Palmyra Public School District Reviews

The school district focuses on individual achievement in every day life. Many students choose trades and county college due to finances which unfortunately negatively impacts Palmyra as a "performing district". Loved my experience here and excited to see the future. Palmyra is a hidden gem, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Throughout the years at Palmyra High School, I have been taught a lot. Palmyra is a great school with some wonderful teachers that guided me through the choices I have made academically. I am a member of the Interact Club, the Varsity Softball team, National Honors Society. Spanish National Honors Society, and manager of the Varsity Boys Soccer team. Although I am not going to college as a science major, I do wish that Palmyra did have a science department that was a little bit better to benefit those who are going for that intended major. I would say that is the only thing I would change.
My experience with Palmyra High School as a parent was truly interesting. .it became more interesting when my son became a senior. .i t hen found out how uninterested staff was on whether or not African-American students attended college...it was like pulling teeth to get the guidance department to point me in the right direction. Being a single mother without a college education myself the process of enrolling in college was stressful, scary, and expensive. With no help from the Palmyra High this made applying for college even more stressful. I can proudly day after a lot of crying and praying my son is now enrolled at Delaware State University, although college is a hardship for me it is well worth the sweat and tears.
