Philosophy

The Pen Ryn School is a school that functions with mutual respect, support and enthusiasm in a nurturing atmosphere.  Parents, teachers, administrators and alumni strive to build a strong academic environment.  Students can then grow with loving care, and gain self-respect and confidence.

The student is the heart of our school.  Pen Ryn seeks to nurture the "whole child," to care for the spirit as well as the mind; to encourage social growth as well as physical development; to install individual academic excellence.

The educational experience at Pen Ryn encourages students to incorporate learning into life and to have a sense of responsibility to the community as well as to themselves.

Our teachers strive to maintain the delicate balance between academic instructor and caring mentor.  We emphasize the development of self-direction, self-discipline, and a positive self image.

The school provides a varied and current curriculum that challenges the student's intellectual abilities.  We seek to develop the potential of each student.

The diversity of ethnic, racial and religious backgrounds of Pen Ryn students provides the opportunity to recognize and respect differences among people and appreciate their uniqueness.
