Palisades High School is a great school! Although small, it has a great academic program and gives students a large choice for AP classes. There is also a wide variety of normal academic classes and extracurricular activities. Facilities are decent, some areas of the school could definitely need some fixing. The science wing is currently being refitted to be more accomodating to students for the next school year. The school overall is very good but not very diverse, it also can be considered a small school as there are 598 students as of 2020.

The environment is decent, teachers and students are nice, but sometimes it feels like the students are all a number and a few teachers do not put in full effort to help the students. Some want to rely on technology and other resources for assistance, even when students ask a teacher directly for help. Some teachers are great, but others are not and it can be very frustrating especially for students who give full effort and want to succeed. Some just brush students off and have no desire to stay after and put in the extra time to help one succeed, when the student is, and it really puts an extra struggle to school that really should not be a huge issue, but it seems to be very prevalent here.
I like the teacher-student connection here at Palisades High School. It really shows that they care about their students. However the school cares a lot about how they look on the outside rather than the inside. The school looks really good but kids are miserable to come in. Our school offers healthy lunch meals, but offer no source of food that kids actually will enjoy eating. Also, the school seems as if they REALLY try to crack down on drugs and juuls in the school but you can always smell them in the bathroom and its really nasty. There are worms everywhere whenever it rains, bee infestation problems whenever the season comes around, and there is no balance of temperature. There's always not enough heating or not enough cooling. During the winter, they don't do a good job at heating the school up or cooling it down during the summer.
