    "It is a fairly typical LAUSD school, don't let the beautiful campus fool you. There are some great teachers, some really horrible ones and many that are "just there". The Principal runs the school like a corporate CEO and seems to like to do things her way and does not particularly encourage dissent. I always got the feeling the school tries to keep parents "out of the way". The Math Dept is horrible, everyone knows it but nothing is done. The campus is gorgeous, the education is mediocre. It's a metaphor for LA."

    "I'm not here to rate the school but to offer advice to the student who feels she is not going to be able to attend a unversity. Don't panic about this, you're in the 10th grade and you still have time to catch up. Unfortunately, there will always be teachers who make hasty d cisions simply because you lost concentration. You'll find that there are alot of people like that as you go through life. If your grades are low, you can always take summer classes where you may make them up, perhaps with a teacher who is more caring and concerned. Don't start to panic now, just do your best and find other solutions. Good luck!"

    "I currently go to this school and I am in the 10th grade.some of them have helped me understand things I haven't been able to learn before from previous teachers. When I started school last year, about a month into school, I was supposed to be out into Algebra 1, the math class I was put into in the school before palisades, but when I got in they put me in "algebra readiness" which is pre-algebra, I was really mad at this and went to talk to my counselor about it, all she said was I either didn't show up for the placement test or I scored low on the placement test, but I did neither, I have never taken a placement test at Pali and neither was I asked to take one. I'm afraid I won't be able to graduate. his year my teacher had brought down my academic grade (A,B,C,ect.) because I fell asleep in class for a few minutes while she showed us a sample video of a project we will be doing soon. I don't know what to do anymore, I love this school but only the good parts, the rest I just wanna switch to another school who won't mess up my classes and change my grade because of their personal opinion on me."

    "I feel the need to respond to the many posts slamming Pali Math teachers. For starters, MATH IS HARD! Not everyone (possibly even your little genius) is going to be great at higher levels of math. My children (two at Pali) had those teachers everyone warned about. Low and behold, my child experienced that first B in his sophomore year-Oh NO! One of those kids that has to work for every good grade so it was disappointing - he got over it! It would have been easy to blame the teacher, but the truth was, it was just hard. Note to parents: if I just use his small group of friends(from all over LA and diverse ethnically and socioeconomically) as an example - It doesn t appear a B or C ruins lives as they all received early acceptances to some of the top private universities in the country. For those that want to use Pali s scores to support their argument that the Math department is horrible, please look again at those scores and be sure to compare them to other public school choices. Pali isn t perfect but neither are our children. Stop trying to save them from every disappointment-teach them own up and fight through it. Your children just might surprise you."

    "The math department is one of the worst I have ever experienced and they aren't helpful to the student's education."
