Micah B., Class of 2024
"My favorite part of Pennington is the warm and welcoming environment. Everyone makes you feel like you are an important part of the School community. I remember my first week in sixth grade; when I walked in, I felt like I had been a student at Pennington for a long time already. I also love that Pennington has the Cervone Center for Learning for students with learning differences. It helps so much to have a one-on-one learning program with a teacher; it makes coming to school an exciting and enjoyable experience.
Pennington has really helped me to become a more independent student and a strong advocate for myself. I have been encouraged to use my voice to express my needs when speaking with teachers, like asking for more time on a certain project or going to extra help after school. I have participated in sports and the performing arts programs offered at Pennington, and they have helped me to explore new opportunities, build skills and relationships, expand my friend groups, as well as meet new people. Pennington was a great choice for me and I am so happy that I am here!"
