    The teacher support provided to its students is quite excellent in helping to acheive academic excellence. Administration and supervision is always seen around campus in provding protection and discipline if needed. Parent involvement appears to be average to above average. Unfortunately I gave the school 4 of 5 stars because for the last three years I've attempted to have my son enrolled in their afterschool program ISIS . We were supposed to be given priority since he was on their waiting list; not the case. The school offers limited additional support to working parents if they don't get in to ISIS. I Believe YMCA is available but off campus and for a fee.

    Palm School is excellent. They have a very wonderful staff. A great principal who is on top of things. And will take the time to meet with you & resolve any issues you have. The teachers are just as wonderful and get involoved with parents to help out the students. There are extracurricular activities depending on what grade you are in such as Cross Country Mexican Ballet Folklorico Dancing Music and Choir. Communication between the teachers parents and principal plays a very important factor here at this school.

    The quility of the education offered by Palm School is excellent. There seems to be a personal want by the teachers to offer the best to the stundents.From my experince of this school there no extra exracurricular activeties. Except one which is mexican dancing offered through the year. Which my daughter has joined and loves. Parent involement is at a high level as always.
