    My daughter has been enrolled at Palm River Elementary school for going on her third year. The teachers are friendly enough and I like that they are uniform mandatory. But last year my daughter had a bully in her class and I feel like her teacher could have done more to help keep my daughter safe and comfortable in the classroom. No child should be scared to go to school.

    4 stars Palm River faculty and administration are committed to doing the best for our students. I've never been a part of a school so personally involved in providing a nurturing atmosphere that expects high standards of students and is constantly involved in professional development.

    I am not very pleased with Palm River Elementary as I think the parents should be allowed to be a part of their child's education and feel welcomed in their child's school.

    Palm River Elementary is an overpopulated school. The student to teacher ratio is too high and they could use some intervention on their behalf. Children tend to slip through the cracks too easily due to this fact. Sad but true.
