  • Recommended November 20, 2014 - I have been going to this school for almost 3 years and it is just so much fun. Most people where so welcoming when i arrived at Pentwater public school. I would have to say that the teachers and most students where very nice. I have way more friends at this school than i did at my old school;) - Posted by Student/Alumni
