    "The principle is not helpful, teachers are fine but can not handle their classrooms they are too loud and wild. I removed my 2 children from this school far away from it!"

    "I have two boys presently in 1st and 3rd, both having come is as kindergarteners. This school has really shown to continually put it's best foot forward with regard to our children's education and pride in the community. Recently while waiting for my eldest to wrap up a student council meeting I saw, first hand, the staffs reaction to a missing child(ren) situation. Apparently two siblings, just days new to the school, were not where their parents had expected. This began a chain of calculated events that showed this school's dedication and painstaking care and concern for the children. Without hesitation, phone calls were made, parents were consoled, students descriptions were confirmed, the bus driver confirmed the drop off location, teachers and staff were called to attention and within the short time I was waiting in the office the children were located and soon reunited with their waiting parents. Although this is a scenario that we certainly hope never to be repeated, it was just one more testament to Paloma's commitment to the children. Kyrene de la Paloma is an exceptional School"

    "My daughter attended Kyrene de la Paloma from 3rd - 5th grade. I was very pleased with the highly skilled teachers and caring atmosphere of the school. The office staff is friendly and answers questions quickly, and the administrators returned my calls promptly and helped me when I had concerns. My daughter enjoyed the fun projects she did and made lots of good friends. All of her teachers built a relationship with my daughter and challenged her academically. I would highly recommend this school if you are looking for a great school to attend in Kyrene."

    "My daughter went to this school for 2 years. In the beginning I thought the school was great! Needless to say, by the time we ended our second year I had a different opinion. Most of the staff are great, but there is one teacher specifically that should not be teaching anymore and needs to retire. The principal doesn't care if kids are bullied, she will tell you that, "we try to empower our kids to take care of their problems themselves", who the heck says that when a child is being bullied by older kids? We had dealt with the bullying for 4 months and finally went to the principal as a last resort hoping for some help, well nothing was done. I gave this school 3 stars because there are some great teachers there that really care."

    "I have three kids that attend this school. One of them is finishing their 5th grade year and started out as a kindergartner here. I have watched this school take a drastic turn for the worse. Leadership is a complete failure. The principal is very unapproachable. The school is falling apart. So much focus is put on safety but anyone can sign your kid out. My child was picked up by step dad and it was his first time in the office. No ID, no questions asked. Obviously my child was safe but they seriously won't let you walk your own child to the playgro und in the morning out of fear but anyone can walk in and request they pull your child out. Drop off and pick up procedures are chaotic. There is absolutely no organization. Kids are also taught ONLY what's on the AIMS test. This school needs more parents to speak up. So many do talk about these issues but unfortunately, it is not heard by the right people."
