Palestine is not a great school for your kids. This school is going down the drain too many students going to SAC or ISS and Friday Night School. As long as this go's on than more students grades will drop because they are in diffrent rooms other than the room they should be in.

Palestine High School has improved with the new administators. They try their hardest to keep us in line and they in force the rules. Palestine has recently gotten a dresscode of only solid color polos and i think its great. The teachers are wonderful and they help you to the best of their ability. I have wonderful friends here and most of my classmates are very friendly. I am glad that i go to Palestine High.

HI.. my name is casi, and as a former student, but not a graduate. i have to tell the truth.. the teachers are amazing and quite a pick. All the staff members are there for good cause and purpose. i just wish i would have realized that when i attended from 2004-2007. i like the fact that the campus is secure and strict on the rules that they have written and enforced. The extra curricular activities are what kept me out of drugs and drive byes. there are a lot of females who get pregnant in high school, to include me.. so i just wish that they had a class or something to help young mothers who are alone or even help preventing high school pregnancies..

Palestine high was good when I attended and graduated in 2004. We used to have a thing called chatter box that came on every Friday or Monday that was really fun to watch. Because the seniors did so well putting it together and showing game highlights and all that good stuff. I loved my Drill-team director and my teachers.

Palestine probably isn't the best learning environment for your children.

Although the academic programs are competative with others in the area, I find it curious that the chair of the English Department does not teach English and is located in anotehr building (Career and Technology). This year, 2005-2006, there is a choir director, finally, and after almost 2 years without one dedicated to the position; others have been 'filling-in'. The most disconcerting aspect of the campus is the lack of parent involvement; those who are involved, are involved frequently as the result of student misbehaviour or other disciplinary action. In all fairness, there is a core of concerned parents and community leaders who give of themselves tirelessly. The campus seems to lack focus...other that TAKS-directed curricula.

I am a current graduate of Palestine High School. The best thing about the school is it's teachers understanding of students. The teachers at PHS are some of the best I have ever found in a public school. The principal Mr. Scoggins works hard to see that a good staff is running things under his wing. I am proud to be a graduate of such a school and parents would be wise to look into this area of Texas if a move is nessacery.

I feel that our schools need a great deal of improvement. We need experienced teachers. Not all the teachers that are employed at this school have the education which gives them the right to teach. By saying this I'm referring to those that teach students with learning problems and emotional problems.

I am not a parent! I have visited this school and was highly impressed at everyone I met and talked with! Coach Harrell is very impressive, as well as Mrs. Williamson! Their staff were very courteous and helpful! I was also impressed with every student that I came into contact with! Ths short time I spent at the school was delightful! I thank each of you for a wonderful experience! I wish my school was full of great leaders like yours is. Thank you!
