- March 16,2012 - As a senior about to graduate, I look back on my 7 years at Penn Charter with mixed feelings. The challenging academics and vigorous requirements were always a struggle for me. Not only was it hard to keep up, but it was sometimes hard to understand why my friends at public schools didn't have hours of homework each night. However, looking back on the experience, I can see how much it has shaped me. Going through high school is difficult, but I gained tremendously important skills that give me a huge advantage over others my age. The constant testing and homework also teaches us maturity, and allowed us to blossom into hardworking adults. I know that the price is extremely high, and the work is difficult, but Penn Charter truly is a wonderful school. It offers something for everyone; if you wish to be involved, you can certainly do so. Sports are a large aspect of student life, but for those like myself who are not interested in sports, you may manage a team and spend more of your time in the brand-new 14-million dollar performing arts center. No school is perfect, and PC certainly has its faults, but overall, going here has shaped me into an adult equipped for the world.*-Posted by Student/Alumni *
