    "Tropical has long been a vastly overrated educational institution. The neighborhood is a blend of 90% elitist families and 10% regular folks. More parents hang out around this school during daytime hours than probably any other in the county with Suntree the possible exception -- they don't work for a living. The focus is more on test scores than improving conditions within and around the classrooms. Kids aren't taught proper methods of communication with their peers, or how to blend in a melting pot society. It's the closest thing to a prep school mentality on taxpayer dime. Exclusivity without delivering quality education. Nasty, snobbish attitudes abound from the parents, staff, and teachers. It reflects in the student population. This is the "me, me, me" self-entitlement, princes and princesses school if you're looking for one. Search elsewhere to educate your children in the real world and arm them with broad people skills."

    "since the new principal came this year things have drastically went downhill. The office staff that has been here for years retired just about a month ago. The new office staff is completely rude very unprofessional. The teachers at the school, for the most part, are wonderful. Unfortunately most of the administration only care about receiving federal money. Because of that they are quick to label a child with something like a ADHD. I know several parents that are pulling their children out of school come January so they can homeschool their kids... It's the only way there will be no child left behind. I would highly recommend pulling your children out of school anyway... Simply due to the fact that this new Common Core that's being pushed by our federal government is a joke."

    "Horrible horrible school. Run down, dirty cafeteria and the 2nd grade teachers are burnt out! The office staff is rude and the principals are more interested in what they are wearing than what the kids are doing. So much bullying going on! So sad. Very overworked teachers and not much caring on the administrative part. Terrible speech program. How this school is rated a 10 is beyound me."

    "I attended Tropical from the time I was in Kindergarten to 6th grade and I can honestly say that the only thing I can really have a negative comment on is the students. The teachers themselves are amazing and will in a heartbeat take care of the students. Now I have no idea why any of the people would have a negative comment on the faculty, I grew up with the office staff and in my experience they are amazing people, they were nothing but KIND to the people who deserved it and to the students, and they have PLENTY of after school activities, that take place in Before-and-after school care, such as cheerleading spanish, karate, lego club, patrols, book bash, ect. The principal was amazing and absolutely kind-hearted. Like I said this school is amazing."
