As in year’s past, our school will continue to offer academic excellency via a myriad of programs such as The Cambridge Program, Advanced Academics/Gifted courses, Special Education (SPED Program), Fine Arts (Theater/Drama, Art, and Band), Foreign Languages (Spanish, French, and Mandarin), Physical Education, and the Forensic Science Program.

We look forward to working with you as we strive to attain new academic heights under very new circumstances.  Remember to keep up to date with school events via our website at or the Palmetto Middle School PTSA App.  All guidelines, calendars, events, and any pertinent information regarding our school may be accessed on both locations.

This will be a year of setting and reaching goals.  Together, we will take our school’s commitment to helping our students learn to the next level, regardless of the struggles we may face.  Our dedication to promote high-quality education for all students will continue to be our priority at Palmetto Middle School.  It is time for us to embark on a new quest, where we, as Lancers, show that we are Virtually Unstoppable.

Again, we welcome you to the Palmetto Middle School family and wish everyone a successful and safe 2020-2021 school year.
