    "My child goes to this school for the 2nd year now. First year he got all A's but his FCAT scores were low. This year he struggled with Math as Kaplan is his teacher. He is very aloof and a hard-nose and generally do not seem to care as he is one of the teachers that can't be touched. The administrators this year seemed indifferent and I noticed a remarkable drop in morale among the teachers. The counselors are useless. Their beloved band teacher left and the music program is suffering under a very incompetent green teacher that they got at the end of September. All in all its a subpar school UNLESS your child is in the gifted program. The school has many bussed in kids and it changes the climate of the neighborhood. If you can't get your kid into Ammons or Southwood then I guess you better get them in the gifted program here otherwise might as well be homeschooled through Virtual which many kids are doing. If you want a mediocre school for your child and hopefully find him an amazing highschool afterwards then yes to this school, otherwise no."

    "I am a student at Palmetto Middle (8th grade boy). It's pretty much just an ordinary middle school. The cons- Language arts teachers are not fun at all and just want to be prepared for FCAT. Also the security guards are not very good, in the PE locker rooms kids fight all the time and the security guards don't even care. The pros- great school. Even if you know the area there are tons of new kids to meet. The science and math teachers are really good. The social studies teachers are different. Depends of who you get. Nice environment. In the morning you have tons of places to meet friends including a garden. Iprep is definitely something to look into. Its fun and you learn. The teachers are great in iprep. Look and try to accept the other reviews. Same as any middle school though. The best way to know about the school is from the students."

    "My child started attending this school this year. Although many rave about it, I don't see what all the fuss is about. The teachers have cliques in their classrooms with kids they like and play favorites to an extreme. The level of educational quality (my child is in gifted) seems very low to me. The cafeteria is a mess and my child does not even want to eat in there due to the noise and smell. There are many kids from outside the neighborhood that are bused in and it alters the environment. A student was arrested so far this year for attacking another student. I have visited the office a few times and met with the counselor and found her to be totally indifferent to my child's needs. She could not be bothered with our minor inquiries. The staff generally to either not care, or if they do care, they are clearly overwhelmed. This could have been a good school if it were smaller and the quality of education were better. I am very disappointed with Palmetto Middle."
