Miami Palmetto Senior High PTSA
For over 50 years the Miami Palmetto Senior High School PTSA has worked with teachers, parents and administrators to cultivate excellence in academics, sports and leadership opportunities for our students. Through volunteerism, advocacy, fundraising and community action, we make sure that every child is welcome at Miami Palmetto Senior High, and that every family finds a home in the PTSA.

Palmetto's Hall of Fame
Although Palmetto alumni have long made a name for themselves across many disciplines and throughout the world, no formal Alumni Association existed until recently. Some local graduates briefly explored the idea of founding such an association in the early 2000’s, but it was not until 2010, when PTSA parent Susan Admire Harris offered to spearhead a steering committee comprised of alumni and Palmetto parents, that the first important steps were taken.
The Association has its own website (www.palmettohighalumni.org), where members may seek out news about the school and former classmates as well as information regarding upcoming reunions.
MPSH is now an electronics waste recycling drop-off point. Leave your used monitors, TVs, fax machines, cell phones and other electronics with Ms. Shlachtman in the science department at any time. The PTSA will receive a cash donation for every item you recycle, plus you help out the planet. It’s a win-win!
