    "Rarely are there elementary schools that the amount of arts and music that Palmetto Elementary offers its students. From chorus, drama, band, orchestra, glee club, cheerleading, jazz band and other groups, this school has been blessed with years of strong support from its parents and the teachers. The school has a non-profit to support these programs and also another to support providing assistants in classrooms. There is a strong push to have the students read and it uses the Advanced Reading method. Most of the students really get excited when they read their goals and go Over the Rainbow. The school is much smaller than the other school in the area which we like and the PTA is very active. The principal has taken steps to take some of his best teachers out of the gifted program and put them instead in the general classes to help those students improve. That is a bold move that many principals would not do, but I believe it shows he wants to focus on all students. I think this is a gem and we are very happy that our children go there and feel happy and active there."

    "I just withdrew my son from this school. along with 2 more kids in his class. Palmetto is great if you get the "right" teacher. We unfortunately did not. we left to another school after being in Palmetto for 2 yrs it was sad to leave but we had to. it was getting to stressful. The teachers we had for 1 and 2nd grade were not good teachers and the next teacher didn't care to teach so we left and 2 kids followed suit. no one listened to us teacher, principal no one. Good luck to all of you."
