Palmyra-Eagle School District is a wonderful rural school district with small class sizes, excellent opportunities to outdoor activities, including FFA, that surrounding districts don't offer, supportive staff and now new administration. I wouldn't send my children anywhere else!

Absolutely amazing small country district! While small, it is big on individual attention and allows many opportunities for students to participate in any and all activities they choose. Teachers and coaches offer incredible support while serving a diverse student body and making sure every child succeeds. Awesome FFA and Special Education programs!

I'm very happy with the education Palmyra Eagle gives to my child. Teachers are very hands on and helpful. They go out of their way to educate our kids. Smaller class size is awesome. Great group of kids and families.

Worst so called school district in tbe state. School administrators are a bunch of clowns just there to collect a paycheck. Zero improvements in this district for years.

This school has all that is needed to provide a great education for your student. The small class size provides great relationships between the student and teacher, as well as other students. It''s more of a family atmosphere and not getting lost in the crowd. All three of our children completed their entire schooling here and have gone on to complete college in four years and have a successful career and life. Students only get back what they, and their parents, put into it.

With better options in surrounding districts, I would not subject any child to this district. The district cannot compete with other districts that are significantly better, and with so many children school choicing out of the district... the District lacks the funds to do a complete overhaul that is needed. Yet they continue to say they are doing fine and improving.
