This traditional setting provides each student the opportunity to excel in their area of interest through a non-restrictive, content-oriented curriculum as well as a wide range of extra-curricular activities. A hallmark of the Palmyra experience is an enthusiastic and dedicated staff interacting with concerned and involved parents to meet student needs.

The school offers academic development, college preparation, school-to-careers training, mentoring programs, and a variety of interventions for students with special needs. Students, alumni, and staff continue to earn recognition on the local, state, and national levels.

Palmyra High School is proud of its well-deserved reputation for "Excellence in Education."
