    "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."
