I have not yet had positive experience with this school. I find that my daughter's teacher says inappropriate things such as telling them they sound stupid. When I complained to admin the teacher changed the word to uneducated. Also, don't bother buying name brand school supplies because most likely they will be given to another child. At the beginning of the year they took all of the school supplies from each child and then redistributed them as they saw fit. I sent my daughter to school with Mead 5 Star plastic folders and she was not allowed to use them. She was given a 10 paper folder instead which broke just a few weeks later, and now I'm finding myself having to spend more money on supplies.

I have serious concerns in regards to the integrity of an administrator and a first grade teacher at this school. On several occassions I observed the first grade teacher treating students with disdain as well as openly talking negative about students and other staff. I don't care how much "stuff" she has in her room, treating every child with dignity and respect is most important.

Palm Bay Elementary is an exemplary school. The environment is warm and caring, yet the expectations for academics and good behavior are very high. I feel confident that when I send my child to school each day, he is being well cared for. Mrs. Migliore and her staff support the children and the parents. This is the first time that I have felt welcome when I enter the building. Thank you so much for everything that you do for kids.

My son is going into his second year at Palm Bay, and I absolutely love the school. I especially love the availability of the music program, along with the art, sports and other activities. The staff there all really love the children, and really seem to love their jobs. Thank you Palm Bay Elementary for being a huge supporter in my son's education.
