Parent involvement in the school is moderate. they help raise funds and such. they also attend games, fairs and what not. However they don't directly impact the learning.

I think I have received the best high school experience I could want from North Penn. Everyone was friendly, the teachers were very helpful, and the activities were amazing. It was never boring in the high school.

Regarding parents, they often came with small children to all the events, even if they did not have a child in the event. Very supportive community
