Twentynine Palms Elementary School Reviews
I believe we have teachers that really care about the students here, but the school curriculum is lacking. My child is in third grade and has not brought home one writing assignment. His ability to write is worse this year than in second grade at another school. They only teach science/social studies once a week and the learning is minimal at best. I believe next year we will be homeschooling just to catch up! Sad!
