Located in east Ventura, Penfield staff provides a comprehensive education for students with disabilities from pre-school through 5th grade. We work closely with the local school districts to ensure our students receive a quality education that is individualized to their needs.
Penfield School provides a safe, caring, and educationally challenging environment for all students. Through professional collaboration, the staff uses research based educational practices to address the unique learning needs of all students. We communicate with parents and care providers to enhance the home learning environment and to promote generalization of our students’ learning.
My door is always open and I welcome your comments, suggestions, and ideas. Campus tours are available throughout the school year. Please contact the Penfield office at (805) 647-1974 for more information.
