As a parent of three boys (now) 23yrs old; 19yrs. old and 8yrs. old. All have attended or are attending Palm Lakes Elelmentary, I congradulate the Principal, Mrs Iglesias, for doing a good job. Alot of the teachers my 23 year old son had when he attended school are still there today. That says alot about her and her staff; they must be doing something right ! While that being said, I would like more focus on actual learning and less focus on passing the FCAT. But. that is true in most , if not many, of our schools today!!
I FIND THE TEACHERS ARE VERY ROBOTIC AND NON-CARING FOR THE CHILDREN. SCHOOL SHOULD BE A PLACE FOR LEARNING AND FUN NOT A PLACE OF TORMENT AND STRESS.
Good in the sense that teachers really care for the students and the principal is really very efficient.No violence heard about its premises within the past few years
My son attends this school. I am very pleased with the principal. She is very involved, dedicated, and great with parents and kids. On the other hand, the teachers don't seem to care much and don't offer much help to struggling students. I would say this is a good school as long as your kids don't have any learning issues. I would not recommend it for the struggler student.
Palm Lakes Elementary is a wonderful school. It truly is 'The best school in the universe.' The instructional staff is the best, bar none. They are dedicated, caring, concerned and go above and beyond the call of duty to make learning exciting. It is no wonder they have been an 'A' school for so many years. My children had the privilege of attending and my only hope is that they will have the same quality of education in middle and high school.
This is my daughters fourth year in Palm Lakes and she is doing wonderful...the school is an A+ school ,the teachers are very dedicated..the pricipal is very sensitive with kids and they have a lot of activities like Field Day, the science fair and the most succesful the multicultural fair.I recomend this school and they have after school clubs
I don t recomend this school, the staff don t care students problem and the teachers always have te reasons. Many parents have had problems through the courses and the staff don t care and are unfair about parents problems. The student s self reliance decrease in this school.
This is our daughters 2nd year at Palm Lakes. She has had wonderful and dedicated teachers. Our child loves her school and looks forward to going there everyday. The school is constantly working to improve its facilities and programs as well. They made the 'A' again this past school year!
I graded the principal leadership as a 3 because the principal is wonderful but the AP is horrible. She is rude and brings the school down. I would give the principal a 5 and the AP a 1. The teachers are good. The school website is helpul and im satisfied with the technology in the school. Not a lot of extra activities.
The staff is not willing to cooperate. The teachers don't care about the student's future goals.I do not recommend this school.
Palm Lakes is a great school. My daughter has learned a second language due to the strong efforts of her teachers and the staff. She will be entering 5th grade with a strong background in all areas of study.
My son has been in this school since he was in kindergarten. Now he is in 5th grade. When he came home with his last report card he had 4 F's. He had been on the principal's list and received awards. This year he got a new first year teacher and it seems that she can't handle 5th grade. My son couldn't compete his work because there was no time.
