THIS SCHOOL IS SO STRICT OVER EVERYTHING.!!!!!!!! They expect us not to wear a jacket that has a picture or designs. D: also why they tell us we can't wear our p.e shirt as a school uniform they tell us you only wear your p.e shirt when you have p.e. IT SAYS PALM GLADES!!!!!! are you serious??
I am a teacher at PGA and I am stunned by some of the reviews below. PGA has an extremely committed family of teachers that dedicate long hours and elite professionalism to the students. Our principal is over the top committed to his teachers, staff, students and parents. Our new Assistant Principal is top notch and extremely supportive of students and faculty. PGA will continue to grow and excel and it will hit bumps in the road, it's the nature of education. I would suggest those posting negative comments from last year were more of the problem than being interested in helping find a solution.
I have read the other reviews and it is quite disheartening to read some of them. This is a forum to voice our opinions and mine differs greatly. With that being said I find that there has been a vast improvement in the atmsophere in the school. I noticed it in the drop off and pick up times and by the comments my daughters make. Many of the troublemaker students have not returned and it shows. Yes, adminstration has changed but change is not a bad thing. This new adminstration has the luxury of coming into an infastructure that is in place and now is the time to tweak and perfect it. Parents and students alike need to know the rules of the school and be cognisant of them. Schedules are mostly finalized, after school teams and clubs are underway. Atheltics department has both boys and girls teams active. I think that this year will be great! The first school activity, coordinated by the principal was a great sucess with 200 paticipants. I would not have my daughters at this school if I thought it was not safe or that the education was subparr. I am a very involved parent and my children excel in their subjects. Both parents and students need to be engaged in order to suceed.
As an active student in Palm Glades Preparatory Academy I can honestly say that this school doesn't only offer an amazing chance to improve academically but also to become richer socially . Go Eaglessss!
Palm glades Prep has only been in existence for one year. As of now this school is HORRIBLE!!! The administration is the worst I have ever seen! I hope the new Principle will do a better job. Some of the students don't care to learn and some of the teachers don't care to teach! My child will not be returning to this school! If you care about your child's education and want them to compete in the job market. Don't send them to Palm Glades
If there were negative stars I would select it. The school is terrible. My son's teachers take them outside to play and show them movies that have nothing to do with educational subjects. Even the teachers remove their children from the school knowing how bad the school is. There are many negative students and situations that occur at this school. The original administration walked out on the school days apart never a good sign for a school. The new administration looks to be way worse. I don't know who owns this school but they seem to have no clue how to run a good school. I would never let my son return to this school. This school is a joke and should be closed after one year of existence.
