As an incoming sophomore, I've only had the privilege of attending this school for a single year. However, in that year I never felt anything but support from the administrators, teachers, staff, and coaches. The novelties of small town amity has provided me and my classmates with a comfortable learning environment in which the teachers truly want us all to excel. In short, I recommend.

Palmer High School is not well known because of the small amount of students enrolled. The teachers and staff are incredible, attending such a small school help was always available when needed. I grew up in this school with all my classmates and Palmer High School created so many memories that I could never forget. Even though there was some bad times, the good times make up for them. After graduating, I plan on visiting the school that helped me get to where I am today, but I hope to see the class sizes grow over the years.
I enjoyed my experience at Palmer High School, I graduated in 2018. I had caring teaches that guided me throughout my high school years, preparing me for my college life. I was very much involved in my academics, I was in the school band and I did some sports. I met real good friends, teachers, faculty and community members. Palmer ISD was my home since 2nd grade and it will always be in heart, now that I am in college, I see how Palmer ISD prepared me for my new life as a college student.
