Hi, I would like to write this review as someone who Has attended this school in the last 2 years. First I would like to get started on the actual building. Now recently Pennoyer has been dealing with money problems, due to the referendum of 2018 not passing. Many of the classrooms do not have floors and many of the ceilings are not filled, I have heard that this is trying to be fixed with the money they can put together. Final thoughts, the building is not 21st century learning ready. My next point will be the teachers and staff, which I overall enjoy. You can tell the teachers put more than their all into everything they do, yes there are some teachers style that I do not enjoy overall. However, most of the time if you put effort into your education they can be enjoyable. Next, I will talk about their activities, after school and what not. Now this school tries it''s best with the clubs most of the time though, it''s the teachers who put together the artistic clubs. The sports are apart of a different company that causes the students to pay about $100 to join most sports. Finally to sum it up, this school is and isn''t as bad as everyone makes it. Depending on your interests, it can be enjoyable. That doesn''t mean that there isn''t work to do. For me it was the students who made my experience a bit hard, but I can''t blame that on the school. The school does have to fix some structure parts of it, most of it is out of their control sadly.

Jay McDowell, a public school teacher in Howell, evicted a student for making anti-homosexual comments, but now the instructor faces suspension. Learn about the national controversy that involves this local Michigan teacher.
A six-year old in Aurora, Colorado, was suspended after singing an LMFAO song to a little girl in his class and reportedly “shaking his booty.” We look at the case and the sexual harassment problem in public schools today.
After playing rapper Macklemore's "Same Love" pro-gay rights rap song in class, a Michigan teacher was suspended with no pay. We explore the controversy.
