    "There are no words...this school is horrible! Some teachers are great, but the administration and the 1st grade teacher my daughter has is terrible. Our concerns are almost completely ignored. And if I am asked to donate one more time I am going to lose my mind."

    "Disappointed that my concerns are pushed away. I also am in shock that they allow kids in 1st grade to bring cell phones to school and that the older kids can show younger kids inappropriate videos on google from their phones on buses. This school doesn't even deserve one star. I wont even start to get into the teachers there."

    "5th grade specifically the teachers my child has are truly uncaring. They have humiiated and embarassed my child in front of peers. The principal does nothing and supports his staff. When brought to his attention, the teachers acted very unprofessional and childish. I have experienced backlash due to my complaints. The year is halfway over and my child cannot wait to leave. My child has also been treated poorly by her classmates and the teachers do not help in any way. They also add to the problem and encourage poor behavior. The principal is cold. I would strongly discourage any family from sending their child to this school"

    "Tropical was our first choice school for our daughter. I have since been very disapointed with how the school handles certain issues like bullying and fundraising. The teachers dismiss any concerns you have for issues on the playground(for example a kindergartner being repeatedly pushed into the sidewalk or sand face first) as a game between children, or being hit on the bus repeatedly and nothing is done. I feel it teaches our children that telling a teacher you are being hurt does nothing. This school does excel at fundraising as every week it requests money for some cause or other but when it comes down to the safety of my child I'm left bewildered by their lack of concern."
