For the 5th year in a row, Palisades High School has been named in the top 40% of high schools in the nation (nearly 25,000 schools were ranked) and 100th (out of 750) in the state of Pennsylvania!  This is an exciting honor for Palisades High School and all of our schools - the foundation for high achievement is laid at the elementary and middle school levels!  We are so proud of our students' performance and proud of all of our staff for helping to make this outstanding award happen!  (And just as a bonus, Palisades ranked tops in Upper Bucks!  Way to go team!)

Health Qi Gong (pronounced chee gong) combines stretches, flowing movements, and breath to clear tension from the muscles, reduce stress, and calm the mind. The gentle rhythmic movements of Qi Gong teach you to move with relaxation. Qi Gong helps to create physical and emotional balance in the body. It is both energizing and relaxing. Practiced as a form of exercise it improves vitality, helps to boost the immune system, prevent illness and improves balance.
