My child attended this school for Pre K, as well as kindergarten, and I can honestly say we had a wonderful experience. We moved out of the zone this summer, but we would have stayed if it was closer. The office staff is amazing, and the teachers all seem to truly care about the children excelling. The school itself was quite clean, and administration had a great handle on everything from my perspective.

This was our first year attending this school. Our kids have excelled! Their teachers have been nothing but amazing. The office staff is super helpful and kind. Palm Terrace is truly a diamond in the rough.

My step daughter went there and she did excellent. my son has been there for four years and is doing well. All his teachers have helped him greatly. I appreciate their effort in helping my son. I stay in touch with them and let me know how he's doing. They have a good structure and a positive atmosphere. I like the dolphin dollars. The kids earn in class and get to spend them in the dolphin dollar store. My son has come home so happy because was able to buy something in the store. I like the staff and I'm glad my son goes there.

My son attended school there for 2.5 yrs and it completely changed his behavior and grades for the worst. The staff was rude and unprofessional. There are a few good teachers that are determined but it is not the norm. I was able to transfer my Son to another school and he has improved so much in the past year. He actually looks forward to going to schoo again. It is astonishing how much that school affected him in such a negative way.

There is now a new principal with a new philosophy at the school. There have always been good elements at the school; my hope is that with new leadership, those elements will be tied together and augmented to make Palm Terrace an A school.

I feel the leadership qualities are lacking at Palm Terrrace Elemantary. My child has attended two years of schooling there, and his problems with fellow students, and lack of guidance has yet to be solved. After many conferences with his current teacher his attitude has not improved from the low that he feels while attending school. Im currently working on relocating my son to another school which can provide him with a better environment and opportunity to succeed.

Yes. I have to say that I was very dissatisfied with the overall experience here. I always had to hold for long periods on the phone, only to get hung up on and they were very rude on the telephone. Well besides that I tried to start my son on an IEP prog. because he has a.d.h.d and sruggles constantly and filled all paperwork out and had several meetings but nothing was started for him. They sure did contact me when he misbehaved though. Very dissapointed with this school. Sorry, but true.Please consider the students problems , don't treat all the same.

i have two children that attend palm terrace and have attended since pre-k and for the most part i am very satisfied with this school. as another parent said we could use more parent involvement to help our children more and to let them know that you are behind them. i am an active member of the PTA and a volunteer around the school even in the summer months when needed. if we could get more parent involvement i believe that our school and the children will soar to higher standards. i appreciate the teachers and the principles for keeping the school together and all of there hard work that they put in each year. keep up the good work and as long as i have as i have elementary school aged children i will be there.

My 6 year old son was in Mrs. Ankiewicz kindergarten class, and I was very pleased with her teaching skills. He learned alot from that class and quite frankly I'm sad (and so is my son and alot of other parents and students from that class) that he has to go to another teacher. However, what does sadden me is that no matter how I hear all of the teachers ask for support from some of the parents they never get it. There are so many things that parents can do to better this schoool. I'm glad we received a 'B' this time, but I'd much rather have seen an 'A'. We, as parents, can't complain about the school if we are never there to help. I've noticed that alot of teachers have to be parents and teachers. And that's not what they get paid for. I think we, as parents, can do a better job of giving assistance than what we do. I know I can do better. We know that Palm Terrace is #1. Let's do our best to make sure everyone else knows it.
