Kids are changed from their homeroom class when you least expect it. It happens weeks after school begins. Lots of political talk by administration which is never backed up with actions. Very disorganized.

I was a student in this school since kinder and that school is really good it helps you a lot, the teachers are grate and it's also an A+ school. I have let's so many things their and to be honest I wanna go back cause palm lakes gave me the best 5 years of school a kid could ever get. The classes are clean, the teachers are really nice and helpful, the food is good and healthy, the principle cares a lot about the student and so dose the v-principa, the staff helps a lot, the field trips are fun safe and educational and sometimes they let them have fun days like pajama day, dress down day, field day, and lots more. And at the end in 5th grade, the do a supper fun graduation where they give kids their diplomas and let them dance and eat until they go home and they do it in the best banquet hall they can find. It's a really grate fun educational school and if you put your kid in PalmLakes, trust me you won't regret it.

As a parent of three boys (now) 23yrs old; 19yrs. old and 8yrs. old. All have attended or are attending Palm Lakes Elelmentary, I congradulate the Principal, Mrs Iglesias, for doing a good job. Alot of the teachers my 23 year old son had when he attended school are still there today. That says alot about her and her staff; they must be doing something right ! While that being said, I would like more focus on actual learning and less focus on passing the FCAT. But. that is true in most , if not many, of our schools today!!

I FIND THE TEACHERS ARE VERY ROBOTIC AND NON-CARING FOR THE CHILDREN. SCHOOL SHOULD BE A PLACE FOR LEARNING AND FUN NOT A PLACE OF TORMENT AND STRESS.

My son attends this school. I am very pleased with the principal. She is very involved, dedicated, and great with parents and kids. On the other hand, the teachers don't seem to care much and don't offer much help to struggling students. I would say this is a good school as long as your kids don't have any learning issues. I would not recommend it for the struggler student.

Palm Lakes Elementary is a wonderful school. It truly is 'The best school in the universe.' The instructional staff is the best, bar none. They are dedicated, caring, concerned and go above and beyond the call of duty to make learning exciting. It is no wonder they have been an 'A' school for so many years. My children had the privilege of attending and my only hope is that they will have the same quality of education in middle and high school.

I don t recomend this school, the staff don t care students problem and the teachers always have te reasons. Many parents have had problems through the courses and the staff don t care and are unfair about parents problems. The student s self reliance decrease in this school.

I graded the principal leadership as a 3 because the principal is wonderful but the AP is horrible. She is rude and brings the school down. I would give the principal a 5 and the AP a 1. The teachers are good. The school website is helpul and im satisfied with the technology in the school. Not a lot of extra activities.
