Miami Palmetto High School Turns 50!

Miami-Palmetto Senior High School is celebrating its Golden Anniversary and the PTSA is having a special membership drive to commemorate it.

Ranked in the top 100 public schools in the country by Newsweek Magazine, the school is one of the reasons so many families move to Pinecrest. I remember the first time I attended a new student orientation with my now senior student. The principal asked all of the parents who had graduated from Palmetto High to stand up and an extremely large percentage of the people in the auditorium stood up.

I wouldn’t have been surprised at the numbers if we were in a small town, but Miami has a very large and transient population. I was thrilled that so many adults felt the school and Pinecrest community had been such a positive experience in their upbringing that they chose to return and raise their families here.

The school will be holding their open house on Tuesday, September 18 at 7:00 p.m. I Love South Florida

    Vicki and Patty,
    Today I met two more Moms who graduated from Miami Palmetto HS, went away to college, and returned to raise their families. As we chatted, we wondered if our kids will want to come back to raise their families and if they do, will they be able to afford it!

    I have a senior there myself this year – the youngest of three. We moved from Coral Gables to Pinecrest when it was time for my oldest to start middle school, specifically so he could be in the Palmetto school district. We made the right decision!

    I’m finding that increasingly more people who move to Pinecrest and Palmetto Bay grew up here themselves. After having lived elsewhere, they are now returning, to raise their own families here… and that speaks VOLUMES for the community and what it has to offer!
