Overall the school is awesome if you are looking for a smaller private school. The teachers and administration are amazing and really do care for the students. The school is working out a few things such as policies and rules. As a student it can be difficult to get your ideas to happen, but they do try most of the time. I would recommend the school to my friends!

I have recently attended Palmetto Christina School and I have a lot of experience in different situations. Academically, this school does provide a very rigorous form of education that readily prepares kids for college. However the brat mentality has definitely shown through in my opinion. Kids at this school very rarely understand people with other experience and often shun these people out of social groups. There is a very fine line here between those who have attend the school there whole lives and those who have not. I believe that This school definitely equips students with the knowledge to excel academically, but socially I do not agree with the fact that these kids will connect with a college setting where they haven’t known the same people and community there entire lives.
I currently attend Palmetto Christian academy and overall it is good. The teachers genuinely care for you and your academics. From my personal observation, there are a lot of cliques so if you are new then it is hard to make real friends. Everyone is nice though. The dress code is not horrible because even girls can wear pants if they wanted to but In my personal opinion it is enforced to strictly especially for the girls whose skirts have to be covering her knees. Other then that Palmetto Christian Academy is a good school which integrates Christianity into their academics to which they do well.
