The best school located in Anderson County. Teachers, faculty, and community members truly make Palmetto a great school. During the Covid-19 experience, I truly have realized how much I actually miss being at school surrounded by this great community.
I loved Palmetto High! The teachers were beyond exceptional, and they always made sure you understood before continuing. The only thing that would make it a much better place would be the facilities. Quite often would there be no toilet paper or soap.
