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.
Palmyra Jr. Sr. High school is a great school for anyone living in the Bennet, Palmyra, Douglas area. It is a small school, with lots of room for opportunity, and equality. The teachers really try to help you get into college, and always look out for you to make sure you are on the right path. Palmyra has a wide range of opportunities including Varsity and Jv sports, band and choir, along with a lot of clubs. Palmyra is primarily a local school, but our district really tries to bring cultural diversity with a number of foreign exchange students and abroad programs to help bring cultural, along with a very excellent Spanish program that really teaches diversity throughout your high school career. Faculty, and parents of Palmyra students are always willing to help with guidance or college preparedness. In conclusion I believe Palmyra is a great school for anyone near the Bennet, Palmyra, Douglas area, and is a great school for someone who has a dream of going to college.
