My son says Mr. Lutz changed his life, he was so understanding of his differences and encouraging of his abilities.

Varies dramatically from teacher to teacher but I think they are doing the best with what they have.

There are definitely teachers here that do care and do try, but this school IS NOT suited to help children or parents of children with special needs. Communication is terrible. I was speechless at how awful and rude the principal acted the one time I spoke to her. The shining star in this school is the farm and garden, which a few people put a WHOLE lot of effort into maintaining for these kids and I think it's very special and want them to know it makes a difference. I don't think my son would have made it through this school without it.

My daughter has been enrolled at Palm River Elementary school for going on her third year. The teachers are friendly enough and I like that they are uniform mandatory. But, last year my daughter had a bully in her class and I feel like her teacher could have done more to help keep my daughter safe and comfortable in the classroom. No child should be scared to go to school.

4 stars: Palm River faculty and administration are committed to doing the best for our students. I've never been a part of a school so personally involved in providing a nurturing atmosphere that expects high standards of students, and is constantly involved in professional development.

I am not very pleased with Palm River Elementary as I think the parents should be allowed to be a part of their child's education and feel welcomed in their child's school.

Palm River Elementary is an overpopulated school. The student to teacher ratio is too high and they could use some intervention on their behalf. Children tend to slip through the cracks too easily due to this fact. Sad but true.
