Pennfield has exceeded our school expectations in every way. We are a military family and moved mid-year. Pennfield welcomed us with open arms. Our son, along with us, has fallen in love with the school. Even the older kids stop my 4 year old to say hello by name. Every morning we are greeted by the head of school. My son has learned and advanced so much, and most importantly, runs into school with an excited grin every morning. Pennfield is amazing and I can not recommend it enough!

Pennfield is an amazing place. We couldn't be happier with our decision to send our children here. The faculty and staff are the most loving, caring and talented group of people that we could ask for. We're so fortunate to be a part of this wonderful community!

As a former student of The New School, and having 2 children attend Pennfield I can't say enough about the school! The unbelievable faculty, fantastic families and wonderful students you can't ask for anything more!!

Garnie Stapleton CoryAlumna & Parent

Through my 9 years at Pennfield I gained a foundation of classroom skills and study habits that served me well in my transition to high school and through my four years at PCD. The close community provided me with an opportunity to express leadership and confidence that have helped me not only in my academic career but also on the sports field, on stage, and with my friends. Pennfield also shaped both my love and ability to write. I'm so grateful for my experience at this school and now that I'm going to Middlebury College in the fall I can proudly say that once a Panther, always a Panther.

Pennfield is the gift of all gifts and each and every child should have the opportunity of a Pennfield education. I feel so lucky that my children were given the gift of a Pennfield experience and lived the mission for 10 years. I know they are who they are today with the help of this amazing community of teachers, administrators and parents.

Pennfield was a fabulous place for our son and family for 11 years. Academically challenging and supportive in every way! Couldn't ask for a better learning environment. The best teachers around!

Alison KielyFormer parent

Our experience with Pennfield thus far has exceeded all our expectations. Our son is challenged, motivated, and most importantly, excited about school. This is an absolute testament to Pennfield’s philosophy, approach, and commitment to fostering a top-notch academic and community environment.

For us, Pennfield is much more than a place for our children to achieve academic excellence. Pennfield is a community of caring, patience and nurturing that enables all the children there to excel and flourish as healthy active participants in life. Stimulating confidence and promoting individual and community responsibility, Pennfield is helping to shape both bright minds and great attitudes for future success no matter what direction our children ultimately travel.

[My son] talks nonstop when I pick him up in the afternoon about how much he loves school & the fun he is having. His comments & excitement always brighten my "Mommy, I had the time of my life today. My school is AMAZING, the coolest school ever."
