Palisades School District Reviews

Palisades school district is made up of 3 elementary schools, 1 middle school and 1 high school. It is a fairly rural community and small population. The upside is that the student to teacher ration is small and the teachers and administrators get to know many of the students. For the most part, the teachers and administrators get to know the students fairly well. This school district is always looking to improve academics and the physical facility. The Tech school is a great option for many students.

Overall, the teachers are very helpful when it comes to needing extra help or assisting with student concerns; the academics are splendid, and Palisades offers several AP and Dual Enrollment courses to help prepare students for college. However, the school could certainly improve some of its buildings; there has been a leak in the high school ceiling for the past two years. Also, several rooms throughout the high school do not have air conditioning, making it difficult for students to learn comfortably; although, the school feels and is very safe, and the faculty takes all the necessary safety precautions and then some. Thus, overall, Palisades is a wonderful school district to be apart of.
The Palisades school district is a small and comfortable community in a rural town. The school itself houses caring and talented teachers, most of which seem to genuinely enjoy their jobs and working with children. The school is very safe considering the environment and surrounding area, and we often practice safety drills such as the ALICE procedure. The school has a wide range of opportunities for every interest, including the technical school for those interested in cabinet making, cooking, welding, and many other hands-on careers. There are also a wide range of college and AP classes available, including duel enrollment with Bucks County Community College and surrounding colleges with the Scholar's Program. There are also a wide range of clubs and activities, such as Key Club, Environmental club, Palisades Youth Group, ski club, and more. Overall, this is a great school with ample academic and extra-curricular activities.
