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.
