I like that Palo Verde is a very diverse school. Their atheletics overall might not be the best. But the soccer team always has so much heart. There running program is full of fun kids. From experience I’ve had some of the best teachers, and some of the worst. At Palo Verde it’s what you make of the experience. Going into my senior year I’m trying to make it the best possible experience!

I recently transferred into Palo Verde Magnet High School, overall, I am extremely happy with my school. The campus is clean, students are ready to learn and teachers are ready to teach!
In my experience, students and staff here are really nice and friendly. I came from a different school and easily made friends here. Most of the teachers are really supportive and serious about their job. Administration is always looking forward for our well being in this school. I enjoy being a titan!
