    If they allowed me to bring my dogs to school my day would be better. None of the stuff that usually makes me cry would matter anymore. Who cares if they didn't let me dye my hair? Who cares if kids move around in tiny mobs like sardines? Who cares if all that matters is what parties you went to? What teen alcoholics you talk to? Who cares if the greatest teachers have left? I've got my two best companions next to me, trotting along. And if people ask me what grade I got on my last chem test with such necessity that it makes them sound like they're asking me for the answers to the universe's grandest questions, I'd just feed the test to one of my dogs. Gobble. Gobble. Yum! Don't get me wrong. I've had some magnificent but rare teachers in this place; the same goes for friends. They're just hard to find. Overall: great college prep, no sleep schedule, lots of caffeine needed to function, and maybe a therapist.

    After attending a public middle school, there was a bit of culture shock when I entered PTS in 9th grade. So far, although the academics seem underwhelming when compared to other local high schools (ex. coral reef), the teachers are great and the campus is lovely. The food is good as long as you don't have any dietary restrictions, as there are limited options for vegetarians and almost nothing for vegans. If you've been in the private school system you'd be right at home at palmer, but things are a little bit tougher if you don't have a trust fund.
    I’m an alum of Palmer Trinity and so proud of my diploma and my alma mater. What was a good school back then is an amazing school today filled with teachers who care and administrators who are passionate about what they do. The administration also is top notch! I wouldn’t send my own kids anywhere else.
