production, or writing a research paper, we have felt that the School, and everyone that embodies its values, has always had our son’s best interest in mind.

The advisory program at the School is exemplary. Every year our son has benefitted from a dedicated faculty advisor whose role is to guide and mentor. The advisors have the right balance of a nurturing spirit with the goal of fostering independence and ownership of responsibility. They go the extra mile to ensure that each student has the confidence to succeed in school, in the community at large, and in life.

We could not be happier with The Pennington School and all it has done for our son and family!
