It's sad to see what Palo Verde has turned out to be. It was such a great school in the past and now not only are locker doors just hanging all broken, but they can't even keep the teachers, one of my son's still doesn't have a math teacher and it's already the beginning of the second quarter. My other ...  Read more

Palo Verde is one of the best schools that I have been to in a long time. A vast majority of teachers are extreamly dedicated to their students safety, well-being and education. Homework being lost is unheard of. (It's only been 'stolen' by the boogyman at Fry's.) PV's extracurricular activities are ...  Read more

My child will not be attending next year. I found the teachers detached and disinterested. My daughter's homework was lost by more that one teacher on more than one occasion. Homework credit was given to some and not to others for identical work handed in at the same time. When I sent a note asking ...  Read more

I would love to know what planet is tucson living on. The administration just turn their heads like there is a problem with the children. Not dealing with the entire problem. We have only been living here for one year and I must say things need to change in tucson and at Palo Verde.

Palo Verde is a very great school for students looking to get a excellent education before entering college. Palo Verde has tremendous extracurricular activities. PV won this year's first 2005 State 4A Division Championship since 1972. PV also has a fantastic musical program for students including choir, ...  Read more
