My children have been attending PALS for almost 3yrs and I couldn''t be happier. The school is phenomenal about keeping the parents in the loop DAILY about their education and where the child stands in their academics. I love that I know exactly what my child is doing every day and that''s so important for our family. I feel like my children are ahead of the game when it comes to not just their scholastics but their temperament, behavior, and life skills. I feel like if I have questions or concerns it''s easy to get the answers I''m looking for from their teachers or staff. The school promotes extracurricular activities to the students, and it''s mandatory that they join in at least one. I think this is incredibly important for my children's growth and development- and I''m glad they stand by making it so important.

It's been over a year and I still don't have the 504 plan for my child's medical conditions that I asked for in 2018. I keep getting the runaround. Administration doesn't care about my child's needs at all. The teachers are exceptional, but the principal and assistant principal are the complete opposite.

Staff is unprofessional and unwilling to provide information when asked pertaining to my child. I would not recommend this ''School''. My son is not prepared for his age. Curriculum is ''proprietary'' but ineffective.

I was very excited when my child was able to attend PALS after being placed on a waiting list. However, my excitiement was soon replaced with disappointment and frustration. I will honestly say that I would not recommend that school to even my worst enemy. I have never experienced such negativie and unprofessional conduct by many of the staff and the administration. My child's teacher did not even have a degree in education. Needless to say, I withdrew my child from PAlS before the end of the school year.
