Palatine High School was a place for me where I can easily say that I enjoyed my high school experience. I have made tons of friends, grown closer with the teachers there, and learned a lot about life in general there, and what it takes to succeed in college and beyond. The academic rigor there is high, yet a good way to prepare me for my professional life. I always felt welcome in the school, and always felt that I was learning something new everyday in class that I would eventually use in my later life. It makes me sad to say goodbye, and I am going to miss this school!

Good school, great community! Diverse but still seems like a PWI in come cases. Passionate staff and passionate PTA. Awesome clubs and activities and great athletics. Typical American high school experience. Almost like High School Musical in a way.
Lovely school with many great opportunities. You have the coice to attend Harper for free! I graduated feeling very prepared for college and I was encouraged to reach my highest potential every step of the way. It's located in a safe area of town and there are students of all backgrounds at the school who (to my knowledge) get along well with one another.
