My four years at MSP, was very interesting. I made a lot of friendships, took a lot off valuable classes, and made plenty of memories. The experience was great! Being around great people with a welcoming staff makes everyday smooth. There is not one thing I will change.

I Love Going To MS Palmer. I Been In Evolved In So Many After School Activities, That Includes: Volleyball , Which I Enjoy Playing, Cheerleading, Track, Which I Love Doing, Softball/Fast Pitch Softball, Which I Like Playing Also. My Team & I Went To State In Track This (2016), Which Was A Great Experience. I had Never Been Before & It Wasn't what I Expected It To Be, But I Had Fun. What Makes My School Unique, Is That It's NOT all About Work, Work, Work. They Also Try To Make It To Where We Can Have Some Fun Too. I'll Choose This School Again Because Ain't No School Like My School. They Make Sure You Got what You need To Pass. They Don't Want to See Us Fail.
We Have A Lot Of Support, When It Comes Down To Extracurricular Activities. I Have The Most Fun Playing Volleyball Because It's Funny How We Will Swing Our Arms, And Miss, Or When Some Of Us Gurls, Ends Up Falling On The Floor, Trying To Move To The Ball. The Administrators Don't Too Much Support Us In Everything We Do, I Guess They Be Too Busy.
