Open Quote This school is like no other school that I have seen in Grundy County. This school ensures the safety of their students, makes no differences in children based on how much income their parents have. This school is there for their students. The teachers and staff ensure that children learn and succeed. When you drop your children off at this school they are treated as if they are the teacher and the staff's children. I would not have my child at any other school other than Palmer Elementary. 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.
