    "My children attend this school. I just want to say first off that I have only met one person from the whole office staff that is actually nice and seems to care a lot about each and every child that comes into the office. While enrolling, she was VERY helpful explaining paperwork, etc. I enjoy talking with her every time I come into the school. The dark haired lady, Valerie, I believe her name is has always been rude and seems to have a "I'm better than you" personality. The teachers are hit or miss. There are a few great ones and there are a few that are not so great. Seems like they are just there for the money and nothing else. In my opinion, a kindergarten teacher should have patience with children. Especially when it comes to those with special needs or other issues. Instead a certain teacher has no problem singling out a child to "MAKE AN EXAMPLE" of him even though he has problems. I would change schools in a heartbeat if it weren't for the fact that we only have one vehicle that my husband and I share. I would definitely find out some background on the teachers before enrolling you child. Funny thing is, Palm Vista is supposed to be the "best" in 29 Palms--GOOD LUCK!"

    "My daughter just started kindergarten this year and is already always exited to get back to school each day! Her teacher seems to be doing a great job and my daughter is learning a lot and having fun at the same time."

    "This school was once a good school . The Principal is horrible with the kids and will be retiring next year. I will be home schooling my child this year because of our experiences at that school. I hope they get a good Principal in there after that one leaves."

    "Despite some of the bias in the reviews here, this school is right on par with all the other schools in the area. The principal's credentials are a bit suspect (she's a Phoenix) and that unfortunately manifests in the way she handles complex situations. There are plenty of excuses to go around, too. The reason your straight-A, well-kept student will be harassed and demoralized in this school is because of "demographics." The mentality...this is a low-income area, thus the children should be allowed to misbehave. Little unsupervised 'thugs' are allowed to do as they please."

    "Mr. Crites was wonderful and test scores were declining. Dr. Cindy McVay is outstanding and truly believes in each student and a is helping Palm Vista to become all we can (total staff). Change is good and we are becoming a community school and welcome her back for the second year. Palm Vista is in a better place with Dr. McVay as our principal. Teachers are not showing anger they are feeling growth and improvement. Palm Vista is a warm learning environment and I am a proud grandparent that my grandkids go here."
