Very positive experience with Palmer High School. Both the teachers and counselers are truly involved with student development and excellence. Tons of opportunity for student involvement in activities and athletics as well as the International Baccalaureate program (I belive its the only one in Alaska). The school also maintains a very positive student and family culture without some of the issues/probems of bigger schools. Have not seen any evidence of bullying or "worldly" activites from the student body. Most of the students I have interacted with seem very grounded and down to Earth. I would recommend Palmer High School to anyone PCSing or moving to the area.
