Multiple teachers have been degrading to the students. Principal does nothing when it is brought to her attention. Teachers are not very responsive to parental concerns over their child's needs. Want to switch your child's class? Not going to happen. Want help with a failing grade? Not going to happen. Find a different school within the district for the best interest of your child. Unless, however, you are there for the preschool program. Those teachers are wonderful and caring. My children once loved going to school, that changed when we moved here, they now loathe it.

I give Palominas big round of Applause. They do great with the students. My child is just going into the 6th grade and from her test scores last year she should do very well this year. Big Big thumbs up for the two best 5th grade teachers. She still talkes about her teachers from last year and how much she learned.

Overall, this school has alot of untapped potential, this year began with a new Principal with a genuine interest in his position of leadership for this school. Some of the faculty has changed as well this year with a positive influence as well. We are happy with this school and so are our children for the most part. We do feel however this school needs to 'rethink' it's disipline 'protocol' they place children face forward to a wall or fence for their punishment during their recess times for any offense whether it be behavior or academic as they(the staff) see fit. We feel that this is rather degrading and ineffective as it is GREATLY overused!! Outside of that, the school would benefit from a art program and facitlities to accomodate their track program rather than in the parent pick up parking lot.

When we arrived @ Palominas last year I was concerned that such a small school could adequately met the needs of my then 5th grader & kindergartner. Not only did they met the needs of my children but they surpassed them. The teachers are teaching in a positive & exciting way. They involve the kids in their own education so that they learn much more then they did in Md. The teachers are there before & after school to help the students. I was very impressed that any time I had a concern it was already being addressed & in fact I was able to be involved. The principle (who has now retired) set great standards for the faculty & students to live up to & they all did! Kudos, Palominas Elementary!

I think that Palominas School is an excellent school to send your kids too. i started going to this school in kindergarden, and I stayed there until I graduated(or 'promoted') from 8th grade. The teachers were really caring and really involved with their students. The principal was one of the best principals you'll ever meet. He did what he needed to do, and he was very well respected. He also works with parents very well. Oh and that last parent was talking about how high our test scores are, and they're right. So I think that it would be a wise idea to send your children to this school. I'm in high school right now but I still miss Palominas more than anything. So hopefully this will help you with your decision, and your opinion on this school. Go Pintos!

Palominas School is a great school. We moved here from Kyrene School Dist. Palominas spends its funds and energies on the children. Where it should go. The teachers are caring, up to date in their educational techniques, and spend a lot of their own personal time with kids that need extra help. The school principal is the best I have seen in a long time. The children respect him. The kids are thriving here...just look at the test scores. You should send your kids to this school. The children are all encouraged to join all sports (and they all get to participate)and all band levels. There are special needs programs for those children who need extra help. Bravo. Continue the good work.

The teachers in this school as well as the principal are totally unresponsive to the needs of the children. If you value your childs emotional well being, I would search for another school.

I have 2 children enrolled at this school, one in 2nd and one in 8th. The teachers here have after school programs to assist my 2nd grader in her reading, they also work with her in the morning before school. My son though smart doesn't like applying himself. The teachers here go out of their way to keep him interested and working. It has been a world of difference enrolling them here from their old schooll which was a DOD school on Post. These educators keep me informed with calls and emails also on what my kids are doing. I am in the Army and with my hours I don't spend as much time as I would like helping my kids.

I feel my children are getting a good education from Palominas Elementary School. The strict discipline and high standards academically are what make this school one of the best schools in the state of Arizona.
