If your child comes from a stable middle to upper middle class family and has average to above average intelligence you will probably be happy.

Generally I think the school is very good. Unfortunately the town is no longer supporting the school with the funding it needs.

This is a very good school. The music teacher is simply awesome, and parent involvement is really encouraged and is a very strong component here. Mr. Anderson will be sorely missed, as he was a real asset here.

The comments made in May of 2004 are a reflection of the now retired principal. The new principal is wonderful. Mr. Anderson treats children, parents, and teachers with respect and this respect has spread throughout the school building. Palmer River is a great school!
