Being an active member of the community and having my children attend the schools, I am very pleased with the quality of education at Pal-Mac. There are many opportunities in the IB program, AP courses and Gemini courses for the students to take advantage of in preparation for college. The administration, teachers my children have had and counselors have always been very helpful, knowledgeable and working in the best interest of my children. There are many opportunities for growth in the arts and athletics. I am very happy my children attended school in this district and have grown up in this supportive community. My children were more than prepared for post secondary education after graduating from Pal-Mac.

Pal Mac is a horrible school district. Half of the teachers care and the other half are there for a paycheck and to pass the kids through. My daughter has attended Pal- Mac for 10 years the older she became the worse the teaching practices became. Its not all about sports people, its about an education as well. When teachers don't understand how to conjugate a verb the school is in trouble. Happily this is the last year there, the new administration is lax at best I forgot to mention that my child has only had actual textbooks from the school for the last three years

For a small community like this one, Pal-Mac is one of the better schools I could ask for. They have a lot of sports open to us that some schools double our size don't have. Some of our sports have been very successful in the past few years. When it comes to academics, most of the teachers provide entertainment as well as a great education to the students. As a smaller school, we don't get as many benefits with AP courses or things like that, but they're working to add more oppurtunities for advanced student. Like all schools, there are some teachers that are there that you may think why, but overall I couldn't ask for too much more.

I graduated from Pal-Mac and although the school receives some bad publicity here and there, it provides a solid academic and athletic experience. Taking some of the hardest courses the school offers, I feel as though I was more than prepared for college. Many of the teachers at Pal-Mac are phenomenal and could easily teach at a college or university. In regards to student cliques, it appeared that almost anyone could find a group of close friends.

Both of my sons graduated from Pal Mac. I agree with them that their education was very good and prepared them for their futures. They did challenge themselves, taking some AP courses. The sports program is broad and well run. The music program is second to none with select choir and the bands.

Pal-Mac is the best school. People are friendly, and the teachers really care. They want you to succeed as much as you do. This school is a great place to learn. And the principal (Barb Persia) is the best principal a school could have.

I myself went to this district all my life and my kids will as well, I made the fatal move of moving to Florida, and they desrve better then what they have there. Its not the teachers or the faculty's fault if your child cannot pass, I blame the parent. This district has very high standards for children with learning disabilities, my son has several and the school district has done wonders for him. Any school needs parent involvement to be successful and without that, your child will be a failure. I give this district kudos for doing their best with all the state budget cuts and still being able to be one of the best schools in the area. I would recommend everyone to seek education like what is offered here.

I am sorry that my child was subjected to this school. It was bad when I was there and now it is a 100% worse. Most of the teachers (not all) are lazy and pay more attention to sports and there own personal problems than they do the students. The poor students are always getting boosts and grades they don't deserve because they are coddled. The smart students get attention because of the obvious. The middle level student, who needs help gets squat. If you are thinking about sending your student to PalMac, think again. If you do go to PalMac and things seem okay. Wait awhile, the counselors will screw it up.

If it is at all possible I would recomend staying as far away from Pal-Mac Schools as possible... This school district is so far down the tubes that it would take about every possible state and fedral grant to bring it back up... Believe me, I spent my whole school career there...
