Palmerton Area School District Reviews
During my years in Palmerton Area High School, the place was wonderful. In junior high things were a bit rough and then we went through a change of administration and things were made even better with Mrs. Husar. She was incredibly kind, thoughtful, and professional. She took the aspects that we had from the previous principal and changed things around, she was always dressed in a suit & open-minded. All of the teachers are friendly and remember students after they leave. They all do their best and want to see you succeed. And it's not just the teachers and the office, the staff all around embrace the Palmerton Blue Bomber Pride!
Palmerton is a small school district in a very close-knit community. Heavy parent and community involvement allows many of the extracurricular activities to take place and thrive. The administration/ top of the educational chain have difficulty with internal politics/ cannot function cohesively to provide a consistent environment for the kids. Limited resources along the lines of technology, guidance resources/communication, and general communication to parents- especially as your children get older. Teachers are supportive and helpful if you have a concern, but in general there is limited communication. Diversity is almost nonexistent, the general culture of the schools is supportive but only when necessary. Classes offered at the high school are adequate, there are more choices offered at larger schools.
Palmerton Area School District is overall a good school to go to. The clubs and sports are very involved with the every day student life. Almost every student is in at least one club or one sport. We offer awards and scholarships to those who excel in sports and academics. It is a small town school, so everybody knows everybody. There are some teachers who teach at the high school during the day and then teach at colleges some nights. Since we have that, the students are more prepared for college because our teachers tell us and prepare us for what it is really like.
