    "This school is a great place. They might have a little bumps, but every school has that. I think that you get a great education, and it has changed from years ago, when all it had was violence. There is one girl, who is in special needs and I have the opportunity to hang out with her and another friend. I'm glad that they allow us to have the opportunity to dress down if we are good enough, and I think it's because we deserve it. I think we don't have to dress to show our style, it's how we show it with our personality. I think that all of our different personalities make it unique, and clothes, they're what we wear, not what expresses us. We are also given the opportunity, if we have a high enough grade, to either gett a bronze, silver, or gold card, which allows us to have access to the front of the lunch line, and free access to home games, which also is what is deserved. Honestly, this school has helped us, it made my brother's grade go higher, it has helped me strive to reach for higher grades, and try my best."

    "This is a great school no matter what rumors you hear. Like they say you should never believe everything that's said, it may not all be true."

    "My daughter attended Palo Verde Middle School for the past two years and graduated today. She is a special needs student and we would like other parents to know what a great experience she had at this school. She was always treated with the utmost respect and was readily accepted by the other students. She was challenged by her school assignments and academically surpassed many expectations. This time in a childs life can be hard due to peer acceptance and we found that Palo Verde made the experience one of the best our daughter has had in school. The staff made us feel welcome from day one and her conferences involved everyone that made up her team. We always felt that they had an open door policy and would address any questions we had. As parents we were nervous about the change to middle school and because of our experience at Palo Verde ,we look forward to high school !"

    "Palo Verde is definitely not the best school but it's decent. Some of the teachers are funny but it's a bit too strict and I really think that people would like the school better if you could wear you're own clothes. It's way better not having to buy a bunch of t-shirts so you won't run out of uniform shirts to wear. And I think wearing your own clothes is kind of way to express you and your personality so people can kind of see you and your style. It's a waste of money to buy those uniform shirts. And I would say that the school is not that good with being nice to each other. As a student, I can see how students treat other students and it's really not that great. Parents, as much as they say, don't know how students treat each other because they don't go to school there so they don't really know. All in all I would say Palo Verde isn't the best. I would totally go to a different school if I could right now."

    "being a eighth grader at this school really sucks, coming from a middle school that had lockers, and a lot of responsibilty for yourself, palo verde is like a elementary school. the teachers are always telling us that we are almost high schoolers, but we still have to line up outside of classrooms, we still have to walk in lines to lunch, we still have to mimic the teachers clap rhythm. we have a sheet that keeps track of your behavior & if you get a certain amount of good behaviors, the. you get a dress down. the only good thing about this school is that all the students have each other backs, on my first day at this school ( I started late) I was so confused, so I asked the teacher she looks at me like I wasn't speaking English. for my first week a student helped me get the hang of things, without being told. keep your child away from palo verde . the campus is too large to be a middle school and there are way too many kids."
