This school has some of the most engaged staff that I have ever seen. They have high expectations of their students in academics but they also know how to have fun. The teachers and staff perform for the kids during their Renaissance Rallies which has truly been entertaining every time! I think this shows the students that they need to work hard but can also play hard. I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!! My child has accelerated her learning and has been motivated by such a strong learning environment. I feel that she is more than ready for her first year in High School. -Parent

My child was bullied 3 times within the first 3 weeks of school. They did put a stop to it. I wish teachers would send information on homework and projects directly to parents via email or keep website updated. The school is Ok, not super impressed yet. I hope next year is better.

I graduated from Las Palmas this year and I must say it was the best year LP has had i encourage parents to get their kids involved in ASB its teaches kids leadership and WEB is another program where you as the eighth grader show your 6th graders around the school. my year was phenominal because i was a comissioner in asb and a WEB leader. We also have Renaissance rallies that give honor to the hundreds of students who show us they want to succeed in school and keep improving by having the most improved student win a ipod. Las Palmas is an amazing school.

We have a strong administration & staff that is compassionate and on top of any problems. They really promote that the student's wellfare is their utmost priority. I have been here 10 years and feel each year is a little better than the last.

As a parent, I feel my child is safe and the curriculum is preparing him for high school and future years. The Renaissance Program increases kids to do better. I love our middle school.

Las Palmas has great programs that I have not heard of at other schools. They offered a 6th grade orientation which made my student feel much more at ease about going there. The teachers have been remarkable with keeping me informed. I couldn't imagine a more professional staff anywhere else.

The Teachers at this school are good. The Admin staff are a big minus for this school. The principal cares more for becoming principal of the year then she dose the kids. She is rude to parents that come in to her office and her staff folloes her lead. I would never sent any more kids to this school 3 was more then enough, I have one more child that will be going to middle school and I will be choosing Treweek.
