Palmdale High School Reviews
teachers do their best with what they have, but is sad to see that they are not fully suported by administration. i requested the principal in my child IEP and he was "busy" and din't show up.
It really show me how much administration care.
so i decided to move them (2) out to another school.
I think the staff (Teachers) are hard workers doing just about all they can do to teach/instruct the students daily. However with many holidays with low test scores something should be changed. Perhaps more school less holidays in these difficult times. If less holidays are not possible, then perhaps more class time, better tools (laptops) set the student up to successed at all costs. In conculsion the teachers and staff at PHS care about the my childs future and have helped alot. I have noticed the staff could use more time, and better help in the classroom.
palmdale high is a very cool school but they need to clam down with dress code
