Palmyra High School is a great high school which focuses on all aspects of education; from academics, to sports, to clubs, to extra curicular activities. There is something available for every one to participate in if they choose to do so. Administration as well as teachers, care about the students and there success. I have had a wonderful and memorable experience over the last for years. I will carry these memories with me throughtout my life!
I feel they prepared me very well for college, or whatever I chose to do with my life! There was a ton of different classes offered with very helpful teachers, and I didn't feel restricted in any way when it came to taking classes that interested me.
