    As a former student I look back at my four years at Palisade High and the memories are nothing but fond. The teaching staff prepared me for learning at the University level and the relationships I made with those teachers has shown to be invaluable. I can e-mail anyone of my former teachers and they will help me with a paper or project with the same kind of care and respect that I recieved while in school.
