Palma Sola is an excellent school that has wonderful teachers and encourages family values. My daughter has attended since kindergarten and is currently in the 4th grade . The staff is friendly and always helpful. Palma Sola always has activities or projects going on that incorporates teachers, children and their parents or grandparents. I couldn't be happier with this school.

My son is going on his 4th year here he is behind and the principle wants to say its because he is ADD when in fact we have been to his pediatrician and they do not think he is. Instead of blaming ther self they blame it on the child.

My child just started Kindergarten here after going to a private school for the past 2 years. He has a wonderful teacher and I feel that he is learning what all children are learning at this age. Of course he learned all of this a few years back in the private school but since our personal situation has changed, my children are attending public schools and this was a second best option for us. I see my child during lunch period and get to see a little of what is going on in their day. I would say that if you can visit your child during their lunch hour please do.

Our family loves the school and the staff is very loving - great with all children. The school is open to nature and not closed in like other school's great learning environment. She can not wait to get her personal laptop. Parents are very involved and the school hosts tons of family involvements and events. We are so glad to be part of the Palma Sola Family!!!

The principle is condescending at best. She is against parent interaction and when you talk to her she puts her hands all over you treating you like a child. Technology is lacking in the school for there is no computers for specials and only 2 computers in the classroom. Some of the teachers are WONDERFUL however I also saw the flip side. I finally pulled my children out of there and choiced them into a much better school...

Palma Sola is the kind of school you would want your kids to go to. I'm a graduate and my kids are attending now... Still searching for more school comparing sites to look at what other elementary schools are doing. I've had lunch with my child many times and the lunches are not silent.

Palma Sola is a fabulous school. Our new principal is young, energetic and is totally focused on the education of our children. Our teachers are very caring and work as a team to provide a fabulous educational experience for our children.

My son was lacking in so many aspects when we moved to Palma Sola. I believe the teacher was his saving grace, he became a much better reader in just a couple of weeks. The school itself is improving by enhancing the security level. When we first moved their anyone could go on campus and take a child going to the potty, now they have a buddy system no child is ever alone. I believe the new principle has really done an awesome job considering she had to step in at a time of change and with the degree of press and misunderstanding by the parents, I applaud her. The activities have been wonderful for the children and the adults, thanks to the PTA. Parent evolvement was encouraged from the time I put my child in Palma Sola. It is a wonderful school.

After six years at Palma Sola and our third principal I am not impressed. The new administration has banned parents from walking their children to class, parking on the property. The school used to be wonderful and our teachers still are however if you want to be part of your child's education I would advise you Stay Away!
