    "We are returning parents and are tremendously eager to help our girls achieve the best they can in school. I know this can happen as long as the school remains under the care of Mr. Abrams who shows true dedication to the school, the students and the parents. And not just a body or a number as was the case at previous school. As long as Palms leader remains solid in having high educational standards and not settle for mediocre then this school will succeed. Palms needs financial support from all areas. Music, Art, Academic Boot Camps"

    "Hello I am a parent of a 2nd grader and Kinder. other parents should know that Palms elementary has a nurse on duty only one day a week, Mondays. Kids at Palms E. are very friendly. This school will only improve of teachers are sent for seminars or by making this school a charter school. Mrs Macgovern is excellent teacher. Mrs Alston needs to go to seminars. This School needs a field for Physical Education and sports."

    "We reluctantly started Palms El. this year in Kinder...and could not be more blessed! So far, so great. Mr. Spencer is a wonderful teacher and the principal, Mr. Abrahams, is working so hard to keep the school on an upward path! I agree with the parent that said 'don't let the ratings on this website fool you.' I have personally come across some whacky ratings of schools, good and bad, that simply have me shaking my head as to How on Earth that rating was given. Having knowledge of some of the schools this website rates, its difficult to continue to trust the GS ratings system. I do look to the website's Parent Reviews and am so happy that most of the Palms reviews are positive as I believe we are here to stay. So many great things [from administrators] about Palms Middle School! "You'd be lucky to get in" they say. Palms El. is on its way to that stature as well. And those of you concerned about the "English Learners" in the school, wow. Do you realize what city you're in? Get over it - and used it - and stay involved with your kids' education. Don't sleep on Palms El...or better yet, leave! Smaller classes left for my child! No, really, its been great so far!! Give it a chance!"

    "Palms Elementary School is for the parent and student who want to be successful. The principal at the school not only does his principal duties, but he also makes time to assist the parents needs to make the students successful. I am a single mother with many needs, my son has been at Palms Elementary since kindergarden (it's been 3yrs now). I wouldn't change him now if he was excepted into Harvard. I have a since of SAFETY while my child is attending school. The staff has always been very helpful and friendly. I am proud to be a Parent at Palms Elementary School."

    "My daughter is currently attending this school, we moved to LA Last Feb 2011 she entered 2nd grade with amazing transition, as she came from a charter school from another city. This is our second year at Palms and i have to say that they have the most amazing teachers and school leadership. I am very happy with my daughter's grades, academic awards and test scores. I would strongly recommend Palms Elementary to all parents! When i first read the reviews here before she entered the Los Angeles District, i was bummed out at the ratings because of the API score.. etc.. I tried enrolling her at Castle Heights but we were not in their district... however.. we are very fortunate to be at Palms, as she is progressing and getting advanced academic education. Palms is definitely under-rated on this website! A lot of smart students graduating from this school, I have talked to many other parents and I am glad that my daughter is one of the students of Palms! :) Great School! Don't let the ratings on this website fool you! :)"
