  1. That's confusing, they always advertise the Penncrest high school is the emergency center for Media & U.P. Not the middle school. I would have gone to Penncrest if I didn't see this.


  2. My guess is it was penncrest while SL was under construction for years. Construction just wrapped up, so maybe that is why it is at SL
