    "I felt compelled to respond to the last reviewer. There are some things I don t think some parents understand. In our state there is zero money for the schools. Schools fundraise so that the students can have those wonderful extra programs and activities such as art programs and dances. At Paloma we have a group proactive parents who work hard to keep these programs and run the activities. It wouldn't be a small group of people doing so if more parents were involved and helped. I am new to the school and have always found everyone to be warm, friendly and welcoming. I love my Child s teacher and I think the principal really cares for the students. I think more parents need to be proactive in their children s education and if you don t like something then join the PTA and/or go to meetings. Make your voice heard. It easy to do nothing and complain. Overall, my child is very happy at Paloma and I think it is a positive learning environment with wonderful teachers."

    "Laser beam focus on test scores. If your student is at grade level they will get very little attention because all they care about is bringing up the lower students. Sadly the best teachers left in the most recent round of layoffs. Principal came about 4 yrs ago and one by one took away all the enriching programs and activities to focus more on testing. A lot of fundraising which happens all the time and is run by a small group of women who can be clique-y. The new "Sixth Grade Academy" is concerning because those students might be very behind when they get to middle school. The information being taught there does not seem to be at the same level of what students get at the regular middle school. Also if you have an advanced student they will not get pre-algebra in 6th grade like they will at the middle school, which sets them off to be behind by a year for math and science in high school because they will be missing pre-reqs. Overall feeling of school is very closed off and unfriendly. Staff morale seems low."

    "This is an updated review from a previous one I made in 2011. I wanted to make another review because since the incident that took place in 2011, my daughter has done very well and she loves her new teacher and Paloma. Unfortunately, because of that incident I don't spend much time at the school- I honestly don't like running into the principal or the teacher. However, this is something I have to deal with and does not reflect the performance of the school or the majority of it's staff. I'm happy that my daughter is happy and that's all I care about."

    "Paloma Elementary not only earned the prestigious title of "California Distinguished School" last year, but they also piloted the brand new 6th grade Academy this year. They are a school that never rests on its laurels and I appreciate the willingness to always go above and beyond. I give them an enthusiastic thumbs-up and a score of 5 stars!"

    "Love this school just worried about the over crowding. More children will make it harder for the teacher to give any one on one. So you better be ready to work with your children after school. So they don't forget what they have learned for the day. Teachers are great and staff too! If you have the time Volunteer. Also funds are low so we as parents need to buy supplies for the school."
