The teachers in Palmyra-Macedon High School are wonderful, always helping students and considerate of a normal student life. Although athletics and food are not always great or successful, I have made wonderful friends here! If a student apply themselves, high school is easy and they would need to try harder to fail. The atmosphere is nice, but I think there needs to be upgrades such as nicer bathrooms, gym bleachers, classroom material, lockers that are our school color, and a courtroom.

I have enjoyed my four-year experience at Palmyra-Macedon High School and I thoroughly enjoyed the people and the students there. Although academics are above par at our high school, it would be great to see the school concentrate more upon their academics than their sports, which is an issue at our school. In addition, the school does not meet the needs of the students for proper facilities (especially the bathrooms) and with decent meals for lunches. Since our parents pay taxes for our school, I believe that the future and current students should be rewarded with sufficient needs within our school. Even though our school is a little misfocused on its objective (which is to educate students to its greatest potential), Palmyra-Macedon’s high school is a great school for adademics and is a great school for activities.
I liked that Pal-Mac Senior High School has a lot of opportunities when it comes to the classes we decide to take. If we want to take FLCC or MCC classes, we have the opportunity to do so and it helps in the future because if we need a science class we can take the credit we got from high school and use it rather than pay money for a class we don't need to take. What I would like to see happen in Pal-Mac is the preparation for college for seniors to improve. By the time we get into our first week of classes in September we're already doing college essays and everything is thrown onto us at once.
