These are the three words that define the School and its philosophy.
While the building is new and sits on 19 breath-taking acres, the School holds true to its traditional roots and its values.
A family-oriented school, Pennfield creates a partnership among all its members.

School Reviews

  • Recommended January 31, 2013 - Pennfield School is an amazing nurturing environment and so much more! The classes are small and curriculum''s offer a respectful differentiated teaching for the students. There are numerous extracurricular activities to choose from but most important is the sense of community. Not only is the school on a beautiful campus in a new facility, everyone treats one another with respect and kindness and instills that in our children. I feel very fortunate to have such a great school in our area! - Posted by Parent
