Every Palms teacher has a website. You can find the websites of your child's teachers on the Teachers page.

  • Click the teacher's name to go to his or her website, where you'll find information about their classes, room number, schedule, messages to parents and students, downloadable documents, and/or photos.
  • Click the envelope icon next to a teacher's name to send that teacher a message. However, if you want to meet with a teacher, follow the procedures for setting appointments.

Palms principal, Dr. Moriuchi, proudly holds our latest academic award issued by the agency that assesses secondary educational institutions. Palms is fully accredited for Grades 6-7-8 by the Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Last spring, Palms underwent a rigorous assessment of academic programs and overall education, ultimately earning WASC approval. While we’ve always been proud of the solid education Palms students receive, this marks a notable achievement, particularly as this is a new standard being applied to middle school programs. Congratulations to our Palms students, teachers and staff!
