    "This past year was my son's first year at Palo Verde. And I have to say that I am very excited about him going back next year. I was a little apprehensive based on rumors of years past but never heard or seen anything of the like. He got to know his teachers and almost daily without asking we would get a report about what a teachers said or did. So we know the teachers made an impact on him and he wants to learn. They have an anti-bullying system that is very effective. Anyone who has had problems in the past or currently need to get involved. Just offering to help out in the library, in class rooms, with the PTO or any other event does tremendous things for your kids. Your kids will see that this is important to you and they will ultimately strive to do better to make the school better. This will be my sons last year and my daughter will be here the following. It truly is an awesome school and has excellent teachers and amazing kids. Keep up the outstanding work you all are doing...See you next year!"

    "This school has some of the most talented and intelligent students! The teachers help them to find their way in a very difficult time in their lives. The teachers do a great job in communicating with parents when need arises. The classes are designed to help students at the lowest levels and also meets the needs of those who excel in school. The afterschool activities are numerous and there is something for everyone. I highly recommend this learning community to any family!"

    ".I went to this school and it has changed so very much since I attended. When I enrolled my son the staff was extremely condescending, rude, and disrespectful towards me. My son is scared to go to school most days, because he is not hispanic he is bullied. They do not give us the same paper work they give other students so my son gets failing grades and the teachers doing this refuse to stop doing it. This school is a disgrace to American teaching standards and needs government intervention!"

    "This school is the worst school I have ever dealt with. I do not feel like the administration supports the parents. The priorities are not in the interest of the students. I have had nothing but conflicts on this campus, there is no level of accountability at the staff level, and the staff shifts the blame to everyone but themselves."

    "I regret having my children in this school. The prioroties are backwards and the system is a one size fits all for students, which leaves no room for building a proper connection between staff and students. The envoronment is negative, and the students feed off of this. This gives me a different perspective on public schools."
