    This is a WONDERFUL school! I literally cannot say enough good things about this school. My two sons go here and they are both special needs. It was difficult at first for both of them to start school but the teachers here have made all the difference in the world! Now they both LOVE going and they are both doing excellent. That is so important and I feel at ease knowing they are being well taken care of each and every day while their teachers are doing everything they can to make sure they stay on track academically. My youngest needs certain accommodations but his teacher (Mrs. Meares) makes sure that he gets what he needs. She is absolutely amazing!

    everything is great except for the fact that this school gives detentions to 5K students for tardiness I have checked the other schools and this is the only one that does this. In a child this young they ido not understand what they did wrong. It is the parents resposibility not the child. In one Q & A site one of the parents said that their school held a parent workshop on Saturday for this problem when it occurs.

    If you are looking for the very best education for your child look no further Palmetto Elementary will fulfill your desire. The principal teachers and even the office and cafeteria staff put the children first. Teachers are totally committed to making your child top priority. The principal will go to any means necessary to work out any problem which you will not face but in the event an issue arises he does not fail to use every means necessary to resolve the issue with the rights of the parents first and foremost in the resolution. We have never experienced a problem but another parent with a minor problem spoke with this principal and he put the best interest of the parents and more importantly the child first and the issue was resolved without incident. Leadership and excellent quality education is afforded to every child. Parents are welcomed at any time.

    In one word Great! The teachers go above and beyond to insure student success. The arts and music programs teach preparing students to continue with their talents as they progress through the years. Parental involvement is not only welcomed it is encouraged. Parents are always welcome and their input is welcome too. They even provide a parent idea box in the lobby. They are always striving for improvement in every way. I give this school the highest recommendation possible.
