The teachers and staff at Palm Avenue Elementary are exceptional and well versed in proper eduation. My children attend this school. They are more than happy with their teachers. Mrs. Mason is an icon to second grade. She should be praised and honored for her dedication to her students. Mrs. Allen is an asset to this school. She has provided a beautiful and interactive envoronment for learning. My children enjoy each of their teachers as well as the programs and extra ciricular activities offered at Palm. Mrs. Wade and Mr. Mendoza are approchable, kind and helpful. I enjoy seeing them outdoors during drop off and pick up. Thank you for your dedication to our children!

Five of our grandchildren have attended Palm Elementary, two have moved onto middle school and high school and are doing very well. Each of the two older ones enjoyed their time at Palm Elementary and have in fact stayed in touch with some of their teachers. Thank you Mrs. Wade, keep up the good work! (My husband and I especially like attending Grandparents Day with our grandkids!)

Palm Avenue school is an exemplary school because the teachers and staff go above and beyond what is expected every day. All children are encouraged to succeed. We have wonderful students and many concerned,involved parents, and a dedicated P.T.A. . The fine arts program is crucial to teaching the whole child. We believe that every child has strengths and interests that need to be developed and nurtured. ALL children deserve the right to express themselves through access to the arts. There is more to education than testing and our school works hard to make sure that students get a well-rounded experience.

I LOVE this school! My daughter attended this school K-6th and the teachers and staff have all been the absolute best! I am so very pleased with this school and couldn't imagine why anyone could ever say anything bad about this school. The new principal is far better than the last principal, he really interacts with all the children, he's the one out there playing all the sports with them. The teachers are all great, they really go that extra mile to help every child. It's no wonder they're numbers are so high. Palm is the top school in my book! Outstanding school!

Palm Avenue is a school dedicated to their students. My son has been there for four years now and has been top of his class with the collaboration of Mom, Dad and his wonderful teachers. He enjoys going to school and loves his teachers. Palm provides a wonder reading program for the kids. Palm promotes parent involvement with their children's in all activities during school and at after school functions. Everything about this school is positive. I am so thankful for all the teachers my son has had on 'C' track from K-3rd grade.

My son has attended Palm for 3 years and it is by far one of the better school's in the district. Their dedication to the arts is admirable and they continue to bring enriching opportunities to the students in these rough economic times. That alone earns my respect.

The school on the surface seems great. However, that is not always the case. School caters to certain students and ignores others. Regulations are not always followed by teaching staff as well as the administration. It is vital to be watchful of one's child and make sure they receive quality education. Some teachers are great others make me worry.

I have a gifted child who attends Palm Avenue, and I'm very pleased with the school. The teachers teach the whole class, and work not only with those who are falling behind, but work to keep those who are ahead challenged and not bored. The programs are outstanding, and the staff as a whole is friendly and helpful.

I have a daughter in second grade here. I love this school. The fine arts programs are fun and the kids enjoy it.The parents are very involved. The principal, Dr. Stimpson, is very fair and very by the book. My child has gotten all the individual attention she needs and is excelling above grade level.

While it is a higher performing school, it also only caters to the higher achieving students. My son has attended this school for three years. He needs extra help and is behind beacause of some learning difficulties. While some extra services are offered, if that doesn't work then nothing more is offered to help the strugglng child. It has been a struggle to get the administration to help him. Many children simply fall through the cracks this way.

Palm avenue is a magnet schoolfor the fine arts and this is an absolutely fantastic aspect. The kids have resident artists, perform, create great art and great music. Unfortunately, it is a school that is hard to get into due to popularity, repuation, the area that it is in and the local population growth.

Palm Avenue Elementary continues to excell in teaching kids the basics and more. My son went there from Kindergarten through 6th grade and my daughter is currently in 3rd grade there. The teachers are very committed to making sure each student is doing their absolute best and all of the teachers (save one) were absolutely awesome in their quest to either provide additional work for my gifted child or to provide extra tutoring and suggestions for my child that needed an extra boost. They continually win education awards for the school and many of the teachers are awarded scholorships for their classrooms for their wonderful efforts.

On the surface this school has all the programs to offer for your youngster, but its the teacher, as every parent knoews that makes or breaks a child succsess. In my opinion this is where palm is lacking. When I saw that palm had so many yerars of teaching experiance I was thrilled untill I reliazed that this just made the teachers set in their ways and unwilling to give students the individual attention that every student deserves.
