The new principal is very unprofessional. Rude to kids like he does not care about them o maybe he thinks kids are not going to say it to their parents. We miss already the former principal. Mr. Alvarez, he was very respectful to kids and parents as well. It looks like Mr. Santiago has not enough experience for this job. Very sad because this is an awesome school with great teachers and great staff. And being Mr. Santiago the principal should be the first one setting the example.

This school offers just the basic education--and that they don't do very well. The guidance counselor is inept and the teachers fail as far as I am concerned. Sadly, my children are getting a sub standard education with no extracurricular activities or recess.

Palmetto is only a few years old, and for being a new school it's teachers are top notch. Mr. Alvaraz Principal of the school brings great deal of knowledge, and structure to the school. The school is growing and becoming stronger each year. I am proud that my daughter has the chance to make a difference in this growing school. Three years of success and three more to go. Thank you Palmetto for your excellance, for your dedication, and your hard work! Our little Knights do "Charge towards a future of excellance"! Proud Parent's The Knope Family
