This school is pretty decent for it's size with students. However, I do wish there were more classes and opportunities I can take without having to worry about whether my class or club will be removed because of financial issues or anything on that line. I have had classes or clubs removed because of unfortunate circumstances and I'd like to be able to take those classes again. I'm currently a junior here but it'd still be nice for the younger grades to have an opportunity to have those classes that were removed.

From high school and beyond, Palisade Preparatory School is a good academic environment where the teachers are friendly and are very lenient. There are many honors classes that this school has to offer. The school is immensely diverse and has provides the students with many extracurricular activities. The principal here is very friendly and will definitely resolve any problems that one might have.
However, the hallways here are relatively narrow and there is a problem with overpopulation, making it a difficult task to walk through the hallways without being in a congested area. The architecture is not the school's fault though, the educational foundation itself is splendid.
I actually had a great experience at Palisade Prep, the support system there is very great, if you ever need help there’s always someone there trying to lend a helping hand. The teachers are great and there’s a lot of resources and activities offered.
