Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships


Penn High School strives to provide an educational environment for students to reach their highest academic potential, while preparing each student to be a responsible, healthy, and contributing citizen. We pride ourselves on offering a very personalized environment in which we prepare students for a range of post-secondary options including the workplace, the military, and college. 


Academic Achievement


Indiana’s Department of Education maintains the “Compass” website where school information including demographics, test scores, and graduation rates are displayed for Penn High for the past several years. We invite you to visit the Compass website to browse this information. Penn’s data reveal consistently high outcomes by almost any measure. 


The Academies 


The Academies at Penn High School provide the framework for student success. Through their work in each academy, students find relevant and meaningful coursework taught in a supportive environment where each student is known well by his teacher and peers. Through these “smaller learning communities,” students build relationships while engaged in relevant learning experiences.


Professional Staff


The teaching staff at Penn High School is among the best in the country. Every teacher at Penn has been trained in:

  • Personalized instruction

  • Differentiated instruction

  • Common assessments

  • Response to Intervention

  • Literacy


Our success as a school is measured by the success of each of our students. Every staff member at Penn, not just the teachers, is committed to the success of every student. We all stand ready to help and support you with any issue.
