many teachers at this school are great. However the environment is discouraging and learning is not as high on the agenda as it should be.

Overall it was a great experience to be in Palmdale high school. I met some of the best people of my life there however there is something to be said about academics. I feel as if it wasn't taken as seriously as it should have and the teachers never made me feel prepared for exams. I will forever feel a connection to the school but academically it needs to be improved and more strict.

I love Palmdale high school because we have the best student involvement. There's amazing programs and clubs literally for anything you'd like to be a part of. We have Health Careers Academy, FFA, Falcons Garage, Solar Car, and so many more. This school knows how to make high school fun for you. I also think the help you receive from the teachers and the rest of the staff is fantastic.The teachers here make it really easy for you to build a strong teacher student relationship. I have many teachers that I know I can come to for help and resources and that's something I really appreciate.Many students have gone out to big schools from here and that was all with the help of the staff here. Overall, I think Palmdale High is a place that filled with opportunities to be the best you can be with the best support. The only thing I believe would make a good change here would to make a club for low income students to be able to get clothing or supplies for free.
