    "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."

    "The learning aspect of the school was okay. It was nothing special. No after school activities. Office staff extremely rude to parents including my own. Nurse also very rude. Physical Education classes are harsh."

    "Both my children attended Tropical Elementary. I was pleased with the school Educationally and they they were prepared for Middle School. However, I felt that the principal seemed to cater to the wealthy families in the community. Often allowing them to pick classes and teachers, the same kids always picked for special assignments etc, etc,. Not enough activites offered to children. No tutor program for children who are weak in subjects. Office staff are rude."
