PenPal Schools topics are designed for students ages 8 and up, and with slight modifications even students as young as Kindergarten can participate! 

Topics are available at different ability levels, so students can participate at a level that is appropriate for their age, grade, and abilities. 

Students interact with PenPals that are within 2 years of age. There may be 3rd graders and 12th graders enrolled in the same topic, but they participate at their appropriate difficulty level with PenPals their age. 

Students in K-2 grade often participate as a whole class instead of individually. If you'd like more information about how to do this, reach out to our support team at
