Quality of Palo Alto's High School Education?
Original post made by parent, South of Midtown, on Mar 21, 2007
I noticed many families sending their kids to private middle schools even though they live in Palo Alto. I am wondering what families (especially from private middle school) thought of the Public High Schools experience. It seems the parents with positive experiences are vocal and those that take the kids out of public school keep their opinions quiet. Any "new" High School info would be appreciated. I do not consider the test scores/college placement a true indicator of the schools' quality... Palo Alto has an amazing gene pool and many kids are brilliant, they would excel anywhere. I have a bright, quiet child and want to provide the best high school education possible.
