The McLachlan Family: Why We Chose PVS

Whenever I think about Palm Valley School, I instinctively smile. Whenever I drive my car onto Palm Valley School’s amazingly beautiful campus, I feel as if I’ve stumbled upon a special, magical place. Whenever I drop my children off at school, I feel that my children will learn in a safe environment that will excite their imagination. Palm Valley School is just that, a community of scholars and scholar-practitioners! Our children, Ethan and Elizabeth, LOVE attending school! They wake up each morning eager to begin another day at PVS! The enthusiasm for attending Palm Valley School and their zeal to learn is very infectious.

We are the McLachlans. We are educators; a Principal of a public elementary school and a School Psychologist. Our children could attend any school within our respective school districts; however, we decided to have them attend Palm Valley School. After inquiring about Palm Valley School, we scheduled a personal tour of the campus. Needless to say, we were impressed! The warmth of the Staff and the welcoming smiles from every person we encountered immediately made us feel like we belonged.

As educators, we know the dynamics of implementing a curriculum that’s not only challenging but also engaging for students. Palm Valley School has accomplished this task! Whether it’s conceptualizing a science project, a new innovative concept of learning mathematics, or developing a better understanding of cultural diversity, Palm Valley School is second to none.

Our children have attended Palm Valley School since they were in Preschool. Throughout their educational journey, they have experienced a nurturing and loving learning community. Their teachers have gone above and beyond to ensure that all students develop the necessary skills to become modern-day learners.

We would like to personally thank Palm Valley School for providing a supportive and loving environment for our children. Under the leadership of Mrs. Susan Rice and her amazing staff, we believe that Palm Valley School is the place to be!
