PAASD Superintendent

Welcome to the Pen Argyl Area School District! The district is comprised of the Plainfield Elementary School, Wind Gap Middle School, and Pen Argyl Area High School. Students who attend the Pen Argyl Area School District live in the Pen Argyl and Wind Gap Boroughs and Plainfield Township.

The composition of the district is as follows:

  • 9  School Board members
  • 14  Administrators
  • 142  Professional Staff
  • 59  Support Staff
  • 1,632  Students
  • 12,339  Community Members

The rich community heritage, pride, and tradition, as well as the dedication of the district's employees, volunteers, students, parents, and residents, make Pen Argyl an attractive place to raise and educate young people. Although a small school district by population, Pen Argyl looms large in the quality of its academic instruction, the skill and sportsmanship of its athletic teams, and the talent nurtured in its music, art, and all extracurricular activities.

Consequently, I am very proud to say that I am the Superintendent of such a fine educational institution - the Pen Argyl Area School District.

Thank you.
Walter M. Schlegel, Jr.
