    "The strength of this school are the principal, Tracy Garcia, and the vice principal, Peggy Zapatta. These ladies are the first to arrive at school in the morning, and the last to leave at night. They care about Paloma, and it shows. To see the dedication these 2 women have to this school, you need to go no further than the end of the day when kids are being picked up to go home. They know everyone of the kids at their school, they say good night to almost every child that passes by, and do it by name. They deal with parents that cannot follow the parking lot rules with a smile, and participate in after school activities. Mrs Orozko, a third grade teacher, is also a hit in my book. I have not seen many teachers as organized and dedicated to her class as she is. She is always ready to speak about your child, quick to have the info she needs to have a discussion, and manages to put out a progress report every week. Everyone at this school, right down to Marvin the custodian, is dedicated to making Paloma a positive place for kids to learn and grow."

    "Paloma is a wonderful encouraging environment. I have enjoyed my time as parent and are always surprised at how supportive the teachers and administration towards students. Their ability to provide extra services, from peer tutoring to afterschool help is amazing. They truly want your child to succeed."

    "Paloma is a great school and my child has been challenged and motivated. He's loved all of his teachers and from what I understand, the private school curriculum is not much different. I look forward to this school year and what the school has to offer."

    "So far we love Paloma Elementary. Mrs. Reyes was an amazing 1st grade teacher for our child. She puts in 110%. We can only hope to have as good as teachers for our two children attending this year!"

    "Paloma is a great school with many great teachers (Ogden, Navarre, Salisbury, Craker, Lewis, Feinberg) and many more. Paloma has a new principal who is AWESOME! She is dedicated to each child and listens to all of your concerns and responds immediately. Tracy Garcia is making a big difference in these childrens lives. Paloma is a caring and nurturing school and academically has a great reputation. The PTO works very hard to make sure these students have many great programs that the district doesn't fund. The parent involvement is not the best, but the parents who do help out with all the fundraisers work very hard. Great School!"
