Pennfield Welcomes Military Families
The Pennfield School has a strong history of working with military families from the Naval War College, welcoming about 14 annually and making them part of our community. They arrive from all over the world—from Azerbaijan, Oman, England, India, Norway and the United States, among other places. Typically at the school for one to three years, they blend right in with our students. Indeed, there’s a real appreciation for military families here—we celebrate their presence by hanging flags from their home countries in our gymnasium, holding a Veterans Day assembly where individuals are honored, and inviting parents to talk about their service. We once Skyped with a father in Saudi Arabia at a school assembly!
“Without wishing to diminish (our daughter’s) own effort… I credit Pennfield for setting her up for success. She graduated with the academic foundations, self-confidence, love of learning and general ‘Joi de Vivre’ that have carried her through her high school career. What an incredible institution you and your team have built. I cannot thank you enough.”
