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.

This is our daughters 2nd year at Palm Lakes. She has had wonderful and dedicated teachers. Our child loves her school and looks forward to going there everyday. The school is constantly working to improve its facilities and programs as well. They made the 'A' again this past school year!
