Honestly, I feel extremely lucky to attend Palisades! The teachers here are amazing and they really care about school problems such as bullying, discrimination, and racism. Teacher play an active role in shaping the school's environment into a hospitable and family-like atmosphere. Teachers take the time to speak to students not only about school, but about their lives. The teachers at Palisades taught me to embrace my unique identity rather than being ashamed of it.
Review Palisades Charter High School
Amazing! Pali offers countless opportunities from robotics club, a study center that offers free tutoring, a mechanics class, to a surf team. Theres something for everyone.
Pali has pods, groups they divide freshman into, that include drama, music, media, etc. I never understood the point of this, it had no impact on my freshman year. Ask anyone and they'll tell you, Pali's math department is not that great. The teachers are unhelpful and the schools ciriculum make the classes harder than they need to be. The AP classes at Pali, the ones I have taken at least (US history, language, literature, and government), have all had terrific teachers who really are focused on helping you understand the course. The arts at Pali are truly amazing considering the low funding they have. I have been very impressed with the supplies and materials students have access to. Our sports teams, most of them, are national champions. The atmosphere of Pali is like no other, we are less than a mile from the beach and are walking distance to the Palisades Village.‬
