For Palm Meddle School, Moreno Valley, California ***There are excellent teachers and very good administration in Palm Meddle School. Although I understand work needs to be done to get this school up to the standards necessary for all students to achieve geometry level in 8th grade. Right now is not inclusive to all mainly due to resources. Education in this school strives to include all students not just a certain group. I hope to win money for Palm Meddle School for much needed projects, assistants to the teachers, and to provide that extra helping hand to those students that need the must academically. Lest remember that with the right type of instructional approached any, ANY student can thrive and succeed ones expectations.

My son is in 8th grade at Palm. This is his third year. I'm content with the way the Principal takes care of things. I like how they encourage and motivate kids with award assemblies. At Palm Middle School kids can find one of many clubs. I really like how teachers have before and/or afterschool tutoring. The afterschool program Think Together is great, the coordinator is great.

Palm is an awesome place for kids to be. Learning is their focus. I have found the teachers and administration to be helpful and cooperative. My son loves Palm.

The biggest problem at Palm Middle School is the same problem for all of the Moreno valley Unified School District, that of dramatic turnover. The turnover is bad because they get too many new teachers that have not faced classroom experience and are not ready to deal with students. Overall, the programs are weak to non-existant.

The school is good, schedule is set, classes are well organized. The only problem I have with the school is it is year round, I favor the traditional.

I have a child currently attending Palm Middle School in the 6th grade. I have an older son now a Jr in High School that also attended. My experiences have been very positive. I find the staff very helpful and courteous every time I need information. The teachers are easy to work with and I have not found one that was not willing to help my child or talk with me when I requested help. I have become involved with the school by volunteering when I have time and I see the teachers at work. They take on much more than people realize because so many Parents relinquish all responsibility for teaching their child once they are in school. I admire the teachers and staff at Palm. They do a very good job.

My 7th grade child has attended Palm for 2 yrs. I'm very disappointed in the teachers and most of the other staff members at this school. They focus on the small petty things rather than the larger picture/problems within the school. The ranking this school has for its test scores speaks volumes. They have a 4 out of 10. My child is testing at a 92% in math on the CAT9 and yet has a D in class. The teachers are defensive and don't wish to work with the parents nor students. Teachers lash out at their students for no reason and belittle them on a daily basis. I understand that a huge % of parents don't care, but some of us do. Stop shutting us out of our childrens education! Get better trained teachers/staff and learn to pick up a phone. I wouldn't recommend this school, should've gone to Vista Heights!

My son is ending his 6th grade year at Palm middle school, which is his first year in public school after attending private school since the 1st grade. I have to say that it was a difficult transition for him and he has shown a great deal of improvement. I appreciate the counselors, and teaching staff (before and after school tutoring) for their support. Hang in there 6th grade teachers! The administrative department is uplifting, supportive and show their passion not only for the students, they also make the effort to communicate their support to thier families. Thank you Mr. Jacobs (Asst. Principal) you are inspiring. To the parents, know that a child requires a balance as a three legged stool- parent, teacher, and love!
