The Associated Student Body (ASB) Leadership Class
at PCHS is a group of student-elected and advisor-appointed student representatives whose purpose is to provide an opportunity for PCHS students to gain experience in civic affairs through participation in ASB activities, promote the welfare and the rights of the Student Body, and further the communication and the cooperation between students and other PCHS stakeholders. ASB Leadership participates in school governance and represents the student body on various sub-committees of the Board. The class also provides forums for student voices and opinions to be heard through Student Senate, Class Meetings, and online communication. ASB Leadership makes a positive contribution to school culture as well as school spirit through spirit weeks, dances, holiday and birthday grams, and the promotion of athletic events. The class also serves to assist administrators, student organizations, the health office, and other school entities in their endeavors to service the school. Athletics
at Palisades follow the CIF Mission, which states that athletic competition is an integral part of the high school experience and should strive to strengthen the integrity of students and adults across the state by promoting the concepts of sportsmanship, honesty and quality academics. These priorities advance the highest principles of character – trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, and caring and good citizenship. Currently PCHS offers 16 different sports at varying levels. Of these 16 sports, 10 are offered for boys and girls. Being a charter school provides PCHS with the flexibility to accommodate more sporting teams and coaches than most schools in adjacent districts. PCHS traditionally competes at the top level in many sports. Students become involved in athletics in many different ways, the most common of which is gaining experience at Paul Revere Charter Middle School. They have developed excellent programs that provide us with opportunity to develop exceptional athletes. Every year coaches visit PRCMS to discuss athletic opportunities at PCHS.
