I love that every Friday Flag ceremonies end with a reminder to students in which they say together, "Is it safe and is it the right thing to do"

We moved to Capo Beach in the summer of 2015 and were hesitant about the school at first because of the 7 out of 10 rating from Great Schools. Since then, the rating has increased to 8. The Principal, Mr. Visca, is absolutely wonderful. We have children in 2 different grade levels and their teacher are fantastic. Palisades has a very active PTA with year round functions. But most important to me, is the strong sense of community and family that has been fostered by the entire staff and families that make up Palisades Elementary. This school is truly a great environment to raise your children in.

Great teachers! Principle seems to be on the side of the parent, nice guy, but don't expect to get certain things done! He has a tendency to bury his head in the sand when action needs to be taken.

My son loved Palisades. He went from 2nd-5th. He loved all of his teachers and had a great experience.

This school has a new principal, which has totally changed the atmosphere on campus for the better! He is open to new ideas and is very enthusiastic. The situation is a complete 180 since the last review was posted in 2010. The office staff are most kind and helpful, a very active PTA and OUTSTANDING teachers!

We have been here two years so far and notice there is a bigger emphasis on rewards for raising money than anything. No community projects, no special ed inclusion, no genuine interactions between principal and parents. Very cold. Closed. Our children are here because this is 'our' school (though it doesn't seem that way).

How can you not love a school overlooking the Pacific Ocean? It is a great environment for learning, offers a great after school progran in the YMCA, and the faculty are committed to children (even in the midst of all kinds of budget cuts).

I love the teachers at Palisades. They are kind, caring, and dedicated to their students. The parents are real, accepting and dedicated to the success of the children as well.
