    Administration & Policies: As far as administration goes, I don't have much experience because I never had disciplinary action against me. Although, bullying related offenses are taken very seriously and so are fights. Tardiness and absences are handled seriously as well with consequences being extracurricular activities being taken away and could be even more serious.

    Sports & Fitness: Again, because of the size of this high school, all of the sports facilities are very up to date and are given the equipment necessary for the athletes to prosper in the way that they need to.

    Teachers: The teachers can be a hit or miss. There are some teachers that are great and love their job, and there are others that just want to get out of there as fast as possible at the end of the day. For the most part, learning is more than possible with even just mediocre effort put in from the students.

    Extracurriculars: Because of North Penn High School's size, the extracurricular activity possibilities are endless. If there is not an option for the club or organization someone is interested in, anyone is more than capable of creating it and getting support from the school as long as it is appropriate.

    Educational Outcomes: I felt that I learned a lot of material in high school that I needed to know for some of my science college courses. I feel strong in my writing abilities and grammar skills that I learned at North Penn High School. What needs improvement is the learning of study skills. In my freshman year at West Chester University of Pennsylvania, I needed to completely evaluate how I learn and teach myself how to study for exams that I had never had in high school.
