Matanuska-Susitna School District Boundaries

Palmer High School

Palmer High School

Buyers often focus on a particular schools boundaries in their home search.  Sometimes their children are already in a particular school or perhaps they have heard good things about a different school. For the past ten years or so the Colony District has been the most popular. 

Back in 2004, I happened to live in the Colony district but chose Palmer High School for one of our daughters because it has an International Baccalaureate Program, as well as a fantastic music department. Since then, we’ve moved into the Palmer district and our son attends there fulltime.

I am usually a little uncomfortable to tell someone that a home is in their desired school district because these boundaries can change.  Couple that with the fact that new district boundaries were historically hard to determine.  You had to get a hard copy of the new map after the boundaries were changed. 

Thankfully, the Mat-Su School District has put these boundaries on web.  All the boundary maps are listed here Please remember that these boundaries can change with shifts of population or when a new school is built.
