Caleb Will
PHS Principal

Hello, Pioneers!

I am Caleb Will and I am the Principal at Palestine High School. I was the high school mathematics teacher at PHS for the first seven years of my education career. I am moving to year THREE as the building administrator and am excited for the upcoming school year. 


Palestine CUSD #3 is known for its dedication to excellence and students and I will continue that tradition. I look forward to working with students in my new setting and hope my enthusiasm and energy are felt by all! 


The administration team, faculty, and staff have worked hard to make big changes for the district. We have updated the curriculum, technology, and opportunities. The PHS building has received tuckpoint to increase its longevity and will finalize this summer. The greenhouse is up and running and we look forward to expanding its capacity inside and outside the classroom.  Thanks to grants and local support, we are expanding our safety and security with a new fob system and doors. We will continue to look for new and innovative ways to impact students, staff, and the community. 

The vision of Palestine High School is to create an atmosphere where learning becomes a way of life, where students develop a work ethic and a sense of responsibility that will serve them well in any endeavor they pursue and where success is measured against potential. My goal is to promote success for all staff and students in the building. PHS students are held to a high standard and I will continue promoting growth for every student. 

Thank you for supporting me. I am a member of the school and community and want to do what is best for the district.
