Palisades Charter High School Reviews
Rating 3.92 out of 5 698 reviews
It's a great school that has excellent teams for water-related sports (water polo, diving, racing, etc) and it's also very diverse. Students from over 100 zip codes attend this school. The classes and opportunities are excellent and the counselors work well with the local JC (Santa Monica College) if students wish to fulfill high school or college level requirements for transcripts
My experience at Palisades Charter High School was a great one with great teachers and some bad ones. Some teachers were unqualified for their position and would randomly leave the class for a whole year, leaving their students confused, with no further support from the school. This happened during my sophomore year for Algebra 1 and again in junior year for AP Computer Science Principles. Apart from that, they have great free resources for tutoring and counseling. Not to mention the wide range of clubs and inclusivity.
My experience has been good. The school has a lot of different programs and classes for students. I enjoy the fun electives like cooking, design, and drawing. Some of the teachers aren’t that good though.
Many of the teachers have a natural talent for teaching. However, some are slightly overconfident in their teaching skills. Many students are from wealthier neighborhoods, which gives them a somewhat snobbish attitude. Admin has many issues, which can clearly be seen from a student's perspective. Overall, good school, but much room for improvement.
My experience at this school probably is unique in its own way. I've had great times at the school with choir and theatre projects, leadership opportunities, and the class events. Though times weren't always great with certain teachers and activities, I love my school and I wouldn't trade it for anything.
Best parts were the teachers and great deal of options for classes. There’s a mix for everybody and you’re not stuck with just your mandatory classes. Some things I would want to see improved is just better security, but overall not too many things to take points off for
From attending palisades I believe my expertise was quite from good receiving help from my peers and teachers in school and a lot of support from the school regarding classes and homework.From attending palisades these past years I believe it’s a great and accepting community created with students and teachers.But also getting the accessibility to go above in beyond with whatever you peruse.
I love the community, and the spirit is great. The teachers are 50/50. They’re either really bad or really good. The administration is AWFUL as they cannot communicate effectively and are extremely disorganized. Great location and academics are great too.
I enjoyed my experience at this school so far. I transferred three weeks in my Sophmore year(this next upcoming school year I will be a Junior), but my teachers were all kind enough to help me with any issues I had. The overall experience of the school was very nice as well. There are many different classes to choose from, many that help students choose which things interest them most. However my only issue was that many political agendas were being involved in the school, a place that it shouldn't. But everything aside from that was quite good. The school allowed me to challenge myself intellectually and I became friends with many people quickly.
Like to see more teachers and administration involvement. Better communication between the administration and the parents.
I have loved my experience in the school as I have gained experiences that I would no where else. The school provides me with opportunities for my future and the community is very welcoming.
I like how the counselors are available to work with you and very helpful. They are super accommodating to students that need to go to virtual because of personal reasons.
What I love about Palisades Charter High School is how they academically prepare you for college admissions as the offer only honors, college prep and AP classes. I also admire the variety in class from Clothing and Textiles to Hiking class. There is also a student body, ambassadors and link crew that helps new and current students settle into school. Every staff member there is more than willing to help you succeed in school and life. I also love how the staff members are open to new ways to improve the school, overall I rate the school a 5 out of 5!
This high school is like any other but what I like about it is that it provides a lot of college resources, we have a college center and the school provides a lot for the students. The mental health team at our school is really good.
It’s a good school compare to others but the students are not the best. Some teachers can be difficult but you’ll be fine as long as you do your work.
Palisades is a diversity school and strong academics. The school managements are efficiency and give student lots of support.
It is a really good school with a lot of different kinds of people. It's right by the ocean which makes going to the beach after school fun. Class sizes feel pretty large, and you don't know half of your grade's names because it's so big. Math department SUCKS but everything else is pretty good.
