When you walk into The Pennfield School, you see the words "Joy, Understanding, and Respect" over the main entry.
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.
Children leave Pennfield having acquired a true love of learning and a confidence to excel at the secondary school level.

- 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!
