Paly PTSA: Parents, teachers, and students in partnership.

One of the hallmarks of Palo Alto High School is the strength of its community and the vibrant connection between staff, students, and parents. The high level of membership participation in Paly PTSA demonstrates one important measure of this strength. Your membership does the following:
