Donor Profiles

"Pennington changed my life. I learned to study, accept others for what they are, respect teachers and leaders and realize that the world is very small and very competitive. The high points of my four years were my induction into the Tri-Steps, the School's honorary society, and my acceptance to The Wharton School of Business and Finance at Penn."

Elliot Smith

Class of 1950

"I played basketball for Pennington; Coach Waters and Coach Long were mentors to me. I had a great, diverse group of friends, and the teachers really had time for us. You got to form trusting relationships with teachers. I had such a great experience in high school and Pennington was a big driver of that.”

Dr. Green's Legacy

Dr. Francis Harvey Green was Head of School of The Pennington School from 1920 to 1943, making his administration the second longest in Pennington history. Dr. Green's legacy to Pennington encompassed far more than the letters, manuscripts, and books he presented to the School on his retirement. His legacy lives on in the commitment to academic excellence and respect for each individual that was his hallmark as a teacher and administrator. In order to perpetuate his good work, the Francis Harvey Green Society was formed to provide for The Pennington School's future through planned giving.
