Stainton Hall, Pennington School
112 West Delaware Avenue
Pennington, New Jersey 08534

FYI:  There is a new entrance to The Pennington School campus off W. Delaware Ave just a few feet to the west of the old one.  It leads to a new parking lot immediately behind Stainton Hall.  For now, one can use both entrances, but parking at the new one is less crowded and conveniently close to the rear entrance near the south side of the building.
