    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.
