Welcome to Palms Middle School!
Palms Middle School is the best middle school in Los Angeles. We're a neighborhood school, a School For Advanced Studies, and a Gifted/High Ability Magnet School. Please read our Principal's Message and explore our website to learn about Palms Middle School.
We are proud of our academic program and the education we offer, including our Academic Performance Index (API) score of 878, our State Test Scores, our many cultural, artistic, and other programs, and our friendly and safe atmosphere. Each year since 2011-2012, LAUSD has recognized the Palms Middle School Magnet as an Excelling Magnet or an Achieving Magnet (the top 2 categories) based on the School Performance Framework (SPF).

Meal Applications to be Mailed in Summer
Parents should watch for their 2015-2016 Application for Meal Benefits, which will be mailed to your household during the Summer 2015 break. This can provide students with free or reduced price meals at school.
The sooner you fill it out and return it the better. Every family should submit this form, whether or not you think you'll qualify, because every qualified student should have the benefits, and school funding depends on full participation of those who are eligible.
Starting July 1, 2015, you can also apply online at:
New Family Meet and Greet: Saturday, August 8, 2015
All new students and their families are invited to join us in the park on August 8!
This will be a fun time to bond and make new friends before Camp Palms and school starts.
Welcome Palms Visitors
We're pleased to welcome a number of prospective Palms families to our campus today (Monday October 6, 2014) for our first Visitor Day for the 2014-2015 school year.
You'll be given a tour of the campus grounds, facilities, and a peek at some classrooms, with a student from Student Leadership as your guide. Enjoy your visit!
Farewell and good luck to the
Palms Middle School Class of 2015!
