I just graduated from Palisades Charter High and honestly it was the best 4 years of my life. All the teachers and staff are amazing! I am so attached to those 4 years of my life, the people there are very welcoming, and even though it’s in the palisades area the school is very diverse. There are many clubs where students have the chance to get involved in and the area is very safe, The photography class with Mr. Steils is honestly the best. There are many opportunities in that school. The best!
Pretty good from an acedemic, athletics, and safety aspect. Could definitely use improvement in the math program! Also, the administration works hard to be inclusive and proactive, but sometimes their gestures would be better if actual action was taken.
