  • I think Palmer Pillians is a pretty good school compared to where my daughter came from. The teaching corriculum is far way different, The teachers seem to really care and there may be a little bit of walking in the halls, but ive seen worse. The only problem i have hadis witnessing the band director get rude when a new chid was coming from another school and the parent inquired about putting her child in band, and commented on where he last played, the director said, no, " i cant take him!!!" Its not what yu say, but how you say it.

  • my child attends this school and the 6th grade principle is great although there are a lot things at pillians that could change the students run loose all over the place and are very disrespectful and so are some of the staff for instance if the lady at the front desk would send some of the students that sit at the front desk with her back to class are desinated place and encourage other students to go to class it would maybe encoourge the others to go to class anyway sometimes it looks like a scene from lean on me the movie

  • i go toy palmer pillans middle school and when i first came to pillans i was inlove with this school i was so impressed because my elementary teacher is the principle and she's a good principle and i respect her decisions she has made for pillans.i am in the eight grade and pillans is becoming a mess and i think it needs to stop.children running everywhere,children getting suspended,teachers leaving all this stuff has to stop and i think that all student and teachers even the principle even janitors should take responsibility for their actions by making pillans back to the school it was before and i mean that because this school does'nt even have to be like this
