Open Quote I love Palmer Elementary School. I choiced my daughter into this school four years ago, and I couldn’t be more pleased. The school is one-to-one with technology, and these days being fluent with technology is vital to success. The class sizes are small. The teachers are caring and responsive. Also, Palmer offers a personalized education. They flexibly group students so that every student receives what they need to be successful. My daughter is identified G.T., and the teachers at Palmer continually find creative ways to challenge her. I would definitely recommend this school to other parents. Close Quote

Open Quote We have choiced into Palmer for the past two years. This school is a small, neighborhood school that has a old fashioned feeling. Student work fills the halls, the teachers all recognize each student, and they are friendly and accessible. My daughter entered well advanced compared to many of her classmates and has been adequately challenged throughout the year. She is learning a lot and loves school. I plan to continue to send my kids here and would highly reccommend Palmer to anyone with elementary-aged kids. Close Quote

Open Quote It's unfortunate - just drive by the school sometime during recess, and you'll immediately see why even though it's less than two blocks away from my house...I would NEVER, EVER send my children there. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
