Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
My daughter was not only assaulted, but a victim of bullying. The issue was never addressed. She is penalized whenever something is brought up. Don't ask questions because they refuse to have a conversation.

Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
If they like you get to learn. If they don't, well good luck...


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
My daughters Spanish teacher lied about not receiving emails from an AVID teacher regarding needing extra help. I also spoke with the AVID teacher and he sent it twice. She lied about being open to assisting her. Since counselor Mr. Johnson put her in Spanish 3-4 when she never passed Spanish 1 because based on her name he thought she spoke Spanish. English is the only language we speak at home....

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
There is a huge disconnect between grading and parent connect, where they enter grades and assignments

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
Lack of supervision and accountability for leadership. Tenure over actions. People should be judged by their actions ands ability to do the job not just stay at the job long enough to gain seniority or tenure.


Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
They have made disciplinary decisions with no supporting information based on no fact and assumption. She was profiled and discriminated against. Grossly mishandled several situations.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
My daughter was put in Spanish 3-4 and never complete Spanish one 2 because of her Hispanic last name they assumed she spoke Spanish. Her teacher was dishonest about receiving emails from another teacher regarding test retakes and tutoring.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree

My child was assaulted during class with 2 teachers in the class. No one who should have been paying attention. It was not reported by any one of authority. My daughter was suspended when she reported the incident.

This school is great when considering everything from education, teachers, students, environment, and everything before, after, and in between. The staff is quite pleasant, the teachers are simply great at what they do, the programs are the best they could possibly be (positively challenging!), the students are friendly and kind, and the school security are always on top of things.

I have had 2 children recently graduate from the Palmer IB, Diploma Program. We chose Palmer not only for the IB program, but also for its wide variety in activities and the diversity of the student body, both economic and cultural. They both did well, and found activities and clubs that fit their interests and personalities. The rigor of the program and the community involvement greatly helped both of them with being admitted to the colleges they chose and receiving scholarships. The teachers were supportive and willing to take time out of their schedules to help students when needed. The only acception to this was the art department. It was chaotic and disorganized. Little to no actual art instruction was offered. Students were just told to explore different art mediums and create whatever they wanted. No guidance, no instruction, no improvement to the students' skills at all. That aspect was frustrating, but aside from the art department, Palmer was a good school experience for our family.
