Palmyra Junior/Senior High School Reviews

Personally the school for me helped me grow, I was always around the people I knew since kindergarten I pretty much grew up with all my classmates. Having that I say that it will help me grow when I’m an adult to expand my experiences and meet new people instead of latching onto old ones. The lunch ladies were the sweetest people you could meet and were very helpful, I even helped them out a bit. The teachers were always there to support you and help you out if you needed it, even if you didn’t understand they took the time to make sure you got it. My experience at this highschool was amazing, everyone was so nice and welcoming and it was just a little family. Sports taught you discipline while strengthening you mentally and physically. If I had the chance to start over and choose a school to go to it would be Palmyra. We had so many extracurricular activities that everyone could be involved in, and the ACT Prep we had helped very much we had multiple resources.

I came to the Palmyra-Bennet school district upon entering sixth grade. I had no idea of the impact these schools would leave on me. I had only one year in the elementary school, but I could tell they were definitely going somewhere. I enjoyed the upbeat atmosphere and empathetic teachers. I switched to the high school and quickly adapted to the new lifestyle. The teachers were again empathetic and helpful, and the atmosphere was relaxed and motivated. I involved myself in many activities and had the chance to grow closer with my friends and the faculty. I would recommend Palmyra to anybody because of the expectations and the many hardworking and dedicated people.
I have been in the District OR-1 school district since I began kindergarten. As of right now, Palmyra High School is under construction in some areas of the building so the safety and facilities are not outstanding, but once all of the craziness subsides, I believe it will be back up to excellent. Our academics are decent, but our administration and teachers are amazing. They are constantly checking up on students to ensure they are following the right path and keeping up their grades. Our college readiness program is superlative compared to any other. I believe our sports are average for the most part, but this year has definitely been better than any other year I have been in high school. Finally, our parents are very involved with the school and its activities, in fact, they are our number one fans. Overall, Palmyra has been a great place for me to grow and learn. I have met many great people here and can not wait to see where they end up in years to come.
