The best way to know that Palma is right for you is to see it for yourself. Palma encourages all interested students to visit our school and become a “Chieftain For A Day.” Your family will have the opportunity to tour the school. Once parent(s) depart, you will visit with the Palma student body and faculty and engage in classroom activities with your student host.
