Welcome to PJHS and the Palestine Independent School District.  This is truly a great place for students to learn and to grow!  Our staff members and administrative team are dedicated to helping students reach their academic potential.  As students’ progress through these formative years, teachers and faculty provide a safe environment for learning and growing. We are builders, providing a strong and solid bridge to support students as they make the journey from pre-adolescence to future schools and careers. 

PJHS recognizes that every child needs and deserves academic support, a nurturing environment, and the opportunity to learn in his or her own unique way. Students, teachers, and others in the learning organization must commit exemplary efforts in order to obtain exemplary results.  If you are a part of the PJHS family, I know that you share our sense of pride in our school.  If you are not already part of the PJHS family, we invite you to visit us and see what a wonderful place this is for your child’s educational journey…
