- The Pennfield School creates a safe, nurturing environment for all of its students. Children gain confidence in themselves through a process of teaching which is both creative, hands-on, and positive. Each child gains a voice and an audience while at the School. Performances and Assembly Speeches are a part of the educational process, which develop solid public speaking skills. Pennfield is a joyous, happy place and a school which students often refer to as a "second home."

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!
