Palmyra R-I School District Reviews
Rating 4.38 out of 5 21 reviews
If you like smaller schools this is the school district for you. The teachers are awesome and because of the small class sizes there is plenty of opportunities for teachers to work one on one with the students.
I love the sense of community in the school district, but i would like to see more diversity in the students and sports programs.
Palmyra High School is a excellent school. They put the students learning first and they are always trying their hardest to put the students futures first. There is always someone there to help you when you need help.
My experience at Palmyra High School was excellent. Staff and factuality are very helpful and sensible. No matter what I knew if I had a problem, there would be someone to help me resolve it. Also Palmyra offers dual credit classes which I took part in. These specific course aloud me to experience what a college class and setting was like before even graduating. Palmyra R-1 School Districts' sports program makes Palmyra come together has a whole city. I was a cheerleader all 4 years of high school and I can tell you personally that Friday night lights is a feeling I will never forget, especially being on the Palmyra High School football field. Overall I would recommend everyone to send there kids to Palmyra in order to obtain a great schooling experience.
Palmyra has a very good education program and offers high level courses that will prepare students for college. The only downfall of it is that it is hard to keep information private because of how small the school is. The school is very safe, but not much diversity.
I moved here in 6th grade and ever since. This has been the best school in i have attended. From the sports to the classes all has been great.
I love the Palmyra R-1 school district! the community is great; it feels like a big family. The school is very safe having a resource officer that looks over the buildings. The school has always had a lot of academic success with great teachers that put their students first. There is a multitude of clubs and activities to do for it being such a little community. Organizations such as FCA that allows students to be themselves. Some of the facilities have been newly renovated with a new football field being finished this past fall. With that being said we put a lot of time and effort into not only our academics, but also our sports. We have gone to state in multiple sports, including tennis, track, and softball. Palmyra R-1 is a great school to be a part of!
Palmyra R-1 is a great school and the town is a perfect family environment. The town is very tight knit and it is like a big family. If you like sports then Palmyra would be great for your family as they are competitive in every sport. The administration, teachers, and academics are the best in northeast Missouri. Palmyra was voted one of the safest towns in Missouri. There are only a few negatives in this small town. There is not a lot of diversity. The culture and clubs and activities are limited but what we do have is exceptional.
I have been a student at Palmyra since elementary school, and have made great friends. The teachers are always willing to stay after school or come in early to help a student. The staff understands that students have work and sports and try to help you out S much as possible to pass their class. The high school librarian is someone you can go to help for with many of your writing assignments, if you want a book she will try to get it for you.
I believe that the Palmyra R-1 School District values it’s students and faculty. We are a school with about 350-400 students and we always come together in times of need. For example, this year a freshman had to have extreme spinal surgery, so at the football game everyone wore red because it was his favorite color. The dance and cheer team wore red shirts while they performed and the student section wore all the red they could. The freshman ended up passing away and that was one of the hardest things to come from the intercom. The school brought in counselors for anyone you needed to speak their thoughts and feelings. This school has so many opportunities to get college dual credit classes and receive A+ hours. I personally will end high school with seven college classes finished. I would change the amount of money each sport receives and make sure that each sport gets recognized.
Being in such a small town, the Palmyra School District has always received exceptional support from the community, which is something I will miss when I move away to college. Most members of the staff and administration work very closely with students to ensure all material is understood completely. I have always felt comfortable going to any of my teachers for extra help when I don't understand a subject, which has been very beneficial. One thing I would like to see improved upon is the activities of extracurriculars like Student Council and Key Club. Being a member of both, I know we could do more to give back to the community.
I like how active the teachers, and how they get students engaged in class. They encourage student to get more involved in other activities like, student council. The school staff puts all upcoming events on the school’s social medial, helping us get informed when the games and other events take place. The teachers motivates students that have lacked or have fallen behind in class, to encourage them to participate in class. The one thing I would change is more foreign classes and opening the library up earlier in the morning.
Palmyra R-I School Distric is a very good facility for anybody around. Palmyra High School is very advanced in academics and athletics. I have no complaint about this schoo district at all because it is very helpful and has a 18-1 student to teacher ratio in most classes so your teacher knows you individually.
The Palmyra R1 School district is absolutely amazing. We just recently went one to one and have transitioned better than expected into the technology realm. Teachers are always willing to help and assist in any way possible as well.
I have learned many life skills in my years in the Palmyra R-1 School District. I have had some amazing teachers and been around some amazing people. I am proud to say I am a Palmyra Panther.
Overall I have had a good experience at Palmyra R-1 High School. The school district has a good academic program. They are limited on the clubs that would attract everyone. Meaning there are clubs for the smarter kids, but some kids slip through the cracks. Palmyra R-1 puts a lot of emphasis on sports. If you aren't in sports then you aren't really cared about. There is NO diversity in Palmyra. There is a lot of intolerance here as well.
Palmyra High School has a very strong teaching staff and every teacher I've taken a course with has done anything and everything to reach out and make sure I'm getting the education I need.
