Dear Palms Middle School Community,

Our theme for this school year is The Comeback! We will face new challenges and experiences for us all, but we will move forward together, supporting one another and ensuring our students receive a quality education in preparation for high school and beyond.

It is an honor and privilege to serve as the Principal at Palms Middle School. It is evident from my conversation with staff, students, community members, and alumni that Palms Middle School is a very special and beloved school community. I look forward to serving this incredible learning community with the continued passion and fervor many speak about.

As a WASC Accredited Middle School, we expect every Palms student to:

  • Prepare
  • Achieve
  • Lead
  • Motivate
  • Succeed

And this will be accomplished through Palms Tree Strength (Fundamental Focus):

  • Creating a Safe and Nurturing Environment
  • Rigorous & Robust Academic Programs
  • College & Career Explorations
  • Social Emotional Learning & 100% Attendance
  • Parental Outreach

Every teacher and staff member is part of our dedicated support team. We are committed to the safety and success of every student. Please do not hesitate to call the school at 310-253-7600 if you have any questions.

In Partnership,

Leonard Choi
Palms Middle School
