My daughter is absolutely thriving at APH! Her classes are challenging her to think and learn. She enjoys going to school every day and is excited to talk about what she is learning. She has made strong friendships already and is actively involved in the school community. She particularly loves the art and music opportunities. As a parent, it is a pleasure to see my daughter so happy learning and experiencing an outstanding education.

The Academy at Penguin Hall is a good school. I actually enjoy going to school everyday. I really learn things that apply to my life. The food here is Exquisite. The people here are truly the nicest people I've met. I enjoy being around them. The teachers all have different teaching styles. It's not the same boring class; taking notes off a PowerPoint, long lectures, being assigned problems to do the whole class. There's a lot of productivity in each class. It is a great environment. I highly recommend.

We are experiencing first hand the top notch education and community of #APH. The staff and students were so welcoming and helpful during the admissions process. Seeing our daughter thrive in her first year of high school is the best reward. So happy we took the chance to check this school out! #PenguinHallPride
