Saturday school provides students with the opportunity to receive attendance credit for those days missed from school. Students must maintain 90% attendance in order to be successful at Palomar. Also, Saturday school provides time for students to complete additional school work in order to receive their credits more quickly.
Tutoring is available at Palomar everyday. Morning schedule students attend from noon to 1:00 pm and afternoon scheduled students attend from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm. Tutoring also allows students to earn attendance credit. Three tutoring sessions eliminate a day’s absence.
Sr. College Study Skills Class
The Palomar College Study Skills Program offers a unique opportunity for seniors to earn their first college credit. Palomar students take this elective course which is team-taught by a Southwestern College Professor and a Palomar teacher. In the class students learn about and apply for college admission and financial aid, how to choose classes, good study skills, and take at least one field trip to Southwestern Campus. The average student earns two high school electives and one college elective.
NOSB (National Ocean Sciences Bowl)
The purpose of the NOSB is to increase knowledge of the oceans on the part of high school students and their families, as well as to raise the overall public awareness of ocean-related research and its significance to the world. To prepare for the competition, students participate in a variety of field trips, including whale watching trips and tours of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. NOSB provides a unique learning experience for our Palomar students which culminates in a district wide competition that, by winning, can ultimately lead to National recognition.
