I enjoy New Palestine High School due to the interaction every student, parent, teacher and community member has in the school. It is a small town with a family atmosphere. The technology uses here are very advanced - the students are incredibly fortunate. I rarely see a problem with buying or students getting left out. I think the major factor as to why there is a minimum amount of bullying is due to the involvement of teachers, administration and lectures the school corporation requires monthly. Great school, great academics, great sports, and great teachers. I would recommend New Palestine High School to anyone!

I have enjoyed my experience at New Palestine more than most students. New Palestine has given me the resources I have needed to succeed and better prepare me for college. I am in many clubs and programs that have help me grow and develop into the person I am today. The teachers and facility have been great! If you are having an issue, I truly believe they do everything in their power to fix the problem. But over everything what has really made my experience great are the teachers and their willingness to make every student learn to their best ability. I am so glad I have had the honor to carry on my high school career at this high school, and I can not wait to see how the knowledge I learned in this school carries on to my further levels of education.
My experience at New Palestine High School has been wonderful. It’s located in a small close knit community. The small town and community support make it a premiere school in our area. With an A rating many people move here for the schools and safe environment. We have top notch teachers and a wide variety of AP and exploratory courses. We have outstanding sports facilities and coaches who are active with students and with the community. I’m fortunate to attend New Palestine High School. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else!
