    Palmer Trinity School is an exceptional school. The teachers and staff are very supportive and go beyond the call of duty. My daughter is a rising 8th grader. Any difficulties that you may have are quickly rectified by the MS Head of School. He is awesome! The lines of communication are always open. The teachers encourage students to participate in other activities. The school has a high standard for education and makes sure all students are equipped with advanced technology and training in advance. Also, the sports coaches and other extracurricular sponsors are very considerate of the students' schedules.

    I honestly love Palmer. I used to dislike it a lot, and wrote a petty review because of it. But looking back, I realize that I have formed incredible relationships within this school and have grown as a person and as a thinker. In truth, I used to dislike Palmer because of the academic rigor and the lack of flexibility in class choices. I wanted to attend a school that had a stronger art department and a stronger focus on freedom of expression. Palmer hinders a lot of that with rules such as no "unnatural" hair colors and a strict dress code. However, I truly believe that Palmer is the best private school in Miami. Compared to the others, Palmer's community is nurturing and inclusive. The small classes allow for amazing relationships with teachers (yes, a lot of my best friends have been my teachers) and development of passions. The work load is a bit over the top, though.
    Palmer Trinity School is a good school for college readiness, as a college predatory school it aims to help it's students continue into higher learning. I would like to see better connection of the administration towards the students, there is a large disconnect between the two which leads to the administration making decisions that the student body struggles with.
