Palms is a school that nutures ALL children. The Principal,Vice Principal, and many of the teachers, take time out of their busy schedules to ensure everyones' needs are meet. Keep up the good work and test scores, which seem to be the main focus rather than a well rounded education, will undoubtedly increase! :)

Hmm... my daughter went to Castle Heights for kindergarten and had a wonderful experience. I have nothing but good things to say about that school. Glad you are happy with your new school since that is what is most important, but I think the reason Castle Heights is considered an 'excellent' school is because their API is 145 points higher than Palms. That's a pretty big difference if academics are important to you, but there are many things that make a school 'work' for parents and children alike. Glad you found one that works for you.

I switched my daughter from Castle Heights an 'excellent' school to Palms in January. I am so glad I did. The Principal, teachers, staff and parents have no 'attitude' and provide a loving, supportive environment for every child. The YMCA program is far better tahn STAR and half the cost of STAR,. The new Library is beautiful and there are so many more resources for the kids. I am shocked that the rating on Great Schools is lower than Castle Heights which I can only attribute to a lower ratio of stay at home mothers with nothing better to do than rate schools.

The new principal is awesome, the administrators are very kind and helpful, and the teachers are highly qualified and experienced. I believe this school has come a long way, from a not so good reputation, to a school that has improved the most out of any other school I know.

I love the school. My daughter 3grade student started wit Mr. Spencer. My only wish was for him to go to the next grade with her, however, all the teachers at Palms are great. When Mr. Ramirez left I was concern but I also believe that we have to give Mr. Abrams a chance. Mr. Abrams, Ms. Lopez and Mrs. Marks really came through for my daugther who had some difficulty in math. Thank you Palms Elementary

This is the second year my son attends this school and we really like it. He had Mr. Spencer and Mrs. Stoliker as his K teachers and we couldn't be happier. Staff is great, there is a still lot to do, there is room for improvement, and we parent and staff are working on making sure those standards are met.

Mr. Abrahams is an excellent AP, who is now our new Principal. He is caring, supporting, and intelligent. We are the luckiest school to have him as our leader.

Palms is a good school. The school has improved tremendously! Palms is now a School for Advanced Studies (SAS) this means the teachers differentiate instruction to ensure students are taught at their level including high achieving and gifted students. Intervention classes are also offered for students that are below standards to help fill the gaps in their learning and help them to reach grade level standards. The teachers have high expectations for all students. The auditorium has been remodled and looks amazing. Most importantly , Mr. Ramirez, the hard working and dedicated principal has facilitated the opening of a Wonder of Reading library. Everything in the library is brand new!! There are new wooden bookshelves, thousands of new books, and a carpeted nook where the students can sit to read or be read to. Palms also provides a variety of extracurriular activities for students. I would recommend Palms.

I love Palms for my kids! Ever since Mr. Ramirez has joined Palms, I have seened all the changes he has made. Good changes that is! Silent Auctions, Fund raisers, and the one on one attention he has towards parents and kids. The school is diversed and caters to all nationalities. I do wish parents could be more involved. But chnages are happening and I see them...it's definitely getting better. Palms also has 3 different after-school programs. One you pay and the other 2 are free. I recommend Para Los Ninos....my son has been there since kindergarden and he loves it. I have no complains from the teachers or the staff. The office staff is very proffesional and cater to everyone's needs. Ms. Cohen is wonderful and Ms. Williams is also the same. I love Palms Elem.

The YMCA may be fee based, but it is not a drop in program where the kids run wild. It is structured it a modular building with a daily curriculum. . They are not supervised. The YMCA is the only licensed/Structured/Curriculum based afterschool-program at Palms and I love it. Dina is the Director!

Palms Elementary over the last two years has drastically diminished with regards to leadership. The school does not academically challenge the children as they once did. This school has great potential but poor leadership.

Very poor teacher quality
—Submitted by a parent


Posted July 23, 2007

My kindergartner and 4th grader were assigned to top-notch teachers who were dealing with a lot of low performers. The student population is overall economically disadvantaged--therefore, seemed more concerned about 'getting by' than achieving. As a result, academic expectations at this school are not high. The principal is appropriately strict with the studentbody and an excellent fundraiser for the school badly in need of a library. There were several extra cirricular activities offered. The school far exceeded my expectations.

I have a family member in attendance at this school. I have worked at many schools and I have never seen the kind of commitment to children that exist here. They have the best award winning drill team in California. Not only is the choreography classy, but the discipline they gain is life changing. This is a gift from a dedicated teacher! They recently performed at a Clipper's game, and there is no room to showcase their many trophies and awards. They also have a Folkloric dance troupe led by another very dedicated teacher doing traditional Latin dance. Just recently they had two (unpaid) teachers prepare students to perform at the Dodgers opening ceremony using sign language with our National anthem. And that new principal, yea, he runs a tight ship, but this principal has done more to involve parents, beautify, and raise funds for what makes a school great!

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) School Experience Survey asks parents, students and employees about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, engaging, safe, and collaborative. Learn more

We organized questions from the LAUSD School Experience Survey into five categories. The respondent group-level results (parents, students, and school employees) show the percent of each respondent group that agree or strongly agree that the school has positive results for that category.

Overall school results for each category are calculated by averaging across group-level results, ensuring that each respondent group is equally represented. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all LAUSD schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
