Palo Verde has been the worst choice for a school for my daughter to attend to. There is a constant bullying problem via from staff to students. The teachers and office employees don't strive for better communication with parents on problems regarding their children or bother in finding solutions that benefit either party. As a parent my personal experience at Palo Verde has been horrendous. On multiple accounts the staff has been inconsiderate based on my ethnicity asking my daughter whether if I can speak English even after all the documents I'd had filled in the beginning. The counselor, Mrs.Anderson was extremely unprofessional in handling situations. My suggestion would be to improve on staffing to create a much more efficient environment and personally understanding the parents before judging them. I could go on and on about the inefficiencies but the major problem I encountered was that the staff refused to allow my child to take her AZ Merit testing when she was in trouble. I understand a punishment is mandatory yet depriving her of a test she can't make up for the first account is highly unnecessary. This even had pushed my daughter to not want to go to school. If you love your child I recommend not enlisting your child to Palo Verde until the staff improves professionally.
Great teachers. My kids came home excited about going back. I know they are ready for high school.
The staff is fantastic at this school. I am always greeted with a smile. The teachers are phenomenal and really care about the students. They want to work with parents and the community. I highly recommend Palo Verde!
This school is a great place. They might have a little bumps, but every school has that. I think that you get a great education, and it has changed from years ago, when all it had was violence. There is one girl, who is in special needs and I have the opportunity to hang out with her and another friend. I'm glad that they allow us to have the opportunity to dress down if we are good enough, and I think it's because we deserve it. I think we don't have to dress to show our style, it's how we show it with our personality. I think that all of our different personalities make it unique, and clothes, they're what we wear, not what expresses us. We are also given the opportunity, if we have a high enough grade, to either gett a bronze, silver, or gold card, which allows us to have access to the front of the lunch line, and free access to home games, which also is what is deserved. Honestly, this school has helped us, it made my brother's grade go higher, it has helped me strive to reach for higher grades, and try my best.
