Resources are scarce. Even though the school receives funding many classes lack textbooks and necessary supplies. Phones don't work, there are frequent PA interruptions, and admin is fairly ineffective handling behavioral problems which stem from the upper grades to the middle school. Having AP students in classes with special needs students makes it difficult to get through a lesson, especially when equipment is left broken. Most stakeholders do not believe the school is represented accurately in media. Especially allowing failing students to promote if their parents complain. Admin coerces teachers to adjust grades for students who have not completed any work. Students caught with weapons or who threaten others are permitted back in class sometimes the same day.

The teachers at Palomares are caring and knowledgeable in their subjects. Even though the district and site admin don't really seem to know what they are doing, the teachers do their best.

Amount of homework: Not enough

Develops respect: Agree
July 08, 2015
The students know how to be respectful. If they do not, the school is mostly ineffective in improving student respect.

There are many great people at Palomares. Unfortunately district and school site attempts to improve are abandoned or never followed-through.

I think its great, besides the uniform, it doesn't let the students show their personality or express themselfs

Amanda has spent the last two years at Palomares. The school is in its fifth year of failure and staff changes have been significant. I believe it severely impacts the students. My daughter did great under Dr. Storm. This year under Mr. Brown not so much. Her attitude with accepting change i.e., new principal - new rules - and she is a teenager - contributed greatly to the problems I encountered this year. Cudos to the staff that give above and beyond the call of duty. My daughter is very challenging and administrative staff and teachers continued to reach out and engage her in helping her to achieve scholastic goals as well as teach her to become accountable for her negative behavior. Vice-principal, Mrs. Ferguson is caring and committed and determined to ensure that all students at Palomare succeed. Thank you Palomares staff for your your love and dedication! Lori Smith

As a recent student at Palomares I feel that the school isn't that well off. I certainly wouldnt send my child here. I think that the way that school runs things is totally off. From my personal experience.
