Palma provides for both its junior high school and high school students a challenging and innovative curriculum, designed to enable each student to achieve his highest potential as well as prepare him to be successful in a college environment.
At the junior high level, curriculum and the classroom experience focus on creating, or in most cases strengthening, a basic foundation so that students will make an easier transition into the rigorous high school curriculum. At the junior high level, students fortify their critical thinking skills and learn how to express their thoughts through classroom discussion and writing projects. In math and science courses, teachers ensure that students will be ready for high school by building upon elementary concepts to challenge students as well as to reinforce “the basics.”
High school curriculum seeks to further develop critical thinking, advanced writing, and creative reasoning skills across all subject areas. High school students, in their course of study, will gain knowledge in fundamental areas as well as develop a sense of their own strengths and interests — skills that are essential to success in college. All students are expected to work to their greatest potential and challenge themselves as they select their courses. AP and Honors classes are available to students who are qualified and are compelled to greater challenge and achievement. A wide variety of electives allow each student to explore and expand his interests.
