Principal's Message

Welcome to Palmer Way School!

We at Palmer Way have adopted the words from Carl Glickman as our vision for continued success for all students, "to fully educate a student, teachers need to do their best during the temporary time together and to care just as much about the educational experiences that the student will have after leaving. To believe that the job of the classroom teacher is to operate solely in the present with his or her immediate charge is to deny a school the opportunity to provide a cumulative purposeful effect."

Throughout the nation, the three "R's" - Rigor, Relevance and Relationships have been widely accepted as necessary characteristics of schools. We will expand on this concept as we look for ways to identify and increase rigor in and out of the classroom. Finally, we will delve into 21st Century skills as a compliment to our Common Core and rigor focus.
