Palms Elementary School Reviews

My child has been at Palms Elementary since the kindergarden and I must admit that I was very impressed with each and everyone of the teachers.  the teachers are so kind, keep you inform and I really seen the effort put into educating the children.  I am very pleased and my child is too. I really love the after school programs, they have about 3-4. I would recommend this school even though the API is slightly below the requirement because I know that soon they will be soaring without a doubt.

My son has been a student of Palms Elementary school for 5yrs, I think Palms has great teachers that care about their students i've always had good relatioships with the staff and teachers my son has excelled at Palms, I also think the principal this year Mr.Abrams is a great addition to the school. There are things I would like to improve on like test scores, afterschool programs, cleaniness in the bathrooms and school grounds, overall I like the school and what they are trying to do for our kids, parents need to be more involved in their childrens lives to go over homework and quiz their kids at home so the test scores can get better, it starts from the home and ends at the home.

I think Palms Elementary is an outstanding school. They try their hardest to make each and every child learn and not get left behind and they do.
