Our mission is to guide students as they gain and apply the skills, knowledge and concepts needed to succeed in a global society. The faculty and staff of the Palisades School District take pride in working collaboratively to inspire a passion for learning, commitment to excellence, and a respect for individuals and diversity.

The programs and services offered to our students and the professional development opportunities provided for our teachers support our district's commitment to student achievement. The purpose of this site is to inform the Palisades community about our standards aligned system, which is focused on student achievement.
