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.

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.
