As a parent I l really am proud of my childrens school. Palestine has great discipline now. The school has wonderful teachers that go beyond the teachers expectations. I have kids that already graduated from the school and are doing great in college.I still have more to go I am proud of the elementary, middle, and High school. .

I am a Palestine Wheatley High School Alumni. I was the top of my class. This school has wonderful teachers but could use better education practices. I was not properly prepared for collegic level classes and I had to take triple the classes to obtain my degree than required. I was disappointed with my overall high school education and I agree that the system needs a stricter set of administration.
