Pennsbury High School

Summary
Pennsbury High School is a public high school located in Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania in the United States. It is part of Pennsbury School District. With 2,907 students enrolled for the 2021–2022 school year, Pennsbury High School is the largest high school in Bucks County and the tenth largest high school in the state of Pennsylvania. There are approximately 255 faculty members and staff. It is the only high school in Pennsbury School District, which has a total enrollment of 10,958 students and includes Bucks Technical High School and Intermediate Unit student totals. Pennsbury had a graduating class of 800 students in 2018, of which 91% were college-bound. The school had seven National Merit Scholarship finalists and one winner. In 2002, Pennsbury High School's prom tradition caught the attention of Sports Illustrated senior writer Michael Bamberger. After writing an article for the magazine about the 2002 prom, Bamberger went on to write a book, Wonderland: A Year in the Life of an American High School, which chronicled the senior year of a group of Pennsbury students. The rights for the book were bought by Paramount, and MTV and Tollin/Robbins Productions were to produce the film, which had tentatively been named Pennsbury. In 2004, Mike Tollin and Brian Robbins signed with Walt Disney Studios, leaving the status of the project uncertain. Zach Woods, an alumnus of Pennsbury, and Robert Costa, a political journalist, are both characters in the film. On January 12, 2007, seventeen Pennsbury High School students were injured and hospitalized when a school bus veered into a group of students as they left school. After the driver placed the bus into gear, the engine began accelerating uncontrollably; it then "jumped a curb outside one of the school buildings, drove over a sidewalk, barreled down an access road, mowed down a fence and slammed head-on into the retaining wall." The very same bus in this accident had been involved in another accident under the same circumstances (although no students were injured) 10 years earlier.
