    "Have had a problem with bullying at Palmer. My child has gone to the principal and was told he would take care if it. The same bully took my son's sandwich and threw it on the floor. Nothing has happen to this child except the principal told the boy to stay away from my child. That is hard to do because the child is in the same class as mine. Seems as though the principal like to pass on the problems to others (secretaries and/teachers). I am so glad that my child will be going to another school next year!!!!! Very disappointed in the administration."

    "Students are bussed up from the downtown area into this school and other schools in Newport News. Just because your school is in a great area, doesn't mean the quality of the students match. The teachers are great for the most part, but the new administration is lacking. The principal would rather skirt around the problems, then fix them."

    "I am so pleased with the staff and administration at Palmer Elementary. Class sizes were out of hand at the beginning of the school year. What did they do? Add new teachers to reduce the class sizes. Mr. Black and Mrs. Francis (Principal and Assistant Principal) really care for not just the education of the students, but their well-being. They are in the process of rebuilding the PTA, so hopefully more parents will take an interest and help out. I was a bit concerned reading previous comments posted here, but am so glad that I made the decision to enroll my children at Palmer."

    "Ms. Brown, new principal, has taken an active approach at trying to improve the school. My son moved from Kiln Creek Elem to Palmer for the Talented and Gifted program. I was concerned because of the ratings and reviews, but Palmer did well for my son. They had quarterly award ceremonies and monthly parent involvement meetings. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of parent involvement, but the school is working in the right direction."

    "Second yr now that the SOL scores were way down,took four months on a child study request,principle seems to have an attitude,class change made big difference in academics,poor communication from first 4th grade teacher and principal. Michele in the office is the only good thing there at Palmer.Child complains that the food is cold at lunch. My child will not be going there next yr."
