    The school climate is safe and industrious. My child and I have had a positive experience with the staff. I wish there were more partnership with the local pool and parents. GREAT partnership with Olivewood Gardens.

    My daughter and I love Las Palmas Elementary School. I love the communication and help that not only the principal gives but the teachers as well. I love the fact that is gated and the only way to get in is through the office. I would not want my daughter to go to any other school. Thank you to every staff member at Las Palmas School.
