    "This school is very overrated! We moved to this school zone because we were told it was the best. We are very disappointed. While we had an excellent teacher, the administration staff is very condescending and rude! They try and make it your fault when they didn't follow through. Unprofessional. If you have a child who has special needs you are bringing the test scores of the school down and are treated like 2nd class citizens. We are trying to find a different school. Unless the administration can get off their negative high horses this school will always be terrible!"

    "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."
