Monica: My son started at this school in the 2nd grade. What a difference I saw in my son after transferring him out of his 1st grade school! The acceptance, love and genuine care he received from the staff at V. Palmer inspired him to want to do good for himself. The staff is on regular communication with the parents and students and are always trying new things to inspire and motivate the children. This is a Title 1 school - but don't let that fool you into thinking that the school is weak or lacking ~ in fact it's quite the opposite. All of the staff and teachers are enthusiastic about teaching, challenging and preparing our kids for the future. Love the Palmer 'Family'.
