I am a former student and when I went there it was great. Since then my sibling has attended that school and the only thing good there is the teachers. It is one of the dirtiest schools in the district, no discipline if something happens! There are much more problems. They could do way better, to me this school is not the school that I attended. It has changed so much!

I have had two children attend Palla School from Kinder all the way to 5th grade. The staff was always helpful and attentive to my needs. The teachers are all well adversed to the State Standards. I highly recommend this school to meet your childs needs.

I have two children attending there. A kinder and a 4th . Staff could be better. I find them to be on most instances rude, and scarstic. So i give them a1 star. The teachers however , I give a 5 star review. These are some of the best, caring, teachers i have ever met. I come from the city schools district. And was under the impression that all teachers were like those. But they have proved me wrong. You can leave a message and they will return your call that day. You can visit or schedule meetings if you have any quesitons or concers. They care for your child, and there eduation, If they feel they need more help they will let you know and direct you to the right places and resources if needed. The yard duty staff, is wonderful. They are great. I give the school and teachers a 5. MY only negative is the office staff. ALL office staff.

Palla has a wonderful After School Program that is provided free of charge. It provides engaging, disguised learning activities that reinforce what my child learns durin the day.

My children have attened Palla since Kindergarten and I have fought to keep them there. I even drive 30 minutes each way every day to take them there. The teachers are wonderful and very caring and understanding to my children's individual needs.

I think the principal of this school needs to understand that learning is important. You don't keep kids out of class for two days just because they won't apologize to someone. Education is important. The kids learn nothing sitting in the office for two days.
