Palisades is Selected as a District of Distinction

District Administration mag­a­zine announced Palisades School District as one of the 45 dis­tricts nation­wide named as a District of Distinction.

Districts of Distinction was estab­lished by District Administration to hon­or school dis­tricts that are lead­ing the way with new ideas that solve chal­lenges. Honorees are select­ed based on the quan­tifi­able results and replic­a­bil­i­ty of their ini­tia­tives. The July 2018 Districts of Distinction hon­orees were select­ed by the magazine’s edi­tors from numer­ous nominations.”

Palisades was hon­ored for our Career Pathways Programs which con­tin­ue to expand in flour­ish in our dis­trict.  Our career path­ways include:  Medical Career Pathways, Global Studies Pathways, Business Pathways and our new­ly intro­duced Engineering Pathways.  In these path­way pro­grams, high school stu­dents have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­cen­trate in an area of focus for future employ­ment.  In the case of the Medical Career Pathway Program, stu­dents are intro­duced to the oppor­tu­ni­ties avail­able for employ­ment at St. Luke’s Hospital and Coordinated Health, both edu­ca­tion­al part­ners with our dis­trict.  Students also earn col­lege cred­its by enrolling in the Dual Enrollment Program (basic trans­fer­able col­lege cours­es) offered by Bucks County Community College at our high school.
