Palo Verde High School Reviews

The teachers are very nice and the students are respectful. There is a high quality of education and the higher-level classes are competitive. Many students are taking Honors or AP classes and there is an International Baccalaureate program at the school. Many interesting electives are offered and students are encouraged to take classes they are express interest in. Additionally, block scheduling is beneficial for students because this helps them retain information longer with fewer classes in a day and longer class periods.

Palo Verde, in my experience, has helped me grow as a student and person. I joined many clubs and organizations, which exposed me to many new social groups. I also had very good teachers, and a wonderful councelor, all which helped me to become a better student. I do wish our school was more diverse, and didn't have so many cliques, but other than that, my experience at Palo Verde has been very good!
I've been diagnosed with high functioning Autism at the age of 5 and big changes are not exactly my favorite. The first week of school wasn't easy as I needed extra time to get used to the new faces and completely different "environment". However, the wonderful teachers and administration staff were so nice, patient and willing to give me the extra time I needed. This is not common in a public school so I feel very fortunate. Today I'm a senior at Palo Verde and I am thankful to many incredible people who helped me along the way. I'm a senior at Palo Verde and I am thankful to many incredible people who helped me along the way. My counselor prepared me for the next step, college! My teachers encouraged me to become a diligent student and trained me to develop a hunger for learning. It is because of them and their dedication that today I am stronger, focused on my goals and ready for my next adventure.
