Open Quote Penn is a great school. Both my kids went there and graduated with a full year of college credits at Purdue. The school is large so for almost any interest your child has, there is a group of kids who want to hang out. The teachers were great too. Most were willing to come in before school or stay after to help even if my kids just wanted to clarify their understanding. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
