Welcome to Palmerton Area School District’s website.

Palmerton schools are friendly communities of enthusiastic young people and supporting adults.

Palmerton Area School District and its community is committed to the success of all students in academics, athletics, art, music, and technology. We are fortunate to have a staff of caring, quality educators who are dedicated to our mission. Their focus is on growth, achievement, and success for our twenty-two hundred students, K-12.

We are very proud of our enthusiastic, well behaved students, highly dedicated and very talented teachers and support staff, and supportive school board.

Palmerton is located sixteen (16) miles north of Allentown, PA and one (1) hour south of Scranton, PA off Exit 34-Mahoning Valley (New Dual#34/74)-of the Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

Our Carbon County school district is comprised of two (2) elementary schools, K-6, and a middle school, grades 7-8. Grades 9-12 are housed in our high school. Our young people are able to elect technical, academic, and business curriculum. Students with interests in a vocational career path may attend the Carbon County Vocational-Technical School.

We continually strive to help each of our students achieve their future dreams through a school system that remains focused on our central mission, our students.
