Palnez School is two campuses operating under one concept: To cultivate and motivate your child's academic growth, and instill values which develop good moral character.
Honesty Respect Discipline are some of the many virtues we stress and strengthen in all phases of school life Palnez School began as a preschool and kindergarten in 1969 and in 1975, expanded into elementary grades 1st through 6th with the addition of Palnez Academy.
The Academy was established with the goal of providing social, emotional, physical, and intellectual experiences that develop a positive self image for each child, and for you to feel secure knowing that your child is learning in a happy, relaxed atmosphere.
The Academy is a small private school which offers individual attention.
But more importantly the entire faculty has the opportunity to know each child, to recognize and encourage their capabilities and special interests.
There is more time to promote self-direction and self-evaluation, allowing for indulgences in creative projects, which make learning so much more fun.
