    "This school has been going downhill for the last few years. It is not run by the administration but by a single person who was a para and now wormed her way to clerical. Any parents that were once welcome in this school are not because the school is afraid of them finding out all the dishonest things that go on. The children are no longer the main focus of this school. Teachers and staff are totally discussed and most staff send their children to other schools, which has never been the case before . Many parents have gone to the superintendent of schools but nothing is done. The staff and parents should be spoken to about this but when someone important comes to the school only "specipeopleget to talk to them. This is so sad and an example of a wonderful school turned bad ."

    "I moved from out of state and enrolled my children in this school in October. On the first day of school my 1st grader came home upset that his teacher left him outside durning recess. I spoke to the teacher (Mrs. Levinson) and she admitted that since he was a new student she forgot about him. After a few other issues we finally were able to meet the principle and she decided to move him to another classroom which was a blessing (Mrs. Bernard). Lastly, my 4th grader told me that her art teacher yells a lot and even said he felt like strangling someone. I'm so upset that my husband and I have decided to move back home and leave Florida all together. The kids are also very mean and rude and we don't want our kids in this environment. This has been my personal experience I hope yours will be better. Good Luck."

    "Some teachers are great, but most are not. This school has a high rate of retention into the first grade. There is no activities or projects whatsoever. The staff in the office is rude. If you want your child to be a failure, then this is the school for you."

    "Back when I first started teaching, I had several offers, but held out for Tamarac Elementary. I have never regretted my decision, considering myself very lucky to work with such caring, dedicated people in an environment that feels like a family school on a very large campus. In addition to providing an excellent core curriculum, we offer a Garden Club to help enhance the beauty of our campus with its large butterfly garden and plethora of native species of plant life, Chess Club, Recorder Club, American Sign Language Signing Chorus, and Drama Club. I always enjoy meeting the parents and family members during our Curriculum Nights, and appreciate the supportive PTA. Despite real budgeting concerns that eliminated these considerations at many schools, we are fortunate to have specials that include music, art, media, and physical education (in an air conditioned gymnasium that was *beautifully* renovated earlier this school year). My sincere thanks goes out to all of the families who entrust their children to our care. It's a pleasure to work in such a wonderful, safe, enriching environment as we work to help those precious little people thrive!"

    "I personally was not pleased with this school. I had transferred my daughter from Challanger to this school and it was a HUGE mistake. She did great academically at Challanger and in Tamarac she was struggling. The staff were rude, there is no playground for recess, my daughter recess area consisted of a sidewalk on the North side of the school by the parking lot! No end of the year awards for students who read the most, No math nights or family nights, no after school tutoring available to students. Her teacher (Mrs. Pollack) was the worst! She was the most sarcastic teacher I've ever met, she's run down and tired of her job, does not really control her classroom students...If you don't like teaching anymore then don't teach and take out your unhappiness on the kids! The school is not very clean, the end of the year concert was disorganized. Almost everything about this school I was not happy with and there is so much more and I was surprised because I thought this was going to be a good school. I am taking her out and putting her back in Challanger."
