Palomar High School Reviews

Teachers are very helpful, and are always trying to help their students one way or another. No sports teams, but there's always balls out and students are encouraged to do exercise. Students come from all walks of life, and everyone knows each other. Positive student and teacher relationships form quickly and naturally, and almost every student on campus has a trusted faculty member they can talk to if they're feeling down. I've been to a lot of alternative schools, and this school is perfect for student's who don't have time or resources to do homework. Little to no homework is issued, and if it is , it's just extra credit. Students earn credits by the hour, and each credit is worth 60 hours. You can work at your own pace.
