I love this school, everyone from teachers administrators and students are amazing! What makes this school different is all of diversity and acceptance there is. If its bad at home it wont be bad at school, we are truly one big family!

I love how diverse my school is no other school in Amarillo has the vast number of ethnic backgrounds as we do and its fascinating to learn about other cultures and religions that are walking through the halls of my high school. I enjoy going to a school that the faculty and staff are there for the students and not just there to receive a check monthly. The only thing I would want to change is the adversity that my school as a whole has to overcome we are seen as the "ghetto" school because we are on the north side of town. It isn't right that my school gets a label like that because are students don't come from high income families. We have the brightest, most respectful, and persevering students in any school and I will always defend my school no matter what. PaloDuro High School is a great school and always will be a great school.

Many people hold a negative stereotype against this school, which can sometimes be a hindrance to a genuine enjoyable experience at this school. But the best part of getting the opportunity to go to this school is the fact that you will get to make new connections with people that you would not have met anywhere else. Palo Duro is generally a great place to be, and you fall in love with it.
