    "I liked the teachers and the way they handled not so fun subjects. I really appreciated the fact that they tried to make high school, which is already an awful experience, at least partially tolerable. I gave the school 4 stars overall because I didn't get as much as I needed from the school, but I still got through it and I'm going to college now!"

    "While overall I like going to Palmer High, I do wish some things would change. For instance, updating our facilities and being better at sports; but some things one cannot change just like that."

    "The International Baccaleaureate program at Palmer High School was a great education and experience for my three children. They were well prepared for undergraduate college by the rigor and breadth of the IB diploma program. In addition, the location of PHS in downtown Colorado Springs provided a great urban environment the promoted a wide range of diversity in the student population often lacking in larger, suburban high schools. As a parent, I highly recommend the education and the quality of caring and knowledgeable teachers at PHS."

    "Palmer was a school that really excelled due to teacher effort and not through the work of students. Many students who attend this school are IB students and are very ambitious students, however a majority of the students are remedial and put into higher level classes just because it is a higher level school. This puts a lot of work onto teachers to provide a varied education for students with multiple different academic backgrounds. So many wonderful teachers spread themselves thin to make sure many students are able to do their best and be challenged equally."
