About Penn

Penn High School is committed to excellence in education!

 

Penn High School logoPenn High School is a large public high school located in suburban northern Indiana. As the flagship school of the Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation, Penn serves all the district’s 9th through 12th grade students as well as hundreds of out-of-district students who have made Penn High School their school of choice.

 

Penn's national reputation for excellence is based on its outstanding academic, athletic and fine arts programs. Penn has been featured on national TV network news for students’ ingenuity and creativity!

 

In October 2019, Penn students were highlighted on CBS Evening News for their work on a service learning project that resulted in building an oversized Incredible Hulk Halloween wheelchair costume for a 4-year-old boy with cerebral palsy. The interdisciplinary project brought together art/sculpture students with robotics/engineering students; the lessons taught transcended the classroom.

 

Penn’s graduation rate is 97%!

 

The Penn High community is focused on  graduating responsible young adults who are college and career ready.
