Welcome to Palestine High School.  The entire staff of Palestine High School is looking forward to having a great 2022-2023 school year with you and your student. 

Our goal is to create a safe, nurturing, learning environment that is conducive to student learning. In order to achieve this goal, we will teach our students social skills such as respect for yourself, respect for others, and respect for property. As a staff, we will model the behaviors we expect to see from our students. In addition, we will go to great lengths to make sure that students are not bullied, intimidated, or introduced to drugs or alcohol.


We have resolved to prepare students for college and career by working together to improve academic performance, increase teacher quality, improve school climate, increase leadership effectiveness, use quality data to drive instruction, increase parent and community involvement, and increase learning time. I am confident that we will meet our goals with the continued efforts of our staff, students, parents, and the entire Palestine community. I look forward to working with you throughout the year to insure the success of your student and Palestine High School.

Our Mission...
The Mission of Palestine Independent School District is to foster relationships that Excite, Engage, and Empower our students and community to achieve Excellence.
