Palisades is an excellent elementary school with devoted teachers and staff. The principal, music teacher and councelor do an outstanding job of bringing all of the extras into the school day and making everybody feel welcome!

We came to the Palisades with hopes for an excellent education for our daughter but more importantly we were looking for a school with a compassionate teaching staff. We found it and then some! From the principal to the janitorial staff, these folks are amazing! Our daughter loves the Palisades and we the Palisades for loving our daughter. Thank you.

I couldn't ask for a better school for my daughter. The staff is always friendly, my child has always loved her teacher, and parent communication is amazing. Wonderful school environment!

I love the child to teach ration. Class sizes are around 21 kids per class. Excellent teachers who are driven to take your child to the next level in their education. High ability learners programs available for those who need it and also special ed. programs.
