This school is very good with the Kindergarten level kids. It has been a great year for my daughter and even though we are moving away. I am sad to leave the school because even the principal knew my daughers name.

My daughter came to Palo Verde knowing practically no English and within 1 year she reached the top of the class. The principal and his staff were very helpful, considerate and encouraging. The PTA was also awesome. In short, greatly recommended!

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
