    "We enrolled our daughter in Palmer this year and she has done great, she loves the school and her classmates are very caring. I have not received a complain about the teachers and when another kid bully our daughter, it was handled. They have also handled my daughter testing their boundaries. Could not ask for better teachers and better staff. We came from another private school in which our daughter was forced to go backwards and she did not learn a single thing. At Palmer she is constantly challenge and she is in the top of the class."

    "Palmer has been the best place for our children. Their progress has been above and beyond what we had hoped for from a private school. The teachers have met their needs every step of the way. The administration is very involved with the day to day caring for and understanding of the students. We recommend Palmer very highly and are greatful for the success they have brought to our children."

    "Students who do well with traditional structure may be well served at Palmer. But I agree with the reviewers who say that children with learning differences (ADHD et al) do not fit in well here. My various concerns have usually been "answered" but never truly dealt with. As a parent I felt that I had very little real knowledge of how the children (mine in particular) were actually managed. Of concern, during a conversation I had with the school's principal, my son was told he wasn't allowed to contribute to the discussion at all (which was about him). Behavior that might be expected and typical of normal children is over-disciplined. Parents are told NOT to help in the classroom (which is how many parents like to get a feel for how and what their children are doing). Parents are asked to be involved in parties and scouts, etc, but classroom volunteering is not permitted. I would say this is a very rigid environment that caters to typical learners, but not good at all for anyone who may not fit the standard mold, or for families who wish to have a strong handle on what goes on at school. Be aware that they'll tell you differently, but their actions speak more truthfully."

    "Palmer School is a great school. Some of the students say it's horrible, but it really isn't they just haven't been exposed to anything else and do not know how good they have it. The teachers care about you and try to help you as much as they can. If you are looking for a private school for your kids Palmer School should be your choice because it is a good, well-rounded school where you will get the best experience ever!"
