    "This school.. Some great teachers.. Some teachers give to many referrals.. Not a place for racist people.. Not really much bullying going on.. Drugs and smoking are a bog problem here. So if you worry about your child getting into that i'd be careful. . Soda machines only have diet . Some classes you do absolutely nothing others they pile work on work.. Big school, a lot of walking . Can get confusing sometimes.. Theres not much of a popularity problem.. Theres the boys( mostly) & girls who think they're better than everyone because they play football or cheer or what not.. Its an okay school. Some call it Palmghetto .. This came from a student. So ya"

    "I am a senior here at Palmetto high school +class of 2013) and I can ensure you that palmetto us great school with great opportunities. I have been a part of the Aice Program,Dual enrollment, and honors program for four years. These are all programs that will you stand out in the crowd to colleges 60% of my class are graduating high school with college classes already done. This school works to make sure everyone achieves their success. We have went from a D school to a b school in a year. Everything is getting stronger and the students here want to learn. The environment is so comfortable. We have had no fights or drama. If you ask someone who never went to palmetto what type of school it was they'd tell you many negatives. That us because outsiders voice their opinion in the past. The school has changed, there's new teachers and administration. They have everything going good."

    "I am a teacher at palmetto. While I think we have an overall decent administration and many good teachers, it seems to me that there are some teachers out there who are too lenient and lax based just based on student behavior. Some do not enter enough grades and some put all their grades in at the last minute. It drags down morale, and referrals/conferences rarely help student motivation. Some classes are huge (approaching 40 students per class!) so this also does not help create an educational environment. Unfortunately, many students do not have a stable family structure at home and this also leads to a difficulties in the classroom, specifically with a teacher's expectations for achievement. There is a big, big drug/alcohol/absentee problem and many do not fear the repercussions. The school could improve with stricter guidelines for teachers, more guidance from administration, and a firmer, vocalized stance from the principal, specifically with using the intercom more. Overall, it's an average/okay school, but it could be so much better, because there is potential, but it is unrealized."

    "I attended PHS in the late eighties. Even though I'm fond of the memories, the education that I received was not very good. I used to find myself using the excuse, "I went to Palmetto High," as an reason for my lack of knowledge in the real world. Oddly enough, people understood what I was talking about. I hope that things are better now for the children that are attending PHS."
