I enjoyed my entire high school experience at Palestine High School. I was friends with people from other schools and honestly I always knew I was at the best school. Palestine offers a lot for the students. Many different and FREE college classes, tutorials, great sport programs and they had many cte classes. I’ve seen many students graduate with an associates or being certified as a CNA, CMA, in the dental field, cosmetology, pharmacy, and so many more. Students are able to start their lives very quickly after high school. Our school also is very caring towards one another and welcoming for everyone.

I have absolutely loved being apart of such an amazing school district. They work very hard to make every single student feel welcomed, and do their best to make sure that everyone receives the education that they need to excel in life.
With programs such as TACE, NHS, Student Council, Skills USA and much more the opportunities for extracurricular activities have increased. For many of our clubs there are strict requirements for grades and community service hours. Our principal and staff encourage students to sign up for these after school programs and some programs are quiet fun. There are classes after school to teach you many things ranging from knitting to decorating cakes!
